Last week I worked out 4 days….FOUR!!! It was amazing and I felt amazing!! I even wrote about it on my blog.
So do you know where my motivation went?
I can’t find it.
Why do I continue to miss out on the opportunities that I know will help me to feel better? Why do I continue to eat the things that do not make me feel good?
Romans 7:19 The Message (MSG)
17-20 But I need something more! For if I know the law but still can’t keep it, and if the power of sin within me keeps sabotaging my best intentions, I obviously need help! I realize that I don’t have what it takes. I can will it, but I can’t do it. I decide to do good, but I don’t really do it; I decide not to do bad, but then I do it anyway. My decisions, such as they are, don’t result in actions. Something has gone wrong deep within me and gets the better of me every time.
Now I know exercise and healthy eating may not seem to be part of the bigger picture of things that God would worry about…but I firmly believe He has called me to healthier living. However, my flesh takes over and I make choices leading me down the path that I do not wish to travel.
So here I am, looking for my motivation. Have you seen it?
What do you need help with being accountable? Is it easy for you to be healthy or does your flesh win out like mine? I pray for us to be strong!!!
