It’s Beyond Me

Almost one and a half months into the new year (Thank you Nicki), how is your health/fitness goals going?  Mine are going, eh.  I believe that is the technical term for “it could be going better”.

At the beginning of all this, way, way back in October, I was gun-ho.  Ready to whip this fat into submission.  Ready to show myself, my family and the whole world just what Christi is made of.  Results?  A whole lot of hot air.  Somehow between illnesses and holidays, I have fizzled out.

Yes, I have fizzled.  I am only marginally closer to my goal than I was in October.  I am still searching for myself.

I am ok with this.  Really, I am.

Because something occurred to me Sunday as I drove into town.  It is something I have talked about before.

I have to give it to the Lord.  And I don’t mean just say I am going to, but I have to actually trust Him. 

Yes, I will have to put in hard work.

Yes, I will still have to count calories.

Yes, I will still have to exercise.

Just like everything else I have ever tried to control and failed at, once I stopped with myself and put my faith and trust in the Lord, those problems always seem to right themselves.  Just as soon as I stop over thinking and trying to control them.

I realize that faith and religion can be controversial.  I am not here to force my beliefs on anyone.  I am here to find something that works for me. 

And, the Lord has NEVER failed me.

    Yes, you are right—trust God with it all and keep up your end doing the “hard” work and it will work out. I am praying for you! I am like you—gotta get back to working out and all. I have totally ditched sodas now though which is a huge step!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So happy about that!!!!!!!!!! 😀 The last one I drank actually made me feel sick and that was over 2 weeks ago—I had been a week or so without sodas before that day. Now just trying hard to eat better and watch portions and I am getting that under control for the most part now. Now to get back to exercising. WE CAN DO IT girl! I know I fizzled too. I really want so bad to be healthier now though so you and I gotta support each other (FB and chats hopefully at least once a week to check up on each other). I am hoping by doing that with you (if you can) it will hold me a bit more accountable. 😀 Love ya Christi!
