A Day off is a Challenge
Wednesday, February 18, 2015
I am happy to report I went to the gym yesterday, to a "silver sneakers" class. I was a little nervous, for no reason. I got there a little early, did what the other people were doing and it went fine. The other classmates were mostly "silver citizens" and the work-out didn't make me sweat a lot, but there were moves I couldn't do. Mostly ab work. I will go again, my friend goes all the time and was happy to see me.
I plan to go to a Zumba class tonight. That will be more of a challenge to my fitness level. I am determined to reach my goals, and I've got to do more sweating in order to make it happen.
I am happy with my eating choices yesterday, but I am on guard today. On my day off, I often give myself permission to do (and eat) whatever I want. But I know that to be a false freedom. I tell myself I deserve this cookie, that just one won't hurt. I am committed to also telling myself that there are long term consequences attached to that cookie that I Don't Want. And I will review my goals and motivation for rejecting those kind of food choices today.
Just writing these words gives me strength to overcome this weakness. I will pray for strength today as well. And I will have faith that Christ will be close by to give me the support I need.
