Obeying God By Caring For Myself

Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31 (NASB)

Obesity is the sin that no one talks about.

Am I being judgmental? Yep. Of myself. I struggle with turning to food for comfort instead of obeying God.

But we believers need to wake up and face the facts about our own sin, which we wear on the outside, before we go judging others concerning their sins.

God created food for us ...

God created food for us to enjoy. But he didn't create it for us to overindulge.

Yep, as a repeat weight gainer and loser, I have some work to do. But I'm not sugar coating it anymore.

Fitness Minutes: 101,454

My Goals:
My overall goal is to take care of this body God has entrusted me with.

Most motivating goal: Keep my family history of diabetes and heart disease at bay. My best chance to be around for kids & grand-kids is to be as lean as possible.

At 5'9", get consistently into a size 6 while putting on oodles of leg muscle!

Keep the reactive hypoglycemia I have when I am heavier at bay.

If God does decide to take me early, have my organs in excellent shape so they can save/extend the lives of others. What better way to leave than helping someone else stay?

My Program:
For my eating, I am doing Weight Watchers, with an emphasis on protein and minimal processed foods.

For workouts I have a coach here locally who makes my programs. His exercises are all whole body or big muscle (legs, chest, back, shoulders) moves. On the days I am not doing his program, I do a few exercises for the smaller muscles (mostly arms and calves) and cardio.

I stretch thoroughly after every workout- Have for years. It's an important part of fitness!

Personal Information:
I am certified as both a Personal Trainer and a Health Coach through the American Council on Exercise (ACE).

I live in Wichita Falls, Texas, but am originally from the SF Bay Area. In my adult life I have lived in Illinois, Southern California, Hampton Roads Virginia, Panama City Florida, Louisville Kentucky, Marion Ohio, and here in Texas.

We have a total of seven kids, four of which emerged from my body and three from the body of my ex-wife-in-law. :-) Only one lives at home full time still. We also have two beautiful grandchildren.

I enjoy all sorts of boring domestic stuff, but I also have a bit of a daredevil streak in me and like to try new things.

Other Information:
These have become my own original catch-phrases:
- "The shame is not in falling down. The shame is in not getting back up."
- "Any exercise is better than no exercise."
- "Do the Right thing, even when it's not easy."
- "Do what scares you! "
- "You can't know what you don't know"
- "If you do positive things to your body, your body can't help but respond positively."
- "An obstacle isn't a road block- it's simply something to either be climbed over or navigated around."

Favorite quote NOT by me:
- "You gotta put your behind in the past." (Pumba to Timon in The Lion King)

Favorite Bible Verse:
- "There is no temptation you are faced with that others haven't also faced. But God, who is faithful, will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you can stand and will give you a way to escape the temptation so that you will be able to handle it." 1st Corinthians 10:13 NNAV [New Nancy Anne Version ;-)]

Hi! I was wondering if you have any recipes you like using frozen vegetables, and could you share a recipe or do a video about how to prepare them?
