Bring YOUR Faith to the Table
Okay we have survived thanksgiving and secretly trying to recover from all of the food and feelings of STILL FEELING STUFFED. As we make our way back to our fitness routine, perhaps you are already dreading the Christmas parties, the treats that the kids bring home from school and all of the dinners you are already invited to in the next few weeks. I know how you feel. It seems as if they is a secret mission enforced as soon as you commit to being fit. Although, you may take it as a sign to "start on Monday", let me assure you that there will always be a reason to start later or an "easy to access" excuse to try getting fit after the holidays - After all it a NEW YEAR. However, you must decide that enough is enough and say that TODAY IS THE DAY that you will turn your life around. If you can believe that Faith has power to turn your situation around, can't that same faith help you push the plate away. After all, faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence not seen...( Hebrews 11:1). You may not see the weight fall off in a week, but you must use your faith as a vehicle to move you forward BEFORE YOU SEE THE CHANGE IN YOUR BODY. You must bring your faith to the table. What does that mean, you ask ? Bringing your faith to the table involves what I like to call "mind-speak". You have to tell yourself that you are fearfully and wonderfully made and that you are going to make decisions that point towards that truth. Your faith can help you feel satisfied, when you would normally go for seconds. Faith can point out your 'triggers" so you can avoid the urge to eat when you are really not hungry. Your Faith, my friend can help you have self- control as it relates to food. So during this holiday Season, bring your Faith to the Table and reap the reward of enjoying the Holidays with ZERO GUILT.
