Hope all is well with you on this fine Thursday afternoon! Let’s talk about health/wellness on today. We are settling in the fall season, Thanksgiving, and the Christmas holidays are upon us. Do you realize that we only have sixty-nine days until 2015? Beloved, I would like to encourage you to take inventory on your current eating habits, lifestyle, and exercise regimen. Are you still waiting on “Monday” to get your act together? Read on and let me share a little secret with you… You can start today! That’s right don’t wait until “Monday”, next week, or even the New Year. Friends, I would like for you to start with small gradual changes that will erupt into sweet vitality. There’s no magic pill, potion, or powder that will lead you to a lifestyle of health/wellness.
I have personally discovered the overall recipe for success to experience major breakthrough in this area. First, obedience, and overall submission to God’s purpose and plan concerning this area, and the overall fabric of my being. The key elements were to have love for myself, plenty of support from family, and friends, and resilience. You will also have to meditate, pray, cry, declare war against fat, and the forces of darkness. In spite of it all, you have to remain focused, consistent, and diligent.
Beloved, it starts with a shift in your mindset, heart, release all toxins (including people and things that hurt you), bitterness, anger, and unforgiveness. As you can clearly see, the list is endless! Consider this: Are you allowing food or situations beyond your control to dominate you? Are you turning to food to deal with toxic internal issues? Beloved, this leads straight to repeated insanity, cycles of self-sabotage, and abuse. Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, 1 Corinthians 6:19 (NLT)
If you eat fast food, drink sodas, smoke, or drink alcohol in abundance, then slowly start reducing how much you intake. Don’t attempt to go “cold turkey” or will you want to quit. Quitting is not an option. You have to slowly transition your body. As the time goes on, and your body adjusts you will only desire healthier options. The small or large amounts that you consume on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis will ultimately fade. Don’t think of your changes as a diet. In my opinion, trying to diet is a set up for failure, and repeated cycles of insanity. Try to embrace this as an overall lifestyle change for your overall health/wellness. Don’t do it for anybody else but you! Aren’t you worth it to show up for yourself? Until we meet again…I love you to life!
