Today was a pretty good day. I had my talk with God on the way to work, but I must admit, not as in depth as I would have liked. I was tired when I got up this morning and that always seems to make everything harder. I did not sleep well last night and I am sure that contributed to some of it. Getting out of work early definitely helped my mood though. Not that it was a bad mood, but it just helps to keep my spirits lifted. I think God knows what I need and He is helping me along the way.
I was pretty hungry tonight and really wanted to pig out. I ate a few cheesesticks and I wasn't going to record them in MyFitness Pal. But I did it and then I had my dinner and that is when I realized, I had gone over my calories for the day. Of course this is before any exercise yet. That is part of why the dogs and I went for a longer stretch tonight. But now the true test. On to P90X. Tonight is a weight workout and an Ab workout. This is always killer. I need to burn about 400 calories to stay within my limits. We will see how it goes. Is it bad that I am already dreading tomorrow night. I truly dislike the P90X yoga workout. I can't do most of the poses and it is a killer. But I do like how it makes me feel, so I hang in there.
Most of this stuff probably bores most of you, but when I write it all out and vent and just share my feelings, it really helps me along. So if any of you want to comment or keep a dialog going, please feel free.
One thing I have realized though, I need to do my workouts alone. I am not a partner person. Every other time I have been successful, it is when I worked out by myself. The strange thing is, I am not a loner by nature. But I will do what I need to do.
Now, I also know I need to continue to incorporate Jesus into this aspect of my life. I know that by getting in shape, I can help spread the Gospel more effectively. My body should be a temple and treated like such. This is the property of the King, who am I to vandalize it?
