See A Goal Met And Setting New Heights

Ellen and I are coming up on the first goal of our new lifestyle change. This Friday marks one month of consistent exercise. We’ve done some kind of cardio exercise for at least thirty minutes a day at least five days a week. It is awesome to see a goal set and actually made for a change. If nothing else, I’ve learned that it really is within me that I CAN do this. I just have to make up my mind.

The next step begins Monday. We add strength training twice a week to our weekly exercise and the really hard part–changing eating habits. According to our plan we have to give up whatever our main struggle with food is. We’ve both agreed that our main struggle is sugar and junk foods. They have to go.

What’s great about this is, I can now walk up my steps at home and not feel worn completely out.  I don’t see any results in the mirror yet, but it’s going to come.

Our commitment is one day at a time. We are trying to set monthly goals, but you can’t live tomorrow today and for today, we are doing great with this. Please keep praying for us.

    Hang in there! I’m having trouble getting back in a routine after moving. Maybe your commitment will encourage me!

    God bless you and Ellen on your journey. The exercise will help but you’ll see great results once you start adding the “eating” change. Keep it up.

    That is great!

    Wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your lesson @ Shoals Wednesday night. We ran errands all day today and listened to the new P&W music in the car. THANKS!!!!! Just a passing thought on the church as a hospital….a lot of times I think it is treated as a retirement home and maybe instead it should be looked at not as just any hospital but as a MASH unit. Get in take care of the trauma of life and that get back into the battle field.

    I’ll be the lone, dissenting voice. You want to give up sugar and junk food? NO!! DON’T DO IT!!! Giving up sugar and junk food will only cause you to be healthier when you eventually die. Is it really worth it? 🙂

    Great to see you and Ellen. We’re praying for Danielle.

    For some real fun while losing weight look into Zumba classes in your area.
