Didn't work out yesterday, got feeling sick with a low grade fever. Ended up going to bed early and sleeping in. I turned off my alarm so I wouldn't have to get up super early. Ended up staying in bed till 0815!!
I'm going to work out today, darnit! I was feeling awful yesterday, and have a sore throat today, but am feeling better. I have renewed motivation. This may sound strange, but I have this friend who has always weighed more than me... and well she should she's like a foot taller than me! But I've always been the skinnier one. She weighed over 300 pounds last time I saw her... She took up metal detecting as a hobby and has lost 40 pounds! And part of me is going, I can't let her weigh less than me, I have to start losing weight. I'm happy for her having lost the weight, I truly am, but am disgusted with myself for not having lost any weight yet, it's been almost a month since I've started, but I've not been working out. I will work out today!
I'm going to start watching Biggest Loser for motivation again. When I used to watch it I'd get so motivated, I'd go work out right after watching it. What could be more motivating!? My girls want to watch it with me, and I'm not sure about that, but I think I will let them, help them see how important staying in shape is.
I finally finished my purse!! I started it months ago, got it almost finished, and then just couldn't bring myself to finish it. Don't know why, but it has just been sitting there for months. So I finally pulled it out and finished it! It's called Garden Scene, and I can't wait for spring, that is when I will use it.
This verse is found often in the book I'm reading What Are You Afraid Of? by Dr. David Jeremiah. Only the last bit is 'sound mind'. I really like the book so far, and it has been quite comforting. As someone who suffers from anxiety, it is hard to hear 'don't be afraid'. But the book is more than just saying 'don't be afraid' it explains why we should not fear. God is in charge of everything, and everything has a reason, even if we don't see it. Nothing comes to pass that is not of God's design. But as Paul says in Romans 8, our present suffering is nothing compared to the glory that is to be revealed to us. God has something so much greater in store for us
