I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me

Thursday, November 15, 2012

I just read that on another blog and I really hit me that I am trying to do it on my own and not looking for my strength in Him. Time to sit down and look over my priorities. It has to be my relationship with God First and foremost. then I can work on my weight and my health. With Him I can do all things and so I will continue on this journey and make baby steps when that is all I can do. I will rejoice because I can do that.

    Have faith and know you will reach your goals.

One day at a time, one hour at a time, one minute at a time.

    Hey, that's MY declaration!
He makes all the difference. "But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us." (2 Cor 4:7) It's not about what I can do in my own flesh and strength - that would be to my glory so that I could boast in myself. But it is to GOD'S glory.
If you haven't checked it out yet, I recommend the site settingcaptivesfree.com and doing the study, The Lord's Table.
Blessings on the journey! Shel

slow recovery

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

I seem to have to go back to the basics to get my motivation back. So this week I am trying to eat right. It is a slow uphill climb. I had full intentions of working out yesterday but my energy level was so low I went to bed. I slept over 9 hours and I'm not sure I am fully rested yet. So I will try again today to exercise. but I am tracking my food so that is a start. I think I am eating too much. I was sure I went over yesterday but when I tracked it it was in range. Maybe because they think I am exercising?

I have come to realize how much my mind hinders me. It makes me feel defeated and overwhelmed. It plays games with me all the time. So now that I know this I must do something to change it. I am not sure how just yet but it will come. I am tired of being that sour person. I have come a long way and I know I can't stop yet. So like so many have said Just do it. Fake it till you make it. So today I will go back to the beginning again and start out small and work up. God is my strength and I am wondering if I am getting caught up in myself and not relying on Him. Oh I know I have to do my part but I know without God I couldn't even do that. I need to turn my eyes back to Him and stop looking at myself.

I have been working oh these habit changing things since sept. 10th and have been doing well. But I am struggling right now. I have been getting over a cold (last week) and find it hard to get back into anything. My eating has been poor and so has been my exercising. My motivation is low. In my mind I want to keep going but my tiredness wins out. I so feel like quitting right now and settle for where I am. every time I try to lose this is as low as I ever get. It seems I can't bet below this weight.

    Come on....put your clothes on. Lace up your shoes and go outside. Take in a deep breath of fresh air...and put one foot in front of the other...even if it's only 10 minutes.

Come on emoticon

  You can do it!! The hardest part of overcoming any obstacle for me is overcoming my own stinkin' thinkin'. I subscribe to the theory of "Change your mind to change your life."

Don't give up. Two steps forward and one step backward is still forward momentum. Catch your breath, reevaluate, and get back into the fight. (Frankly, I'm saying this as much for myself as for you. I've had a medical setback, but I'm now ready to get back to my feet and fight.) emoticon emoticon

    Don't quit, don't go backwards try to , at least, maintain until you are feeling better. Drink lots of liquids to get rid of the cold. Do small amounts of exercise even in 10 minute segments until you can do more. Just don't give in to the tired feelings. Something will work so emoticon emoticon

    Time to go back to the beginning. Take one habit refocus on it and getting better. As you gain you strength back you will get back to everything you were doing. emoticon emoticon

as the weather has been getting colder I have had to exercise inside. so now I am treadclimbing. It is a big change from walking outside. Boy do I feel different muscles. I also started doing more ST so I feel those muscles even more. Change is good it makes me feel like I'm doing something. That sore feeling.
