That is a quote I read in a devotional yesterday. Since I just turned 31, I've decided I want to focus on becoming the Proverbs 31 woman this year! I set myself goals for each month related to a verse from the chapter. This month: Noble Character.
Living by myself, I tend toward the selfish since most of my day-to-day decisions involve only me! But I'm working on putting others first and this quote really spoke to me...I so often try to put forward the image of "perfection" even though it's obvious (being nearly 100 pounds overweight) that there is SOMETHING wrong.
When you read/watch weight loss stuff you often hear, it's time to put YOU first, time to focus on YOU. And while I understand the sentiment, recently I've been watching some videos called "I am second" and they are all about putting God first. If I do that, if I allow him to be Lord even over my health choices, and respect my body as a living sacrifice, temple of the holy spirit, then maybe I will get the same result.
SPEAKING of results... I finally hit the 5kg (10lb) lost mark today!
Looking at my tracker, it's taken me almost a month to lose this one, though I lost two last month. I'm really happy to see my work pay off, including insanity. I finished the video that I had to stop halfway through earlier in the week, and that felt great. My favorite so far is probably cardio recovery...well except for the pulses
and I must say, I do enjoy the fact that Shaun T takes his shirt off at some point during every video
Ok I'll stop now... time to ice my ankles, take a shower, and drink some tea for my sore throat.
