Been doing some thinking...

Still going to the gym and brother, it's that time of year! Every treadmill and elliptical is full, the weights are in use, and the machines taken. New Year's Resolutions in full force! I've been going consistently this past year and this January thing is a new experience for me. Trainer Patrick says it will slow down after Valentine's Day. :-)

Anyway, the thinking part. For the first time in a long time, I weigh less than I did this time last year. That is exciting! What's got me thinking is how much time I didn't invest in doing better.

A little before and during...Adrian is journeying, too. 

This year passed so quickly and although I have made changes, I have also allowed myself seasons of laziness. Times where I ate whatever I wanted and decided to sit on the couch instead of moving. I know this will happen and it's ok but I need to let this become something I choose actively, not just because I'm being lazy.

Life changes are hard. I was watching the Biggest Loser and when the doctor was talking to them about uncontrolled diabetes, fatty livers, heart stopping cholesterol,  blocked arteries and such, I felt blessed to know that I'm not there...yet. 

Thank you God for preserving my health for me in spite of me. 

BUT...I don't want to presume upon His great goodness to continue to do so in light of my absolute lack of care of myself. I feel convicted to pursue God's plan for my health. Shifts my whole perspective.  

It is getting better and it will continue to do so. Even if I have to become a morning person.
