Day 28 January 28, 2011

 I’ve been working 14 hour days (my usual) and I’m tired. My feet hurt because I’ve been walking around the hospital all night. I’m wondering how am I going to push through tonight.
 
I’m not even thinking about exercising or eating healthy. I just want to sit down then lay down.
When I think about it, that’s probably how I got big. Over time, I focused more on work and my external responsibilities and put my health further down on the list-if it made the list at all.
 
I ate, slept and worked. For years. One day I looked at myself in the store mirror and gasped. Who was that person? That person was me- is me.
You know I could really give myself a pass tonight and say I’m too tired to do anything like exercise when I leave work. But I’ve heard all my excuses before and I hate hearing myself say them. I don’t want to lie to myself anymore. I want to lose weight. As tired as I am, I will do my workout and eat healthy meals today.
 
I am important to me. I deserve to have the best health and the best life I can give myself. Today I will take another step towards having that life.
 
Prayer: God, help my mind and spirit stay strong even as my body aches and cries for rest.

Day 27 January 27, 2011

“When you get right down to the root of the meaning of the word ‘succeed’, you find it simply means to follow through.” –

                                                        F.W. Nichol

Let me ask you something, do you still remember your New Year’s resolution from last year? Did you accomplish that goal? Can you remember your New Year’s resolution from earlier this month??

We have to stay focused on what we say we want out of life. If we don’t remember what we want, how are we going to get it? We have to keep our goals in front of us. We must keep our eyes on the prize. What is your prize?? Claim it for yourself and hold on to it until you have it.

Prayer: God, help me to keep my eyes on my prize.

“For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice. No paper currency, no promises to pay, but the goal of real service.” –

                                                                    John Burroughs

I think for a long time, I’ve wanted other people to do the work of my weight loss. I think I thought if I’m paying you to help me lose weight, then lose my weight for me. I logically knew that I had to do the exercise and healthy eating but when the rubber hits the road, I honestly can say, I wanted someone else to do the work for me. Am I the only one who feels/felt like this???

If you don’t put the time in and do your own work, the only thing you will succeed in achieving, is being frustrated. You waste so much time. And for what??  You and I both know we are able to do what we need to do to lose our weight. Let’s do it.

Prayer: God, show me how to keep on trying despite the pain, frustration and my impatience.
