Small Successes

Saturday, November 24, 2012

Well it's day 2 since I decided that I have got to make a change. My health was starting to feel out of control, and I realized that I cannot keep going that way. Day 1 had some successful and some not so successful events. I'll start by my success: I walked a mile yesterday! I could tell that it has been way too long since I have exercised because 3 years ago at this time I was running a 5k, and yesterday I felt exhausted after a mile. But I told myself, I have to start somewhere! The not so successful aspect was the eating habits. My father-in-law treated my hubby and me to pizza last night and I did not do well with portions. I also had a bowl of ice cream and a half a piece of pecan pie. But I am going to make sure to recognize my success! And today I will try again with the eating habits!

I think it is very important for me to track what I'm doing (I guess it provides some accountability). So I am going to try to blog my progress each day.

Romans 12:1--
Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.

    Good for you! Good for you! Good for YOU! Awesome intentions and yes, there will be some less than stellar decisions along the way. Perfectly ok. I think slip ups motivate us to pay closer attention to what we want to be doing. Awesome plan you have to exercise and track. Sounds like success to me!
