Okay, it’s time to get serious about this stuff.
I’ve struggled this last 6 weeks. And, I do mean struggle. Five pounds is the total weight loss during this time.
That’s tough to take.
I also logged 51 miles during August.
So, here’s to renewed vigor. I had a chat with God during my Saturday morning run. A good friend is preparing for an adventure and I used the run to prayerfully intercede for her and her friend. Turns out, God had a message for me too.
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.
I hit this scripture during the run on Saturday. I literally had to stop the run and just say, “What? What is it that you want me to do?” God had me turn around, and there was a contractors sign in a neighbor’s yard with this scripture referenced. I looked it up and groaned.
I am straining toward what’s ahead. It doesn’t matter what I’ve done in the past. There are no laurels to rest upon here.
Get up and drag something back to the cave.
So, on that run, I did 5 miles!!! They weren’t pretty. It was slow, ugly and gross.
With that, I lost 0.6 pounds this week. My measurements are pretty much the same – so here’s to a new week.
I wanted to share my journal with you.
What do you do to help keep you focused?
