This was a great radical week. I’ve kept my and my sisters’ goals at the forefront of my brain and really have been seeking and searching for ways to help us reach our goals. This week, I’ve focused more on my physical fitness and my no sweets goal. The no-sweets goal has been a little difficult because I’ve come to realize that I really like to drink something sweet when I eat a meal and I tend to overdose on juice :-). I’m done well with limiting my sweets intake ( I haven’t had any candy and only one soft drink). I don’t want to deprive myself because I know the outcome could delay my progress that I’ve made so far. I’ve been known to give up, just because of one bad day. My plan is to research some healthy alternatives.
On the physical exercise, I’ve exercised at least 10 minutes everyday of the new radical year. I feel stronger. I am taking it as a day by day event. This time I am not setting an exact poundage amount but I am more so trying to develop good eating habits and trying new exercises. If I lose weight, it would just be an added bonus.
The Radical Moment of the Week: I RAN! Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, I ran nonstop for 1 whole minute. I know that’s not a long amount of time ( felt like a lifetime) but it is a start. There are a lot of events and tasks that I sometime put off because I feel like I’m too big to start them. I’ve said in the past that I will start running when I lost 20 lbs., but allowing myself to embrace radical 7even and what it truly means to live radically for God, it hit me that I shouldn’t wait until the right circumstances present themselves, because they may never come. Sometimes, you just have to go to the mountain instead of waiting for the mountain to come to you.
Still Pushing with a little added running,
