Why lose weight and get fit?

Monday, September 03, 2012

Yes...another Spark Coach assignment. Why do I want to lose weight and get fit. There is of course a certain amount of vanity involved. I have a pair of size 10 jeans in my closet I really want to wear again. But deeper than that...I am just tired of being tired. It seems like no matter how much I sleep I am always tired. Just making it through the basic day is a struggle, without trying to do any of the extras I would like to do. I want to be able to go hiking and rock climbing with my son, I want to volunteer to help at church and maybe even do a short term mission trip again, but I am always so tired I just can't imagine how I would manage those things. The first thing to do is to lose the weight and get fit, but while I work on that I am also working on dealing with stress better as that is another contributing factor to being tired. I am also starting to just do some of the activities I want to do. I volunteered yesterday to help at a conference our church is hosting on 9/29. I know God will help me get through the weekend.
