I’ve started another chapter on this journey of weight loss. I’m refocused on what I need for my body and mind. As I’ve posted recently, I will be participating in the Biggest Loser contest at my gym, and in order to get my mind and body ready for fighting, I mean competing, I am working out an average of 2 hours a day right now, and will be moving into a 4 hours a day, 6 days a week regimen. Tonight while in my group class, Body Combat we were about 45 minutes into class and I was feeling the pain, I was feeling the excuses creep up into my head as to why I wasn’t able to keep going, but then Jennifer, my instructor, reminded me of the “No excuses” tag line from this season’s biggest loser and I immediately began to feel inspired! I was punching as hard as I could with all the pain I began to feel and realized how I could get through it. I began to feel the strength come back into me and know that this is what I had to do. I had to lean on God.
I want to tell you that when you aren’t able to believe in yourself, lean on God. Rely on the knowledge that He can get you through pain, discouragement, and any roadblocks in your way. Release the excuses to God and allow yourself to succeed.
