My NEW Hobby…
Well, ONE of my new hobbies – I guess you could say.
I have this new-found love for checking out grocery stores. I love searching out new whole foods and organic stores when we travel outside of our area… just to see what goodness they have to offer, that I can’t get at home.
It’s been fun to check out the gluten-free sections (obviously), but it’s more than that… there are loads of products I’ve just never heard of and it’s just plain FUN to me.
It’s also super encouraging to see so many other people my age – and all ages for that matter, taking back our health in this country.
While I’m sure if you people watch much, the trend for the older people is… “Oh it’s too late, why bother changing now?” and sometimes the younger people have the attitude that they’re young and going to live it up… so they don’t bother either? Whatever the thought process is, there is a majority of over weight people in this country who needs information, and encouragement. I was one of them.
Personally, I don’t look down at over weight people and think… wow, that’s awful. I think wow… they could feel so much better, I WISH I could help them!! (But we have to be careful poking out heads in areas we’re not wanted!) Look for ways to encourage!
I’m here to remind you that it doesn’t matter WHAT age you are, the time to be healthy is NOW. Why would you want to feel poorly, when there is opportunity to feel well? Why would you want to ignore God’s call to take care of the very temple that holds His Spirit?
Exactly. You wouldn’t!
So, let me motivate you today with my recent struggle…
I had a procedure a few weeks ago, and I’ve been struggling to NOT work out. I’ve been trying to keep things light, and be at peace with not over doing it… but it’s been tough! I miss my daily release of stress and sweating it out!
TODAY was the first day that I was able to bust out and do an hour-long BOB workout again! I did Super Strength! Yea!!! I am so happy!
After the first 10 minutes, I was thinking… maybe I shouldn’t have chosen this one! Not because I was over doing it, just because I knew it was going to be tough, and sometimes I have this “oh no, I know what’s coming…” moment. (And actually my daughter chose it, she was working out with me) But the last 20-30 minutes, I was really glad that we stuck it out – and did it!
I know you feel great after you get that workout in… so GET AFTER IT! 🙂 Move more, eat less!
“Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly.
For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.”
