Time for a mid-week update
I have such a hard time doing my blog posts is one session… kids interrupting. Let’s see how it goes today! J
I joined a gym class on Monday! It’s basically the class I was at before, but at the moment they are only offering advanced classes (I used to go to beginners). I got there early so I was able to talk to the instructor bout my back and tailbone issue. But I was able to do all the exercises, just not all the reps! Felt good! I signed up for 2 nights a week for January. So I will be obligated to go. The only dark spot was exercising next to what seemed to be an anorexic woman. At first I was envious of her body, and then I felt sorry for her – don’t know why.
And I've also started the C25K program again. Day 1 and I did it all!!! I'm still sore so I'm not sure how day 2 will go, I'll do my best!
As far as eating is concerned… I’ve stayed under my recommended calories every day. I track with My Fitness Pal. I don’t always find the food I’m looking for so at times I do need to take what I think is closest. I got my digital food scale out again, and it is helping me stay accurate with the amount I’m eating.
Today, while feeling the midmorning craving for food, I had fruit.
And speaking of cravings…
This book is asking me to take an honest look at why I turn to food. And boy, that makes me feel uncomfortable.
The process of getting healthy has to be about more than just losing weight and focusing on ourselves. It’s not about adjusting our diets and hoping for good physical results. It’s about recalibrating our souls so that we want to change for the right reasons. I’ve realized that a healthy eating plan can be one of the most significant spiritual journeys I’d ever dared to take with God.So, I know, and have known for a long time, that I need to really ask myself some deep questions. And it scares me.
What are all the excuses for? Why don’t I want to be attractive? What is stopping me from changing? Why can’t I stay focused?
So I'll be doing some soul searching along this journey as well.
Stay focused my friends!
And yes, I was interrupted! Sigh!
