Fit 4 Life Friday


It's been a while since I participated in the Fit 4 Life Friday...I haven't been doing very well on my goals, any of them! So, I NEED to get back to it! It all started going downhill the week my dad had surgery. I just had so much on my mind, and when I'm stressed, I eat...and don't exercise...and pray...but don't do a lot of reading. I have been reading fiction, novels to keep my mind busy, but nothing meditative, or reflective. I did get back on the scale this morning, dreading what I would find. But to my happy surprise, I'm right where I was a few weeks ago..at a grand total of -8 pounds. (I don't feel comfortable quoting the exact weight, that would be plain embarrassing!). Thanks, God, for the grace of not gaining everything back!

Thank God for a new day, and new beginnings!

This week, my goals will be to:


  1. Walk 5 of 7 days...at least 1 mile each day

  2. add some ab work

  3. watch what I eat (no more doughnuts!)

  4. get back to the water drinking

  5. read my Bible

  6. get to bed earlier so that the early morning walks will happen

  7. take my medication!! I'm supposed to be taking medication for insulin resistance (part of my PCOS)..and I'm just not very faithful at taking it. When I am faithful about taking it, it usually helps with weight loss.

Good luck to everyone! Check out Deedra's blog for other participants!

Andie, you will notice that several of us have had some off weeks, but we are all getting back on track this week. Glad to have you back. Your goals look great, good luck!!!

Looks like all of us can use some encouraging, it's not that easy to stay on track while there are so many things we need to focus on, but if we keep on encouraging each other and keep our eyes on the goal, we can do it.

Good luck for next week

God Bless

I've been off track for a few weeks, too, and am trying to get back on. It's hard to try to be healthy and set goals, but I think eventually it will get easier. Good luck!
