No matter what you’re going through in life, there’s a lesson to be learned that somehow turns into a blessing!
For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been dealing with my own challenges that I will call lessons. It’s been said that “If you keep doing what you’ve been doing & expect different results, it doesn’t work that way.” The same can go for my health fitness journey. I have to continue to push myself with different workout routines; changing eating habits; making sure to drink more water. For over a week, my car was down due to loss of oil and a coolant flush. So in this lesson, I took public transit to work and music ministry rehearsal. It’s been brutally cold with wind chill factors in single digits and we’ve experienced snow that’s been consistent. I realized during this lesson that I needed to work out more. What I didn’t pay close attention to is that I’m slowly gaining strength in my legs and hopefully toning up with cardio.
I’ve been trying to cook more at home and using different recipes for smoothies, especially green ones. I’m looking forward to an income tax refund (so is everyone else LOL)
Thank goodness that some things could be repaired on my car. I had to list the priorities in order and concentrate what can be done. Trust me, if I had the resources at my disposal to repair everything on my car, I’d take care of it! I’m grateful that I can still drive it!
During my journey, I’m reminded to trust God and not give up hope, because he knows your heart and has plans for you that anyone could ever imagine. I sense that he has a plan for me during my journey but I haven’t locked in on it yet. I want to be able to be a blessing to someone else and share my journey. As it’s been said, “You can’t have a testimony without a test.” I will continue to keep moving as long as God allows me to.
This is American Heart Month where we highlight the awareness of heart disease among women. It’s the #1 killer of women, more than all forms of cancer combined! I wore my red for National Wear Red Day on Friday, February 1, 2013 as well as my heart dress pin. There will be events highlighting this issue, especially in social media. I participated in a 30-minute Zumba class. See? Another opportunity for cardio! It was a good turnout along with the pot luck lunch afterwards.
Today is the day for Super Bowl XLVII (47 -I was never good with Roman Numerals LOL) in New Orleans, LA between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers. Granted, I’m a Dallas Cowboys Fan all day everyday, but it would be nice for Ray Lewis of the Ravens team to win it before he officially retires from football. Talk about someone who has a testimony of lessons becoming blessings is #52!
It’s already been a good day so I can’t complain. Just because I’ve lost a couple more pounds and will eat some food today, doesn’t mean I can kick back and let go! I still move forward!
Special S/O to my fellow music connoisseur and #TeamVirgo @Laineystarr for the music inspiration!
