Weigh-In Day, Week 20

on June 8, 2013

It has been one stressor of a week, I won’t bore you with details. I am actually very surprised that I only went up a single pound this week, although perhaps I shouldn’t be. I did continue to eat healthy, in spite of everything I have going on and I managed to squeeze in just a couple of short workouts. I am happy that my weight didn’t climb further since I know both stress and sleep deprivation can hinder weight loss.

My message to you this week is this, even when life throws you curve ball after curve ball and you feel like you are drowning in the overwhelming madness that fills your days and steals your sleep at night, you DON’T have to give in to eating for stress relief. You don’t have to become a couch potato. Those bad weeks come to all of us and yes, more than anything I have wanted to hide in my bed and do nothing but sleep all week and eat cheeseburgers, but I didn’t. And I am glad I didn’t. Because if I had ,and my weight had gone up 5 pounds instead of 1, I would be going into this next week with an even bigger ball of stress to chew on.

As it is, I’m ready to get up, brush myself off and move on, hoping for a week with a little less crazy and a little more peace.

    Testings (stresses) in our lives are for our good too because they build our faith with increased patience, endurance, and wisdom.
    Sara, you are one tough cookie.
    Brush off the flour, put on some frosting, and trust in Jesus our Lord!
    He will go through it all with you and often even ahead of you.
