I don’t know if it is the heat or something else, but I have struggled the last couple of weeks to get my workouts started, much less completed. Which then means that it is easier for me to make excuses and not eat the way that I need to be eating. Which then makes it hard for me to get up and workout. And thus begins the ugly vicious cycle. Again.

Last week I wrote something to my Biggest Loser team that I keep coming back to this week as I am struggling.

Now is the time to re-assess your goals and your reasons for wanting to get healthy. You have to want it more than you want (cake, sleep, bread, ice cream, etc.) and you have to be determined to find success. You also have to depend on Christ for strength to say no to your inner 4-year-old that says you deserve (cake, sleep, bread, ice cream, etc.). Food is our sustenance, not a reward, not something we deserve. Make the choice today (and every day) to be healthy.

So that is where I am today. Re-assessing. Reminding myself that I don’t have to give in to my inner 4-year-old. And looking to see if there are adjustments that need to be made to my plan.

How are you coming on your goals today?
