Yep, I'm there again. The place where I'm physically at my limit. I am no longer able to be comfortable and all my clothes are getting too small and nothing new in the stores fits right and again I am finding myself at the edge of what I can handle.
How can I expect my body to be strong and ready to serve others and get through what I ask it to get through everyday if I am overloading it with junk? Some people turn to various strict diet and work out regimens. I'm not interested in losing a bunch of weight rapidly and focusing on the pounds and results. What I am interested in, first and foremost is getting back to my online bible study called The Lord's Table: Phase 1. I was part of the way in to this fantastic and FREE 60 day study before and dropped the ball. I have an obligation to honor God in all my ways and that includes the health I have control over. The study will help me to make better eating decisions and discover the importance of being intentional about working exercise into my life a few times a week. If I get a grip on a few simple things, the Lord will control the results and I'm ok with that. So, enough is enough already, it's time for me to get focused!
I'd like to get back to things I used to do that were fun, like Six Flags or going back to Washington DC and Baltimore but in this condition, I am not ready for that, that's for sure! Not only do I need to get my physical self into shape, but get my finances into shape, too. I want to save up for it so I won't have any debt as in my prior trips, I'd also need to look into things like travel insurance online and new luggage.
I'll come back and share my tips and tricks. What works and what doesn't work so well. Perhaps you have a few ways you are intentional in realm of eating and exercise that you can share with me, feel free to leave a comment and let us know what works for you!
