Time & Strength

So yeah…my relationship with time isn’t pretty… it runs at a much faster pace and laps me continuously… taunting me as it passes…

However, I truly am TRYING to manage it better so bear with me… I’m making progress… but I think that journey will prove to be even tougher than this one… Especially when days turn into weeks before you realize it… It feels like it’s only been a few days since my last blog… Nope… two weeks already! And now we’re in week 8??? That just doesn’t seem possible…

Directly after my last blog…the sickness that plagued everyone else finally hit me… like a ton of bricks too… Actually, I think I was hit by two different ones… Boot camps managed to fall between hits so I made those… but I missed a few workouts… didn’t make it to the track near as much… and I graced Taco Bell with my presence after a few days of emotional madness…

I didn’t let it get the best of me though… I toughed it out… pushed through… refocused… and got back up ready to tackle my next small goal… which will help me claim Victory over my first BIG one…I’m so close I can taste it… I’m now just 14 pounds shy of losing 100 pounds since my highest weight in March 2015…

I’ve probably hit every possible roller coaster in the park… but thankfully God has managed to keep me on track by strategically placing amazing people and opportunities along the way to help…

This opportunity with RBL, in itself, has been MONUMENTAL in my success… I’m doing things now that I never imagined possible…

I grew up with asthma so even in my “skinny” days… I Never Ran… Never Planked before either… and certainly didn’t do Plank Push-Ups!!! Or Mountain Climbers!!! Or 6 Inches!!! Yeah, I’m still working on those… but I can at least do them now… even with the added weights… Squats!!! Yep… those too… as well as a number of other things… What is really incredible though is that I’m actually enjoying it!!! I look forward to it!!! I mean…we have a love/hate relationship… I dread doing them individually… but the victorious sense of accomplishment afterwards makes every burning muscle and bead of sweat worth it!!! I moan and groan and cry sometimes… yes… I cry… I get very emotional when I physically can’t do things… especially when it’s because I don’t have the strength because I don’t like to think of myself as weak… because I’m not… in any sense of the word… but I do have weaknesses… and I’m working very diligently to overcome them… and with God providing my strength… I will do just that…

I said all that to say this… NOTHING is impossible… even if it feels like it is… even if you can only start with 5 seconds at a time… like I had to on some things… do it everyday for 5 seconds…do it twice a day for 5 seconds…it will pay off!! I promise!! Next week you’ll realize you can do it for 10… then 20… then 30… before you know it, you’ll realize you’re doing things you once thought were impossible… and you’ll start to LOVE it too!!! So give it shot…

Until next time…Much Love and Many Blessings to You and Yours…♡
