A near u-turn!

The last two weeks were hard. I struggled with my food intake. There were so many events. My weight was beginning to take a u-turn. Just when I was excited to actually consider working out, I began eating more than I should! Praise be to God that my goal is to glorify God. I repented.…

6 months in

Tomorrow I complete 6 months since I determined to fight gluttony. I am thankful to God for how he has helped me fight my biggest sin. I have learned that it is not will power that helps us fight a bad habit. Will power is a depleting resource. What one needs is a good reason.…

Fighting a plateau

I did not provide any update for a few weeks now as I was fighting a plateau. Plateaus in fitness are not stationary but sometimes appear as reversals. They are not good for the mind. I would wonder if all is for naught. Is it all going to return with a vengeance? Thanks be to…
