Good morning! Today I have really nothing exciting to report other than I have kept my commitment to go to curves 5 days a week now for 2 weeks. I like how I feel after I work out and so that really has kept me motivated to keep going back. I only have lost 1/4 of a pound this week and I’m sure that most of it is because it’s that time of month (Like you really wanted to know that right? :o)). My eating habits are all over the place(see below and you will know why), one day I do really well and the next I just struggle with every temptation but I just have to remind myself that this is a journey and not a destination and hopefully I will get better as the days roll by.
Last week I went to a homeopathic doctor and got some answers as to why I am not feeling so well most of the time and he put me on a MAJOR diet. I am off Dairy, Wheat & Sugar. My first question to him when he said that was “what’s left?” So I am struggling with this new diet a little bit to cause as soon as someone says “you can’t have this”, that’s when I really want it! He also suggested that I do a fast in the near future for more than 7 days so that is something I am considering as well but I don’t want to do it just cause he told me to do it (cause then I will fail again) I want to do it for spiritual renewal reasons. I just have to figure out when to start and that is really the toughest part because the first 3 days of any fast are brutally hard for me. I want to do it but for the right reasons so I can stay motivated to keep going!
That is my week so far…how are you doing?
Here is the verse that I am meditating on this week, I hope it encourages you today!
2 Cor 12:9 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.”
