Happy New Year!
I know I’m a little late but they say better late than never 🤷🏼♀️
How many people are wanting to lose weight this year?
Yeah me too! I think I do every year and last year I was okay until the second half of the year. We lost a loved one and things just seemed to spiral downward after that.
I got up and dusted myself off and I’m going to get back on that horse if it is dragging me with just one foot in the saddle.
I found an awesome app, or I think it is. It’s the Peloton digital app. You can try it 30 days free without a credit card which was cool but by day one I was ready to sign up. It has everything I need. Time is no excuse either because they have five min videos too. I like the fun run audio. There’s music in the background and someone cheering you on the whole time.
Still need to work on eating better which is always hard for me. I will do it though!
This getting older is cramping my style a little. I am very thankful to get older but I do not like the aches and pains that come with it. I’m hoping adding exercises will help. I’m used to cardio but I gotta start getting stronger so this year I’m focusing more on exercises that will make my body stronger.
I have also entered into the world of reading glasses. Which I’m not fond of at all. I found myself having to put glasses in my bible case, purse, car, and every room in the house. Now, that’s just for when I wear contacts. If I wear my regular glasses then I just have to raise up my glasses to read up close. Since I can’t fix my eyes, I’m going to work on my body.
I still want to focus on my life with God also. I want to be faithful in prayer and reading scripture. I kinda slacked there at the end of last year too. It was definitely not good for my soul.
In one of my journals it started talking about to go to God with every request. The verse is Hebrews 4-16
The first question was what do you want to ask God but don’t because you think it’s to small. Or what do you want to ask but don’t. This was easy for me. My answer was “I don’t have this problem ” and I don’t. I ask God for anything that is on my heart. From healing someone to bringing my cat home because he’s been gone to long. God wants us to talk to him and I talk to him like my friend. He knows our every thought and care so why not just open up to him and just talk to him.
The struggles are real ❤️
I hope everyone reading this has a great year! Thank you for taking the time out to read these words! God Bless
PS I don’t know about you, but I’m so glad the elves on the shelves are gone. I’m sorry ,I will never understand the concept.
