That’s the way the journey feels at times. Last week, due to a sinus infection, a daughter having her gall bladder removed, and other birthday and shower get-togethers, I was unable to go to the gym but only 1-2 times all week. It has shown up in my weight this week, even though I only had 1 cheat day. I still gained 2 pounds. Consistency in exercise and nutrition is vital in continuing to be successful in this journey long after the RBL program. That setback has fueled a deeper commitment to not let up after the next 2 weeks is done. I can’t slow down. I gotta keep pushing, harder! No doubt there will be setbacks here and there along they way.. but I want to have the mindset that I am taking MANY steps forward to that 1 step back. I have a desire to finish these 2 weeks STRONG .. sinus infection or no sinus infection!! But pray for me — the 5k does have me a little weary. These sinuses have begun making my energy level (and breathing) a struggle. I want to finish the race – regardless of what place I am in or how long it takes me to do it.
I just turned 49 and decided to take charge of my life! This is my year to get healthy and fit. FITBY50 is my motto.. I know I won't be at my ultimate goal by then, but step by step I know I can do it because "I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me". I have a daughter with some disabilities and 2 grandsons I have to keep up with - this is my year!! View all posts by Donna Satterfield
