It is so hard to get back into swing of things. Due to my surgery, I’ve not exercised in three weeks and I’ve not been getting up early. Needless to say, I’m dragging this morning. I would love to go back to bed and sleep for the additional two hours before I have to get ready for work. If I did that, however, I wouldn’t have time to exercise before I go to work or write this blog. And both of those things are important to me.
If I take the first few hours of my day for me, then the rest of my day just goes better. I love the way exercising makes me feel. When I start my day feeling accomplished, strong, and calm then I'm happier and in a better mood all day.
While I believe God can heal our bodies, I also believe that He wants us to do the best that we can to take care of ourselves. When I take the time to eat healthy, drink enough water, start my day with Shakeology, exercise, and prayer, then I feel so much better. The opposite is true for when I eat unhealthy food, skip my workouts, and forget to pray. On those days, I feel just feel bad, and the feeling usually stays with me all day.
In order to have more good days, I try to develop better habits and make them part of my daily routine. When I do the same things over and over, then they become a habit and are a part of my routine. Then, I don’t forget to do them.
They say it takes 21 days to form a new habit, and in 21 days we can also destroy our good habits. Before my surgery, I was doing so well, and now I feel as if I am starting over. Even though I enjoyed sleeping in and getting some extra sleep, I am also so grateful for the health to start working out again.
Instead of beating myself up, I am looking at this as the first day to my new journey. Would you like to start with me? We can do this together.
|Because I needed the reminder.|
Have a wonderful day!
