I haven't been writing and boy have I been struggling this last week. Struggling with my weight fluctuation up and down and with what I am eating. UGH!!! Gotta get my focus back! On a happy note I have still continued to work out every day and have even gotten back to riding my stationary bike. Of which I am sure those that even read this find exciting. HA! Actually I am very excited about it because it feel great to be able to ride again. Now I just have to pace myself as to not injure my ankle again.
I have worked myself back up from 15 mins. to 35 mins. a day. I try to do 15-20 mins. one day and the next 30-35 mins. trying to take it easy on the ankle. Goal is to get back to 35-45 mins. every day but Sundays. Sunday is my day off from exercising and I am thinking I may allow myself that day to also just eat what I want within reason. Gotta think on that one for a while though.
As a Christian I believe in fasting periodically. It's a way of getting closer to God, sacrificing for Him and to get my focus back. Fasting can be used for a variety of spiritual things as well as physical. I am really thinking about doing a 3-5 day fast where I only drink liquids. I need to gain control of how and what I am eating. I need to get my focus back and break the stinkin' thinkin' again. Still praying about it but think this might be a perfect time to do this. Saturday through Wednesday and then break the fast on Thanksgiving Day. Hmmm.....we'll see! Trusting God to show me His plan with this.
