Meditate

Meditate

 

Meditate-to engage in contemplation or reflection

Joshua 1:8-9 (New International Version)
8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Lets look at the first part
8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it

If we are to be more like Christ, why wouldn’t we read about him, the things he promises us are wonderful. I have asked this question to myself so many times. Because when I get up early and read, journal, and  pray I feel great. I do think about it for the rest of the day. Can the day still go bad, yes, but it makes it easier to deal with the issues.

The Lord gave this scripture to my husband and I for our fitness business several years ago for us to realize to be obedient, regardless, if we want to. Stay the course no matter what. Get back up on the horse if you fell off or had a bad weekend. Remember to use the people (women) you have met to help you. Watch out for this week is distraction week, be more disciplined then ever so you can overcome anything!

Yellow Brick Road

 

 

Road- a route or way to an end, conclusion, or circumstance
Galatians 6:9 (New Living Translation)

9 So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.
Every person’s road is so different. Everyone has exits they take. But how long will you stay on the exit before getting back on your road?

This is another reason for why I started this program because it took me 6 times to finally do it.  I tried the “Body for Life” by Bill Phillips 12 weeks plan, but wasnt able to actually be totalIy serious until 4 yrs ago. The 10 years prior I attempted to do it 6 times!!! I started great, each time I said I was ready, but within a few weeks it was obvious I wasnt really ready to give up the lifestyle or things that kept me overweight.

So I knew when I created this program the accountability part was the most important. So I can actually worn people about the detours and exits. The main goal for me to you is for you to get it done faster then it took me.  Change Your Mind, Change Your Life!

You have 4 weeks left in this transformation, but a lifetime of working on it. Stay Focused, Finish Strong!!!!!

Denial

DENIAL

1:  refusal to admit the truth or reality

 

Are you in denial of your situation? or the opposite, your not in denial, but you don’t follow through with what it takes to get where you need to be….both lead to destruction.

 

Dave Ramsey in “Total Money Makeover” says he doesn’t know what is worse an overweight person that everyone sees isnt doing anything about it, or a financially Fat person who is living on Credit cards or other peoples money…..both are denial. He says that sadly, enough most the people who were successful in his money makeovers were the ones who hit rock bottom first. The same could be said for the out of shape/unhealthy person who gets diabetes, a stroke, high blood pressure, ect…. This is to late.

 

At what point does ones desire to have a healthier life outweigh the desire to be lazy and then  the feelings of guilt that come along with that later? This is in every area starting with your relationship with God. Build healthy habits now, not when you or a loved one is in the hospital.  Change is sometimes an awful process in the beginning, but it is better to do it yourself, then a doctor force you to cut cold turkey so you dont die.

 

Once again, I had each of you right down an issue at the initial meeting. You may have figured out others or your main issue might have shifted but if you dont get control of that, then after this program is over that will still be there.
