fixing it

The box came yesterday.  She carefully pulled everything out.  She rinsed the containers and labeled them.  She calculated her caloric intake and was surprised by how much she would be eating.  She read the instructions.  How am I going to work out EVERY day?  She wondered.  I’ll try.  She decided.

She then went to a birthday party and gave herself permission to eat cake.  Tomorrow would start “the Fix.”  She felt positive about it all, and set her alarm for 6:30am.

When the alarm sounded at 6:30am, she turned it off.  At 7:00am she rose, made her coffee and debated.  Should I lay in bed and check messages while my coffee brews, or pop in the DVD of the day?  She looked.  It was Cardio Fix.  She chose bed and messages.

When her coffee was done, she poured herself a cup and went into her office to read her Bible, as was her habit.  Why was it so easy to keep some habits up, but so difficult to keep/establish others?

Proverbs 13:4 (KJV) “The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing:  but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.”

I’m tired of being a sluggard, she thought.

Proverbs 13:19 (KJV) “The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul:  but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil.”

Hmm.  Diligence=healthy soul.

Accomplishing goals=sweet

Redefine “fat” and “sweets.”

This is my goal, she thought, Strong body, fat soul.

She walked to the closet and put her gym clothes on.
