Not An Easy Week

As glad as I am to be back on schedule, this week has been tough. I think it’s because I’m tired. I feel a strong urge to revert to my non-workout, eat-anything-I-want ways. But I’ve worked too hard, and this is too awesome an opportunity to give up on.

So I’m choosing to keep moving…literally.

This morning I got up at 5am and was at the gym by 5:15. Not because I’m some super-athlete, but I knew I had a busy day and didn’t want the excuses to build up in my mind.

My plan until this difficult time passes is to take it one day at a time. I’m working on one wise choice at a time and trying not to look too far ahead. And I’m rehearsing why I’m doing this. Here’s the Bible verse I’m clinging too:

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
