Peak 313 Wk 2 Wrap up and new goals.

Sunday, September 23, 2012

I am wrapping up my second week in the Living and Active 5 week challenge hosted by Peak 313.com. I am happy to say that I accomplished all of the posted goals. We are challenged each week to memorize a scripture. This week's scripture came from

Matthew 6: 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

I love that verse because it reminds me that I am to daily trust God for His provision for my life. This health journey has proven to be a daily battle especially as I lay my addiction to sugar on the Altar each day. Praise God, I feel like I am not craving as much due to prayer and strength to make wiser choices.

We are also encouraged to workout 4 times a week for a minimum of 25 minutes. I worked out each day this week and I feel great. I am noticing a difference in my clothes although I am only down 1 pound on the scale. I will take every loss and count it as a victory. Having more energy and a calm demeanor far outweighs seeing a big loss on the scale.

Speaking of the scale, I have decided to put it away for a while. I have allowed it to be way too important and if I am not careful it will dictate what mood that I will be in for the day. emoticon I will continue to make healthy choices even beyond this challenge, exercise and daily ask for strength. My clothing will give me an indication of whether I am making progress or not. I will also measure each month as a way to track changes in my body.

I have been thinking of my goals as September comes to an end and October is approaching. I really want to continue to workout six days a week. However, I plan to either increase my workout time or get in 2 workouts a day a couple times a week. My nutrition goals are to continue eating more fruits and veggies than starchy carbs and quick processed foods. This will be a challenge but I can do it. I hope to give the tracker a workout this week emoticon . It helps to know how I am doing and it keeps me accountable.

I am becoming a woman who is active and living a life that I pray serves others and brings glory to my creator God. Thanks for stopping by if you took time out to read my ramblings. God Bless! emoticon
