Trying To Keep My Motivation Going

James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
We had a lot of rain the past four days. Today, it isn't raining, but it has gotten very hot. It is 6:30 p.m. and 93 degrees outside. It is 83 degrees in the house with humidity at 65%. So it feels a lot hotter in the house than it actually is. Now I could have used the rain and heat for an excuse not to exercise. However, I know this verse and I know as a Christian my body is the temple of the HOLY GHOST. If I don't take care of this body, I grief the HOLY SPIRIT, which in turn grieves me. Plus, to know what I have to do to take care of my body and not to do it is sin. I can't give in to lust of the flesh. I have to be disciplined. Yes, I know there is a time to rest. Rest is important. I have exercise everyday but one during the week. I took one day to rest my muscles and body. I watched my food in a careful manner. I feel blessed the LORD is helping me with it all. I exercised early in the day to beat the heat. Except, one evening we went walking during a rain break and it was hot and humid. We still walked 40 minutes using the interval method of walking. I rewarded myself with a cold bottle of water and a cup of cold watermelon. Mmmmmmmm! I am keeping a closer watch on the cholesterol grams I consume. I am eating more fish and white meat of chicken. I am eating all vegetable meals a few times a week. I am praying I have a good weight lose this week when I weigh in. I do feel blessed.
