So, this morning, I am literally rushing around, because I don't want to be late to ZUMBA & I have so been looking forward to it! AND what happens...omgosh, class is cancelled again. The very sweet instructor had surgery and they couldn't get a sub. Now, here's my interior battle...
ME:"But, my heart was set on Zumba!"
Other ME:"Well, it's not all about you, now is it?"
ME:"I know, I feel sorry for her & truth is I'd love to send her some flowers. I miss her too, not just her class."
Other ME:"Oh, so you do have a heart."
ME:"Yeah, and I left it at the gym." LOL
So, I left the gym without working out & I am hoping I will do my eliptical later, but have you ever had your heart set on something & then it was just like somebody let the wind out of your ballon? Well, that's me, but I do thank God I am healthy enough to get my big butt(well, I hear guys like big butts, so maybe that's a plus?!haha)outta bed, run my errands in my nice warm car that I have the priviledge to drive b/c I have a license(also a priviledge...I think sometimes people forget that), run my errands to the bank(that I am blessed to say has some money in it, I think ;),and go to my gym, where I am blessed to have a paid membership....well, I think you get where I am going....
Other ME:"Yeah, shut up already & count your blessings!"
ME:"Okay, I hate it when you are right!"
Other ME:"I told you so!"
ME:"Time to take that attitude check again...Let me change my OMGosh to....
OMGosh, It's another beautiful day you have been blessed with.I wake up & the devil shudders b/c he knows I mean business!I am blessed with more blessings than I can even count.....so let's go! It's time for WORK! Let's see what the "new & improved you looks like today!"Now if I can only get excited about Plan B...the home gym...to be continued....

Okay, I know I am not alone here....New year, New plans & a dozen ways to get there...otherwise known as information overload. I am drowning in it & because of "too much information", nothing is getting done. UGH!!! We've all been there from time to time, but in order to be successful, we have to take one thing at a time. It's kind of like our walk with Christ. When we get saved, we are still that same person, with all the same flaws. If you were bald yesterday, guess what...you're still bald today. But, God begins to work on us from the inside and transformation begins to take place. We all wish all transformation could take place overnight in our instant society. BUT, would that really be what is best for us? I think when we walk through things, it helps to shape us into who we need to become; who God has called us to be. So, just for today, let us all choose just one thing to change & do it. We may need to practice this thing for many days, before moving on to something new, but in the process, we can create good habits, and permanent change. Thank God He never leaves us or forsakes us, which means He will be right there with us. He will supply all our needs according to His riches in glory, so He will give us what we need to get through it.Just choose one thing to change....one thing at a time. Walk through it and grow into all you are called to be.Inch by inch it's a cinch. And remember, just like the tortoise & the hare....slow and steady wins the race! Big hugs to you all!

Will today be the day I give in...I give up? Will today be the day I let my emotions determine my success? Well, I would have every excuse..I'm tired. I don't feel like it, I don't want to work out alone....and on & on the list goes. If we want to find excuses, we never have to look very far. BUT, on the other hand, why don't we choose THIS DAY to instead let the positives outweigh the negatives. Like for instance, Today if I don't give in to all my excuses... I will feel better about myself, I will make a step in the right direction. I WILL WIN! Just this one thing, can begin my continued journey towards healthy living! We know all the benefits, so let's, in the words of Nike, "JUST DO IT"! We have nothing to loose(except unhealthy habits & pounds) and everything to win!

Today is a day of new beginnings. Many will make New Year's Resolutions only to break them. I believe today can be a day where we can make permanent change...change for a better me with better health. New dreams, visions & goals...something to strive for. I know there will be setbacks, & roadblocks, BUT I also know I am not alone on my journey. God is there with me & he promises to never leave or forsake me...so HE will help me on my journey. AND HE will help you too if you let him. And ya know what? We can all be there for each other. The journey will be tough, but so is life everyday. BUT we are not alone...we are all there together! And together & with God...ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE... if we only believe!CHOOSE TO BELIEVE!

What is truth?
Do you tell the truth...to yourself I mean?
God's word says, "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free."
I want to expound on this....
The truth is the opposite of lies.God is the father of truth.He never lied and He lives inside of you, if you know Him as your Lord & Savior.So then, why do we listen to the "father of lies" instead sometimes...the one who casts doubts on our dreams, who tells us we aren't worthy, who wants us to fail?
GOD, THE GOD, has called us to greater things.He says we are:
the head and not the tail, more than conquerors, the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, redeemed from the curse of the law, an overcomer, a new creation, transformed by the renewing of my mind, complete in HIM, His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works. No weapon formed against me shall prosper, for my righteousness is of the Lord. Whatever I do shall prosper for I am like a tree planted by the rivers of water. Greater is He that is in me, than He that is in the world. God's angels have charge over me and keep me. My pathway is filled with life! I put on the full armor of God & win! I delight myself in the Lord, and He gives me the desires of my heart! The Lord is my shepherd, I do not want for anything! God supplies all my needs! I sow bountifully & I reap bountifully! I trust in the Lord with all my heart & He directs my paths. I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. I let the peace of God rule in my heart & I cast my cares onto Him.
That's the TRUTH! GOD is truth! This is who I am & this is who you are!
Look, I am not where I need to be, but thank God I'm not where I used to be! I'm okay ( because God says I am and accepts me for who I am) and I'm on my way!
I choose to walk in truth and VICTORY!
What is TRUTH to you? I hope you will choose to walk in truth with me. Be encouraged my spark friends and LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF TRUTH!
P.S. If you haven't listened to the song, THE VOICE OF TRUTH, by Casting Crowns, I hope you will look it up. It will really lift your spirits today if they need lifting!
