Tuesday’s Fitness Check-in


Tuesday's Fitness Checkin


Good Morning everyone. I hope you are all doing well today.

I do not want to write this post.

I totally did not do anything I was supposed to do last week. In fact I didn’t even bother with the scale today because honestly I don’t want to know. I know what I need to know.  I did not eat the way I should have. I did not exercise one day last week. Meh. But there I wrote it down. Accountability means telling the truth even when I don’t want to. And right now my head is screaming, “I don’t wanna!”

So what am I going to do about it? That is really the question. My normal response would be to get terribly dejected and just quit. Why should I bother, I fail all the time anyway. But I am not going to quit this time.  Because… I keep getting reminders such as:

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.


I have been reading several books these past few weeks, and one of them keeps reminding me that I need to seek to be obedient to Christ. And that I am called to:

Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.
Right now my duty is to literally deny myself.  Candy was plentiful in our house last week.  I did not even try to deny myself.  Yet Christ says that if I want to be his disciple I need to be denying myself.  I want to obey Christ above all else, and so I made a few changes.
  1. I sent some boundaries on myself for when I can eat.
  2. I changed my lunch menu to make it more doable. (I was needing to cook my lunches separate from the kids, and I just didn’t have time.
  3. I am exercising. I made a decision that I really need to push myself to be more disciplined in this area.

So we shall see what sort of report I will give you all next week. But this week’s is not what I wanted to share.


So there you have my weekly check-in. How are you doing? Are you working at loosing weight or just trying to maintain your current health?  Tell me about it. And as always if you need more advice or tips for exercise head over to Peak313 and see what she is up to this week.

  1. I have a chronic illness as well, and my fitness goals are sometimes a challenge. I find myself constantly revisiting the goals I have and how to manage them. I’ve learned to tweak them and not worry about the fact that I have to do that. Prayers for you in your journey!
