2. 30 Minutes of Walking/Jogging for 30 Days
Today I went to the gym with my friend, Krystal. I am extremely thrilled that Krystal has finally moved back to San Antonio!!
I wrote about her in a blog here
once and she also has her own blog called Sugar Iz Crack
To be honest, Krystal has become an inspiration to me now because she has done so well and I think having her back in San Antonio will help get me remotivated!
(On a sidenote, just now my auto correct tried to turn the word REmotivated into DEmotivated! Even the auto correct is out to get me sometimes! LOL)
SO….Krystal came with me to Planet Fitness today and got signed up.
I upgraded to the black card which means we get to use the tanning bed (never done THAT before) and the massage chairs. Oooh la la! I can FIT in those now!!!
It’s going to be awesome having a gym workout buddy!
Today we did 2 miles on the treadmill
Then we did 1 minute on some machine of which I am unsure about. It felt like it was making us do high knees. It was a butt kicker! We are going to work on that a little at a time!!
We also did 5 minutes on the elliptical and plan to add a little at a time to that every day too.
Look at Krystal going so fast she’s a blur!!
AND it appears I sweat more when I have someone with me!!
It was fun having someone to work out with. It’s nice to have someone other than myself to talk to LOL
I mean….I do have GREAT conversations with myself and all of my various personalities…but it’s still nice to have outside input 😉
We followed this up with our shakes
AND a pedicure as a reward for our first workout in the gym together! We can both fit in pedicure chairs. WOO HOOO!!!
3. 30 Minutes of Bible Study for 30 Days
So yesterday I studied this verse in Romans
”…for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”
I was still thinking about that today.
About Peace and how when my focus gets OFF the food, it has time to actually focus in on what brings me true peace
Peace is something that has often felt elusive to me.
Something I strive for and can’t always obtain
I struggle with anxiety and depression at various times in my life
And these episodes cause me to have a true lack of peace
Admittedly much of the time that I worry about things it is a result of my own mind going in circles
Rather than real problems, it may just be things I tend to overanalyze
But then there are the things that are real solid reasons to worry
Or better yet…the situations I CREATE that cause me to worry
Regardless of how I end up there….
It steals my peace
So I looked up the biblical definition of Peace in a Bible Dictionary
And it was interesting because it looked at it from 4 viewpoints
Often we think of peace as simply being content or tranquil
But the biblical definition of peace has the Hebrew root ‘slm’
That means “to be complete” which is a lot more than just content
The noun itself has different facets to it which mean different things
There is “salon” which means a “wholeness of life or body” as in your health
Now THAT is something a person seeking weight loss and fitness looks for!!
It also means to be at harmony and without conflict
Oh how I would love not to be conflicted!!
Then there is also the meaning of “prosperity and success”
Yes we need a lot of that as we move from 30 seconds and up in our workouts!
And finally it means VICTORY over our enemies
An absence of war
Well for me…this life IS war
War with cupcakes and chips and the desire to stay in bed instead of work out
I had no idea the word “PEACE” could mean so much!!
I intend to seek more of THAT!
