Oh it feels good to use a minus not a plus sign. We ordered our exercise bike last night. Crazy excited for its arrival on Monday. Crazy excited!!!
Change is hard. But it's healthy. I recently finished a book for the second time (The Emperor's Soul by Brandon Sanderson) and one quote really stuck out to me.
It's not imitating anything; it has become a better version of itself.
Sometimes I wonder, "am I doing this to be like _____ or _____ ? Or am I on this health journey to be a better version of myself?" On the days I'm focused on being the best me, I'm happier, less stressed. On the days the focus is imitating others, I can't be successful so I feel like an utter failure.
Thankfully, there is One that I should focus on imitating.
But the beauty of imitating Him is that in the process, I'll become my best version

Don't be discouraged. My bad choices of January may be catching up to me but good choices have been happening lately. Take a deep breath. You got this.
Plus guess who's getting an awesome exercise bike in hopefully the next week? Me! I'm so excited to finally be able to bike away my pounds!

"There is a difference between receiving a testimony of truth and being truly converted."
As we read through this message for Family Home Evening tonight, what I heard was, "There is a difference between knowing how to be healthy and being truly healthy."
As a dear friend said,
I need to truly be converted. Instead of doing it, and resenting every minute of it ...
Amen. And amen.
