Can This Curse Become a Blessing?

Physical Faith, Part 7: How many battles have I fought to overcome my unhealth with just my willpower alone? For so many years, I said to myself, “You got yourself into this, it is your responsibility to get yourself out.” Oh, how I wish I could have seen earlier what a fool I was for not letting God be the source of my strength, for not asking the Creator of my body to give me the help and motivation to take care of it! My stubborn independence just left me more and more discouraged each time I would fail, year after year. But it doesn’t have to be this way!

Falling Off the Wagon & Getting Back On

Physical Faith, Part 5: Well, I failed. Here I am writing this series on healthy living and I am thoroughly bruised from my recent fall off the exercise wagon. Man, it sucks to be here — again. It seems like just when I get some good momentum going, life takes a turn and all of my hard work falls by the wayside. I can’t necessarily blame “life” for this either because I am the one making most of these major life decisions that keep rocking my routine, like moving into the house we just bought. However, it doesn’t negate the fact that I fell, hard, out of the habit of exercising. What’s a girl to do about it?
