(After the devotion is where my motivation will be!)
Well this is hard to do this week. I had a massive cold so I didn't exercise, not even once. I tracked my food for 1 day and that's it. BUT I lost weight! 1.4 pounds to be exact. I'm down to 205.4 pounds now. Approaching ONEderland again! I'm grateful for the loss even though I did not deserve it. I just got it from not wanting to eat from being sick.
This week I plan to exercise 3-4 times, no less than 3. I will also track 3 times this week. I have to start helping myself. I just forgot how I ever made time for all this...now for the devotion and motivation!
Daily devotion from Bedside Blessings by Charles Swindoll for November 2nd:
If we will only believe and ask, a full measure of God's grace and peace is available to any of us. By the wonderful, prevailing mercy of God, we can find purpose in the scattering and sadness of our lives. We can not only deal with suffering but rejoice through it. Though our pain and our disappointment and the details of our suffering may differ, there is an abundance of God's grace and peace available to each one of us.
"All things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive."-Matthew 21:22
Right now my biggest motivation is something that dawned on me recently: We only have to struggle with our weight here, on earth. Because in Heaven we will not have this problem. It will be taken from us! So this is for now, not forever!
