If God is for us...

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

It's been 2 1/2 months since my last blog. I'd love to say that I was crazy busy and didn't have time, but truth be told- we all have time. The good news is that I've still been working on my goals. The whole month of January I did a bootcamp! Some days I went to both morning and evening session, and it paid off! I lost 10 inches and 7 pounds last month. Doesn't sound like a lot, but if you consider the fact that my diet was "off" thru most of the month, it's pretty impressive. The bootcamp was thru P31 Fitness, and its fitness fueled by God, based on the Proverbs 31 woman. There are daily and weekly scriptures, along with various challenges that are physical, mental, spiritual, ect. I pushed myself to all kinds of new limits! I run farther and faster than I did. Doubled the number of push ups I can do and can now do them with much better form! Same thing with my sit ups. This was not a walk in the park- this was some serious sweating and pushing myself a little farther each time, even though I felt like I was about to pass out and hit the floor! I was so motivated by all of the hard work and how far I came in those 4 weeks, that I signed up for the regular classes. Last week our daily challenges were to do 2 mins of supermans each night and to spend 10 minutes with God each day. Shamefully, I admit that for the first couple of days I "didn't have time", but it the middle of the week I started making time. I found that if I took that 10 minutes when I first rolled out of bed- my day went so much smoother. It didn't put me behind or have me rushing. For the first time in a couple of months I was still long enough to receive God's blessings, which is all I needed to start setting my priorities back where they belong. I'm back on a clean diet, continuing with my fitness classes, and actually enjoying things again. Is my life perfect right now? Absolutely not! My house is a mess (today's chore), my oldest son just got in huge trouble at school, my parents called and said they're headed to Salt Lake City and they need me to pack up their house and put it all in storage, work is crazy... but I'm at peace. It will all get taken care of, and with me staying on track the entire time. There is time in the day for everything we NEED to do. We all get 24 hours- it's just a matter of priority on how we will spend those hours. How can I be so confident? Simply because I trust God, and if God is for us- then who could ever be against us?

Psalm 121:2 My help comes from the Lord...
