There’s More Holes in My Belt & I Love Rowing!!!
FarrSide of Life (February 10, 2017)… Week 2 is done and I am down another 4.8 pounds, for a total weight loss of 19.6 pounds in two weeks! Wow!! Happy Dance time!!! I already feel so much better and so much stronger. I definitely have more energy than I did two weeks ago. My belt even has more holes in it than it did two weeks ago!! 🙂
During week 2 I averaged eating 1,358 calories and drinking 160 ounces of water per day. Eating right and drinking only water is really making a huge difference in my energy level and how I feel throughout the day. It’s the only explanation for physically being able to get up at 4:30 a.m. everyday Monday – Friday to go workout! I am getting stronger. I can feel it!
During this morning’s workout I tried rowing as a different cardio exercise. I LOVED IT!! I was able to knock out 1,000 meters in only 7 minutes. (I was only going to try and do 400 meters to start, but once I got into it, I was motivated). I know that’s not much for some, but for me it’s huge! I plan to add it to my workout everyday next week to really ramp up my cardio training, so if you see me and I’m humming the tune of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat, Gently Down the Stream…” please don’t think I’ve lost it. 😉
Until next week, let me leave you with this thought… God is never reluctant to receive us in Jesus’ name. There is never a time when you cannot come to God, through faith in Jesus’ sacrifice on your behalf, and find love and forgiveness. God sent Jesus to take our place on the cross so that He could receive us day after day, time after time, moment by moment throughout our lives. People have asked me, “How can you get up so early everyday to workout?” or “How can you drink so much water?” The answer, to me, is simple… It’s not me, it’s God! Galatians 2:20 tells me that, “I have been CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST; it is no longer I who live, but CHRIST WHO LIVES IN ME; and the life which I now live in the flesh I LIVE BY FAITH in the SON OF GOD who loved me and GAVE HIMSELF FOR ME.”
Thank you to so many who continue to pray and support Jennifer and me! Your prayers, texts, calls, e-mails and posts are so encouraging and uplifting. We see them all and we read every single one of them. We could not do this without you!! Please keep them coming.
