Has It Really Been Fourteen Weeks? October 27, 2017

So I went back to my last post I did on my health journey and I can’t believe I am finishing week fourteen. Wow.

I shouldn’t be surprised, the results have shown themselves for me. Faithful Workouts works, no doubt about it.

The crazy part is I weigh only about five pounds less than I did a couple of years ago but I am down 2-3 sizes (depending on the style). That has to be because of working out and how it is reshaping my body. I haven’t been this size since early in my marriage.

The thing I am still loving about Faithful Workouts is the fact that I have a daily reminder to keep this focused on God and Him getting the glory, not me.

Here is the thing I am discovering: this isn’t just something I’m doing until I get to a certain weight, I am about where I want to be. No. This is about a new lifestyle. When people ask about a diet I say, “This isn’t a diet, it’s a lifestyle.” My husband makes fun of me for this…all in love, of course.

If it isn’t something I can maintain for the rest of my life then I will slowly put the weight back on. What I am doing I can do forever. I don’t feel deprived, I feel revived. I am putting good things into my body and it feels good. Things God created for us to enjoy. Yes, it takes A LOT more time and effort to cook and there are days I wish I could open a box of something frozen and throw it in the oven, but in the long run it is worth it.

And yes, I still eat bad once in a while. I would say once a week I eat a meal or a snack that is totally bad for me. But I don’t care because I know the rest of the days of the week I am making wise choices.
