Why? That's the question that I ask myself today. It seems that a few people around me have decided to embark on a healthier lifestyle this week, right during the holiday season. Why? Well...there's no set in stone reason that we have to wait until the new year to start. Jump start it now and you won't be behind but a step ahead.
The funny thing to me is that they have come to me for advice My co-worker who is almost a bean pole has discovered she's putting on a little weight and she's trying to lose some pounds before her photo shoot. She's a singer and one of her exes relayed to a friend that she's gotten too comfortable. lol... But I always tease her that she has fat potential don't get to slack as you age. So she's asking me what should she eat, discussing her meal plan of the day with me.
I'm like dear heart...as you can see I'm not exactly making any progress but I dont' mind hashing it out with you. Supporting you ...but it made me think and encouraged me to not stop. My brother is trying a gluten free regimen and he called me Monday and was discussing it with me and getting my input. I learned a lot and enjoyed the conversation. We both share the same intestinal diagnosis so it was interesting to research. He's not going strictly gluten but cutting back to see how it affects his body.
Overall...I was like don't lose your focus. Although the scale is playing tricks, you haven't been consistent with your exercise as before...but you can't stop. I believe that God will and has placed the right thing/people on my path to help me. Talking with them this week has kept the goals before me. Now my job is to keep stepping and not fall back into old habits.
Thank you God for those you place in my path daily.
