That was then... this is now

I am trying my hardest to stay healthy this week. I have been on the run from before sun up to well past sun down. Dealing with sickness and death in the family is a trial and I am beginning to feel so worn down. Not sleeping. Making more unwise food choices than usual. Holding off on exercise til the end of the day -like just before midnight, hence I am still up at almost 1am when I have church, a party and seeing my Dad on my agenda for tomorrow.

I am in 2 fitness challenges, 100 Miles in July and Six Weeks to Sizzling. And today, I did not meet 2 of my 4 daily goals. But I am not going to give up. That was the old me. The new me takes sadness and grief and frustration in stride and does not allow it to cause me to jump off my healthy living wagon -completely, that is. This week I am hitting some potholes in that road but I am strong enough to straighten the wheel and keep the car on the road. Giving up? That was then. Perservering through trials? This is now.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Shari. My prayers are with you and family. You CAN do all things through Christ who gives you strength. You are not the same person you used to be. :)
