As I have said before, the daily devotions are completely changing the course in which my day takes. Ok, maybe not the course, but my outlook on the day. That's what I want to say. However, a chapter like today comes along and challenges me. The passages from 2 Peter 2 are challenging. I can say I believe and know, the Lord will deliver the righteous and is faithful to watch over them and protect them from those after their own gain. The rest of the Scriptures I don't know what to do with. I realize the Words are a compassionate warning, however, I read them and feel such judgment for people doing wrong. This makes me uncomfortable. I read these words and see how many people can be turned away from the Bible, and Jesus, even though there are many Scriptures pointing to the Love of God. Honestly, I am still wrestling with this one today, but I am grateful for the nugget I have.
Speaking of wrestling, I am also wrestling with the decision to go public with my journey for the next year. I am second guessing myself. Wondering if it really even matters if anyone else in the world knows. I do believe sharing will help others who also would like to establish holistic balance in their lives and undergo transformation. I know it is helping me be consistent with my nutritional choices, as well as be more consistent with my workouts. Perhaps it is the fact that I am getting so caught up with all the numbers and gadgets I have encountered in the past couple weeks, that come along with having a public blog. Tools that are designed to help me connect with others, somewhat distracting me from the overall goal of the endeavor I have begun.
There are so many numbers with every gadget. Stats on how many people have landed on your site. How many likes. How many visitors. How many tweets, re-tweets, favorites. The list goes on. And I am a numbers girl! I like to see the number go down on the scale. I like to know how many calories go into my body. I like to know how many minutes I have been on the treadmill, how many reps I have done, and how many calories I have burned. This is a result of being trained to constantly improve and establish SMART goals. But I think I am going to intentionally stay away from the data I keep seeing. I think I may even reduce the frequency of my posts to every other day. The journey doesn't really need to be documented daily. Although, I DO enjoy writing and getting things "out". But I do have a family, day job and friends and family - and there is NO way I am going to transform and successfully operate on 5 hours of sleep at night. Remember - I said EVERYTHING has to FIT my life in order for it to be sustainable. I am so grateful I am seeing this now. Otherwise, I am pretty sure things will fall apart soon and I will burnout FAST! Which I do not want, because I really do want to get into the best shape ever, kind of like Rachel.
Reading about transformations like this really does inspire me, when it comes to physique goals. They also inspire me to get moving. Today was a leg day. MAN! Those are some tough workouts! Today's workout is laid out on the Facebook page.
I hope you have a great day!
