If you haven't read yesterday's post - start here.
I must have been so moved yesterday by God's grace that I couldn't shut my head off last night - I stayed up until well after 2 thinking... tossing and turning. Then up again at 5 to get the week started.
I did really well with my eating today - I managed to keep myself away from Starbucks - on a day when caffeine would have really made all the difference... but God put a big line of cars in the drive thru - and I took it as a sign that I needed to just push on.
My calorie count is within my range, and I'm happy with it - I did have some hunger issues this afternoon, but I made the best choices I could and kept on moving.
I got all my water in today, which I think is a big step in the right direction - it certainly is the first thing to go when I start falling off the wagon.
My workout today was less than desirable, but I'm not going to beat myself up about it - I did the best I could, fought through the pain, and stuck with it for 30 minutes. I burned 220 calories, and normally I'd fight for 300+ calories... but the pain was too much for me today.
I see it as progress in that at least I was able to do the things on my list from yesterday, and even though I didn't do them to the best humanly possible - but if we started everything doing the best that human can possibly do... we wouldn't have anywhere to challenge ourselves to grow, right?
I started off my day this morning at the office by listening to Never Let Go a few dozen times - I hope that the words to that song stay fresh in my mind for many days and weeks to come.
Now my friends, I must take my bleary eyed self to bed.
keep at it girl!ReplyDelete
Good job, Kim!ReplyDelete
Starting over always works! We all have those moments where we need to get back on the wagon. For me, I have not seen the gym in four days, which is unheard of for me, so I am back there today...and after four days, it's gonna hurt.ReplyDelete
Keep it up!
God is good and strong and merciful and graceful - you are on an eternal journey that has more meaning than anything the earth could relate to you - your heart is open to God's voice and you will no doubt hear Him often - praying for you.ReplyDelete
