Today was an absolute Blessing! I have been struggling with my health and weight since I have been having children and I can now see the tunnel. Maybe not the light at the end of the tunnel but I finally feel like I’m heading in the right direction. Almost as long as I’ve been alive, I have been taking care of someone. Today was, for me, an “excuse” to put me first.
I have to admit though, I’m a little intimidated! I entered the contest as kind of a dare. My exact words were, “Okay God, I’m going to enter this contest and try to start working out again. If you give it to me, then I’ll know that this weight thing is what you want me to handle”. My Father knows me so I wasn’t surprised when my husband came home to tell me he ran into a childhood friend who is an aerobics instructor and thinks I should take her class. I started her class the day after I entered the contest.
So in front of me is this overwhelming task to allow someone to help me do something that I have not been able to do. My weight is just a symptom. I’m really looking forward to getting to know the girls and trainers. It’s been my experience that God always puts the right people around you when you’re doing what He wants you to do. I’m looking forward to ALL of us succeeding. With that being said, we all need to remember that no one can beat you except you, but I’m certainly going to try! And I expect nothing less from everyone else. The competitor in me might keep me from making Sweet Green Tea so these training sessions aren’t in vain. This can be a Blessing that can change the course of our lives AT THE VERY LEAST physically. Ima get mine!
