I just looked at my Facebook profile and have realized that three out of my five last status updates have dealt in some measure with brownies or some other unbelievably unhealthy food.
Granted, there's a baby in my tummy-- but is that really excuse to eat all j-u-n-k?
Unfortunately, I know the answer is no. That sweet, firm voice keeps me reminding me so. Ironically, my husband just opened up his own business, and lo-and-behold, it's a fitness and nutrition company. Ha! Yeahh, I'm so not the poster child. Though I should be.
And then, in good ol' Holy Spirit fashion, I log on to one of my favorite blogs and Courtney is trumpeting and starting a challenge. Granted, it is not only a fitness and health challenge-- but the first week starts off by encouraging us and reminding us that our bodies are temples for the Holy Spirit, that He has given us this physical body as a demonstration and a beginning lesson in stewardship for us.
Eeep! I have failed.
But today, I choose to re-take the test. I choose to join the challenge this way. I may not be able to set a [realistic] goal for weight loss-- ha! --but I can choose to establish healthy goals now so that when this sweet baby makes his arrival, health, fitness and an amazing diet is part of my lifestyle already!
Stay tuned this week as I share my motivation, my goals and my progress! :)
