My quest at finally shedding 100 pounds or more. Good days or bad, weight up or down, exercised or not, I want to blog about it to for the next 12-20 months. Why the next 20 months. I figure if I lose 5 pounds a month, it will take me 20 months. I'm hoping by doing this, not only will it hold me more accountable, but will help me figure out what triggers my downfalls.

THE SPIRIT IS WILLING BUT THE BODY IS WEAK!
I had a friend of mine ask me the other day, "what is it about walking, jogging & running that I love"? That is a really hard question for me to answer. I do love walking and enjoying seeing God's beauty around me, but to be honest, I can't say that I have the same love for jogging & running. At this point I just have to make myself do it. There is a verse in the bible that says "The spirit is willing, but the body is weak (Mark 14:38)". Boy does that fit me to a tee, when it comes to eating & exercise. I desire to eat well & exercise, but is a daily battle with me. I make myself exercise 6 days a week, only taking off Sundays. There are days when I can think of all kinds of excuses (most acceptable) why I shouldn't exercise that day. I have to force myself to get up off my gluteus-maximus and get moving. Once I'm out walking, then I need to force myself to jog or run. I love that I am strong enough to not give into my laziness. It feels so good, when I win the battle with my body. One day I hope that it won't be a battle, and that I will not only love to exercise but desire to do it too.
