Today is the first day of week 2 for the Peak313 Challenge! So far, so good! I've done great with my workouts. I'm still doing Insanity (which I will finish on October 23rd). I also add some things since I want a little extra cardio on days that he just does stretching, and I will add some weight days since his workouts are just body weight workouts...
I love the fact that Clare is giving up weekly Bible verses to memorize. I had always told myself that I needed to memorize scripture, but something would come up or I wasn't sure which verses to learn first. This is awesome because she chooses the weekly verse and even gives a print out for it. I keep mine typed out in the "Notes" section on my iPhone. I also have her little memory cards printed off and taped them into my workout planner.
This week's verse is Matthew 6:34 "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." This is such a good reminder for me. I am a "planner." That can be good in a lot of instances, but sometimes it can make me worry about things that I do not need to worry about yet. I need to remind myself to give it to God because He has it all under control anyways. My mom used to call me her "little worry wart" because I'd worry so much. I am much better about it now that I am older, but still something that I need to pray about!
Eating-wise: I'm doing OK. I have been trying to stay away from processed foods. Cutting portions. Eating more fruits and veggies. I was supposed to go to Weight Watchers with a friend tomorrow (we are both Lifetime but have only been going once a month to weigh in to keep our Lifetime status), but one of her co-workers is sick so she can't go. I think I will still go though, it keeps me motivated to hear the others that are there. It keeps me accountable with my weight, too.
