My Evolution

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Every now and then, our lives are affected by a deep personal challenge. It could be loss of a job, death of a family member, or some situation that just seems to suck the life out of you. That's what my life has been like the past couple of months. When I feel like I have just cleared a hurdle, there is yet another to jump over. I am a strong Christian, and there is not a day that goes by that I don't know that in the end, everything will be ok, and yet lately, I always feel tired, even when I know I have gotten plenty of rest. How do you motivate your body to exercise, when taking care of your daily responsibilities is overwhelming? You don't.

This month I have completed 241 minutes of cardio. In the past, I've done that in 1 week. The fact that we are into the fourth week of the month is sad. But I have a silver lining. This morning, after battling myself to get on the scale, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I have not gained a single pound. I have evolved, and that's good. It means that I am not emotional eating. It means that I make good, conscious choices about what I put into my body.I have not been tracking most days either, so it means that my diet is healthy, and well-balanced. This is a very big victory. Thank you, Lord for every little blessing.

    I just joined this site in order to leave you a message. Somehow (through googling a random question to getting to this page) I have been inspired by your story ... And pictures. I am currently the blob in the bathing suit sitting by the pool and can't wait to be the "after " pic of you too! I'm 50 and like you live in Fl., have teen kids and a husband who wants me to be happy. He also knows that losing weight would do just that. I noticed you're at your goal weight - congratulations - and hope that you continue to post how you're doing on here.
