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.
