The Simple Diet Journal #18 -- Nesting and No Fear

Monday, April 16, 2012

Hi there! Today I will have to have a surgery, so all weekend I've been in super clean mode -- deep cleaning the bathroom, my bedroom -- washing and changing everybody's sheets -- washing light fixtures in the hallways -- I was at it. I had hoped to get in one really intense workout, but that didn't happen -- although I think that 8 hours of cleaning actually might count :-). Feels so good to know that these things are all clean.

This week marks the beginning of Week 11 on the Simple Diet. I am still constantly thankful that I found out about it -- and have been able to keep going. So many unexpected joys along the way.

Exercise has become one of my joys and passions over the last month, so when I heard that I will have to take it easy for a bit -- part of me was bummed, part of me was a tiny bit worried about how this would impact my momentum (not just in terms of weight loss, but in terms of mindset and because I've been on a roll).

But, that feeling didn't last very long -- faced it and decided -- okay -- it's a tiny speed bump that I just have to slow down for, but my car is still driving forward on this course! I remembered that well-known verse -- God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of love, power, and sound mind (or self control) -- and with that in my pocket and my heart, I'm cruising -- even if it might mean 1 mph for a short bit.

Have a wonderful day!

Smiles for you . . .

Peace, Health, and Living Fully No Matter What!

    2 Timothy 1:7 is one of my favorites. I pray that your surgery goes well. I know you're bummed about not exercising but I know you will continue to be successful while healing because your head, heart & spirit are in the right place. Remember Philippians 4:13: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. These trials are only a test so that you can have a great testimony. emoticon
