(Day 15) Beginning The Third Week of My Journey

Here we are at the beginning of the third week and I neglected to do my weigh-in yesterday! I was so focused on what the Lord was saying to me about balance and distractions that I didn’t realize that it was time for my weigh-in update yesterday. It happens though. Life happens, we shift our to do lists forward to the next day multiple times and sometimes we never get back to those things. Anyway, I was a little nervous getting that scale out this morning because if you have been following me since the beginning of this month you know that days 8-12 got away from me. I didn’t plan well and the scale actually reflects the fruit of those days. So here we go:

So as you can see I am up 5.2 lbs but I am still down 4.2 lbs from my original weight. Well that just tells me that I need to really put into practice the things I have been talking about over the past three days as I move into week three. I have some goals for the week that I am going to implement to help move toward my main goals.

  1. My total daily step count goal is to reach 5000 steps for 6 of the next 7 days.
  2. Plan my meals ahead of time and do my best to stick to the plan
  3. Grace, grace, grace

In the past I have started this journey with great initial results and then when the results were not optimal I would abandon ship or fall into a heavy binge and well you can see where I’m going with this. This morning I have a different mindset though and during my morning talk with my accountability partner I said this: “We have to stop looking so hard at the goal and begin to enjoy the process.” I ministered to myself there and immediately wrote it down because it really is true. So I am going to enjoy the process of allowing the Lord to guide me every day in working through transforming my temple. I am the temple of the Holy Spirit and unless I am listening to Him tell me how to re-build and transform, well I may as well quit right now. It’s not about me. Grace, grace, grace. Thank You Lord for grace.

Have a great day!
