A Little Shaky
Well I feel like I started this thing so strong, but the last 2 weeks have been very different. I have had a lot of financial stress, work stress, sickness in my own body and in my children’s. I had been working out twice a day and for the past 2 weeks it has mostly just once. Waking up at 4:15 has gotten harder. I have turned that thing off almost everyday! Then, I have the best intentions about going each evening, but have found things popping up to stop me. I am ashamed to say that I have worked out about 4 times each week for the last two weeks. Now, if I wasn’t in this competition that would sound like a great thing. But it is not enough to lose weight. I have been up and down the same 4 pounds. I know that I need to get motivated again. I need to lay my stress at his feet. I need to go to bed earlier. I need to be very careful about what I put in my mouth. I haven’t been awful with my eating, but I have eaten several things out of stress not hunger! I am learning during this journey that that will be my victory. I am sure that is why I am struggling with the stress so much right now. He is teaching me things.
I am probably not going to win this thing, but I sure am learning what it takes to be a winner for life with this life long struggle I have lived. Please pray for the victory over this!
I will wake up to go to the gym. I will eat only when I am hungry. I will make wise food choices. I will keep my health and continue to improve it daily! I will be an overcomer! I press towards the mark!!
