My week has been ok, I've been under my calories on all days, but I have only done some form of exercise once this week.
My weight today is the same as saturday.
I've not been online much to comment, but plan to get caught up on blog reading and encouraging today!
Did you know that alot of the things we have, is because we put a lot of time and energy in to get it? If you've got a beautiful garden, you've put time and energy into it. If you sew beautiful clothing, time and effort at the sewing mashine. Now if you've got tons of "amazing" TV trivia stored in your brain, time and effort spent watching TV. Make a nutritious meal - or not - still requires time and effort.
We don't get things by wishing and desiring or hoping for them, no magic. Even when someone gives us something, a gift, it has still required time and effort on that persons part.
For me, I've been unhappy about my weight since I was a teen. Not many knew that I hated my body. But all I ever did was wish and hope I'd wake up beautiful one day. But all my wishing and hoping, yes, even my praying was useless in changing my body. Why? Because I didn't put in the time and effort necessary to change it.
"Isn't that the way it is with many things in life... we want the results, but have no desire to put in the work required?" Lysa TerKeurst Made to CraveOur wishes and dreams really don't give us much hope until we do something that takes us in that direction. Dream vacation starts becoming a reality when we've put the first money into that savings account, and the hope grows with each penny you invest in it.
My quote for the week is not a quote but rather a string of words I want to put into action today! And then tomorrow. And then the next day! Anyone care to add to the list?
