Today I decided that I have to take control of my weight again. I haven't gained any weight lately. Thank you Lord God. But, I haven't been exercising or eatting like I should. I was thinking about joining OneLife Fitness. But after carefully thinking about it, I have decided not to join. My reasons are several. It's about a 15 minute drive, with no traffic at 5am. I have several other commitments that may keep me from being able to attend the classes in the evenings. (which is why I want to join) So I don't want to throw good money towards a bad situation. So this morning I got up and started to exercise again. I found a workout on demand television that actually got me going, then I ran for a mile on the treadmill. Today was suppose to be my first day of eatting healthier again. But, I forgot that I had to work at a different location today, which meant that I couldn't bring lunch from home because I had no where to store it. So needless to say, I hit the vending machine, and bought a 510 calorie honey bun. Also, I had to buy lunch. I know I should have made a better decision, but since I don't often eat at chic-fil-a, I thought I would treat myself to the chicken salad sandwhich and waffle fries. I will be paying for this in the end, I know. But, I plan on getting it together for day One on tomorrow morning. I know I haven't lost any of the weight that I should have for the challenge, but I want to at least make it to 10 pounds lost by my birthday...which happens to be towards the end of next month. I was in a spinning class on Tuesday and notice a sign on the wall that said "Don't just go through the motions, give it 100%." I think that's what I have been doing during this whole challenge for dropping 35 pounds. I have been just going through the motions. Blaming everything and everybody for me not being able to break this rut I am in. I have made an accomplishment of losing 23 pounds since July 2011. But that is not where I want to stay. Yes I know that I am not defined by my pant size, but I want to be in a better pant size to define how I stick to a commitment. To my buddies in the challenge, I offer my apologies for not keeping motivated. I thank you Sanet for giving me your opinions and passing on ideas of encouragement. You have been a great buddy. Today is the day to cease the moment! I will not let my past define my future. I am a child of God and I am blessed. He shows me mercy everyday and I am so grateful for His love and devotion to me. I bless Your name Father and I lift You up high in all the earth. You are worthy to be praised! This is my beginning and I am thankful for it.
