"Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come" (1Timothyï¿½4:7-8)
"Jesus answered, 'The most important [commandment] is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength'" (Mark 12:29-30).
About a 2. I drove to the gym today in terrible traffic, only to get there and have the kids room closed. Then, went food shopping (bought lots of fruits/veggies), got home and slipped on a patch of ice and slammed my knee. I said, forget it! I shouldnt' have, but I did. So, gotta up the motivation today! There's still time!
I'm actually around a 2 today. I've joined a gym in January and went from a very sedentary lifestyle to working out 1.5 to 2 hours 5-6 days a week. I've also been very carefully improving my diet, which I'd been doing for over a year. I've lost no weight the last 4 weeks and am frustrated. I'm working on increasing my calories which is what spark recommends-I'm going to give it 2 weeks with the increased calories and see if that helps. Right now tho-frustrating! I get that my fat is turning to muscle which is heavier but doesn't change my frustration. Getting measured tomorrow-hopefully I'll see good changes in inches.
"Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results. "
