Trying to get back on track

Friday, June 16, 2017

So, back in March, I fell totally off the wagon. My weight loss had halted. My inches had hardly changed. I was working out on the elliptical 30-45 minutes a night. I was also adding a mile walk on some days. I don't even remember exactly how the workouts stopped or why. Health has been on my mind since then. I have been just quietly trying to pull myself back into the wagon and keep tracking along on my journey. So, I keep praying and working through my failures. A few days ago, I hit my second trimester of pregnancy. My dizziness and nausea eased a bit. My exhaustion did not. As I prayed for encouragement and strength, reminders of the energy and motivation workouts previously brought, flooded my mind. My goal for now, knowing I am expecting is to gain better perspective on my eating and workout habits, and to be in the best possible health I can for baby and I. I am understanding now how important the scheduled breaks are. I know I cannot be an all or nothing gal. Now I pray for God's strength, wisdom, and courage to fill me so I may fulfill God's will for my life.

    Your back on track looks a whole lot different now that you're pregnant. Take good care of yourself & baby.
