Slow going but going. That is how the turtle wins right?! UGH! I do feel like a turtle. I am realizing that my speed bump wasn't just a bump but a hole, that has affected not only my physical movement but also my mental movement. What do I mean? Well before my back decided to freak out on me I mentally was pushing forward no matter what. But since my back has gotten better my mental "push forward don't give up" thought process just has not been all that great. I literally am having to "be PERSISTENT" in pushing forward. I have to remind myself to go work out and not just work out (do as little as possible) but really WORKOUT (push through the pain). The pain I am talking about isn't pain caused by injury but pain caused by a good work out.

For the last few years I have chosen a word to focus on and this year my word is:
The root word of persistence is persist. One meaning of persist is to go on resolutely or stubbornly in spite of opposition. The origin of the word according to Merriam-Webster...
Latin persistere, from per- + sistere to take a stand, stand firm
I love that! "To take a stand, stand firm!" Yep that is what I am gonna do this year with the journey to a healthy life spiritually and physically - healthy weight. I shall reach my goals and strive towards what God has for me personally and as a family.
What is your word of focus for the year?
