I recently came to a realization that with everything that has been going on in my life, I have been gaining quite a bit of weight! It has been mentioned by a person or two that feels they know me well enough to say so. When I decided to start doing something about it, I stepped on the scale to get a base starting point. Could that be right? Could I have really let myself get 80 pounds overweight?
This really does bring me back to the point of striving for balance in my life. God wants our praise and love, but physical fitness is important too. We shouldn't be neglecting our own health. Now, I'm not saying that I couldn't do with cutting back on the snacks, but all of my attention has been focused on everything but diet and exercise.
Right now, I have been going through a couple of rough weeks of sickness, fatigue, and borderline depression. To an extent I have even been neglecting my prayer life. In an effort to reestablish some balance and peace in my life, I am starting to focus some on losing weight. Now that I have brought some new routines in, its time to filter in the things I have been doing and try to make everything balance out. I know it will only work if I allow Him to take the wheel back.
