It’s been a long time since I’ve written a blog!
So when I saw this message from God on facebook yesterday it struck a chord with me.
On this day, God wants you to know
… that it’s never too late to get back on track. Never has anyone gone so far on the wrong path that they cannot return to the right one. Never has anyone become so wayward that they cannot benefit from the true light.
Where have I been the last 14 days? Yes it’s been two weeks since my last blog – unbelievable!
For one… Over a year ago I volunteered to help plan our 30-Year High School Reunion…so we (the committee) spent every spare moment last week preparing for the big event which was held this past weekend. Then of course I spent the weekend at the reunion. The last two days? Well I spent that time recovering and trying to get myself back on track. (All well worth the fun I had at the reunion!)
I’ve definitely gained a few pounds over the last several weeks which is very frustrating! All I can do is do what I know and get my butt in gear… oh and get my nutrition back in check too. I really didn’t miss much gym time, except for the weekend. I took Friday, Saturday, and Sunday off. I was back to twofers the last two days (Monday and Tuesday). I’ll make it to the gym two times today too.
For two… my friends are already aware of this…but I’ve been dating someone for a few months now. Originally dating did not impact my fitness and nutrition efforts… but when you add on the girls’ weekend (when my friends were visiting several weeks ago), a few other out of town visitors (which added more evenings of cocktails), and the reunion prep and event… I desperately need to get myself back on track.
I attribute my newly found dating life to my new found wellness. Not just my fitness but the confidence and satisfaction that comes with being in control and looking and feeling better. I want to make sure that I continue to experience these benefits (happiness, confidence, etc.) of winning the fitbattle. So it’s essential that I get back on track now that I won’t be as distracted.
Does life get it the way of your (my) fitbattle? Yes…of course it does! It’s not the end of the world…a few pounds found…but I need to stop the madness and make sure these few pounds don’t end up being several pounds.
Does dating complicate the fitbattle? Maybe. I’ve tried not to be as rigid with my diet. This is not just good for my new found relationship but also for my relationships with my friends and family who have found me a bit hard to take (to say the least) at times. I’m sure I can find a way to live in the real world, lose the extra pounds and then maintain a healthy weight.
The good news (or should I say “God” news)… “it’s never too late to get back on track.” I’m pretty sure that the facebook message from God wasn’t really referring to my wellness and there are definitely some other areas of my life that could use a little tweaking, but I’m gonna focus on my fitbattle this week.
Until tomorrow! Kathi
