I have come to a bump in the road. It arrived sooner than I expected. I knew that changing my lifestyle would not come without its challenges and that I would have to learn how to navigate them, unfortunately I was not prepared for it. I have been derailed and am struggling to get the train back on its tracks. I’m eating mostly healthy—though I could do with out the bowl of oil-popped cheese popcorn at night—and have yet to jump back into my workouts.
Spiritually, whenever I feel off or if God feels distant I go back to the pragmatics. I pick up my Bible and read it. I open my mouth or pick up my pen and pray—if even for 10 minutes. The same is true here. I just need to go back to the pragmatics. I need to track my food. I need to work out—if even for 10 minutes. Those two things are the building blocks of this healthy style. When all feels lost as long as I have them, I can build again.
