habits. Early last week I had an emotional storm brew and cut loose, no doubt. I shared with the gals in the group, the storm came and I was able to bend and sway with it, rather than snapping under the high winds. Then another emotional situation came up, back to back, and I feel I didn't handle it so well. But God. God took both and something beautiful is being birthed from it. Must have been those pesky birthing pains leading up to it! So here's what the week looked like...
Day 22 - Great day at work, great day with nutrition, great day in the gym, feeling high energy. The storm blew in. Ugh. I did have some Whole30 banana bread, maybe a little too much, but I guess I feel it could have been much worse. Turned in, and slept great.
Day 23 - Felt as though the storm was just hovering. It seemed as though I couldn't get away from it. Very emotional on my way to work. Fought old habits of giving up and giving in to food. So many things were there. But I desired to remain well and whole, rather than feed the temporary pain and discomfort. So I ran.
Day 24 - Spent time settling into a new ministry God has placed on my heart. There is so much potential for what He can do through me, it made me so excited, hopeful and sort of healed the hurts I was feeling. I saw my pain cannot consume me, or I become worthless to those around me.
Day 25 - Work stress had me a little down. Things are changing, and it has been something I am curiously watching unfold. I went to work out and discovered I forgot my sports bra, so I didn't work out. Came home and felt like I had hit a wall. This was by far the most emotional week yet. BUT, I didn't give in. I stood my ground. Unfortunately, it seems like my mind did not like it and I sort of bent REALLY FAR. OK, I think I actually
Day 27 - Yesterday my husband and I went on a mini-getaway. We left with the kiddos early in the morning, with the intent to explore without an agenda. I was able to meet my coach, Amanda Kuclo, from the Ultimate Oxygen Challenge. Man she is so awesome! We talked more about our Rock, faith and fitness, than I had expected. She agrees, we are nothing without Him, and our physical well being is directly tied to our relationship with God, the grace He provides and what we put into our bodies! We then had some great food, checked out art, an old school record shop and explored an artistic city. It was fantastic.
Day 28 - Now here I am. Ready to go into these last two-and-a-half weeks with more vigor. Perhaps the same vigor I had seven weeks ago, when God placed this challenge on my heart. I am also going into it with a new direction. One I am excited to see how God brings together.
Have a great week!
