Week one is behind me. I worked out 6 days. 3 days of strengthening training, 3 days of cardio only and 3 days of both.
I’m not a numbers type of girl, but I’ve been assured that really does only add up to 6 days.
It’s been a week of highs and low. And definitely one that’s way outside my comfort zone!
I wanted to quit about 8 different times, but I took my complaints to God and He gave me the strength to continue on.
Here are the verses I hung onto:
I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13 (NIV) and
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:33 (ESV)
Focusing on the exercise meant I pretty much ignored what I ate. This week I’ll be keeping track of my meals because I’ve decided to start a food journal.
I’m also searching for a regular schedule. I tried to fit going to the gym around what was going on and it felt rushed and frustrating. This week I’m shooting for a regular time and I’m hoping I won’t feel like A stranger at the gym.
Don’t get me wrong, everyone there has been SUPER supportive. I just feel awkward and like I don’t belong. This type of situation is where the fact that I’m an introvert works against me.
I’ll update again soon. I’m the meantime, where ever you are and whatever you’re facing, be assured that God is walking through it with you!
