"Moving" Through

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Well so far this year I am managing to get organized. I am sticking with the task and slowly getting things done. I have discovered I do not deal well when things do not go as planned. I appear to go with the flow and keep going however this is another emotion trigger for me. I will eat and not always things that are good for me. Do you do this? I have been working through this and this past week managed to push through this a few times. I am trying to exercise through this if I can. Just a thought, maybe a 15 minutes of walking, running the Wii or something when your emotions get to you before you reach for something to go into your mouth.

I also was a little discouraged this morning when I got up to discover the scales have not moved at all. I am determined that this is just a season, probably gained some muscle since I have been exercising. This would normally be another trigger for me. How about you? I am going to still do something good for me today like getting my hair done and know that I am going in the right direction. I am going to "move" through this.

What are your triggers? I think half the battle of working through them is knowing them. Do you know yours?

Lets all "move" through our emotions!

Have you ever thought about how things in your life affect you both in a negative and positive way? I am reading a book about how to be a better wife to my husband, which has nothing to do with some of the stuff I seem to be learning. Only God! I guess I am just ready to receive.

I have moved many times in my life and with each move I have gained something. One is always weight which I do not work through until I get settled. I moved 7 years ago and put on 23 pounds with the move. I lost 11 of those pounds last year and then stopped. It is me not exercising and eating right at the same time. I seem to sabotage myself. Change is happening and most of it good in the last year so it is helping me to focus. I have learned I need to focus more on God and less on me.

God has changed my circumstances for a reason and instead of focusing on how unhappy I am about this, I need to embrace this. Pray for those around me, help where I can and most of all enjoy my family. Time with family and friends is always at a premium. Seasons with my children are fleeting and they are not going to care what I weighed.

I am clinging to Philippians 4:13 - I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

What has caused your weight gain?

Blessings In Christ
