I Am Determined To Have A Successful Week

Saturday, November 30, 2013

Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

I have been stuck most of this year. My weight has gone up and down. I still have 6 pounds to lose to get back to my weight before getting sick. Each week is a challenge. Some times I do really good and some weeks I drag my feet some. Pain is the problem. I need to fight harder. I need to be more obedient to the LORD. This body belongs to HIM. It is the temple of HIS HOLY SPIRIT. With the LORD's help and some strong discipline I am determined to have a successful week. I am going all strong arm on myself.

First and foremost I want to spend more time in prayer and Bible Study. I have to feed my spiritual part of my soul the first thing of the morning as well as spiritual feeding throughout the day. I find the more time I spend with the LORD the better life is, even in tough times. emoticon emoticon

Second, I need to work on my thought processes. I can't let my mind guide me into any kind of slackness. I will use my mind to encourage my efforts this week. Journaling will be a absolute this week to remind myself what I must do to be successful. No negative thoughts or excuses are allowed. A sound spiritual frame of mind to help me listen to the LORD as HE leads me. emoticon

Third, more discipline for my body. Be mindful of how I handle preparing my food, measuring every little thing. I will eat more fresh foods. I will keep a super close account of all fat, sodium, and cholesterol. I will make sure I keep on the low end of the Nutritional Tracker. Exercise everyday this week. No excuses! Pain or no pain I will make myself get out there and move my body. I need to put more into my exercise. I need to do at least an hour or more. I need to work harder. Remember to stretch each time. Ice my back afterwards. I know I feel better after exercising. I will remind myself of that.

GOD created us mind, body, and soul! All three must be balanced. If I am slack in anyway on any of those three, I will have problems. Keeping all three in sync is key to losing weight. They are important aspects for daily living.

I wanted to lose 24 pounds before the year is over. I don't know if I will do it. I am going to do my best and be happy with the results. I know I am blessed. I am thankful for that.

  I am thinking maybe you gained muscle because you worked so hard and you lost a lot of inches the scale does not know it all. I am proud of you. I am so happy I met you in this challenge.

    Wonderful goals! Finding more time with the Lord will help in all your efforts. 24 lbs in 30 days is ambitious but you can definelty make a dent in that number. I like that you included warmup and caring for your back, being careful is an essential part of this journey! Good Luck with your December!

    24 pounds is pretty ambitious for the 4 remaining weeks, but you might get there by the end of January.

No matter what, you have been an amazing fighter. Stick to your plan and you will do well. We all need to keep a balanced life. For sure it is what God wants for His creatures.

And I must say, you crack me up: "I am going all strong arm on myself.'
