1 Thessalonians 5:16-18:
"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
I went to the gym this morning. Walked on the treadmill for 25 minutes. Not all that impressive, but an accomplishment none the less. It's the first real workout I've done this year. At least since ankle surgery last month.
I made a new commitment to a friend today. I'm going to exercise 6 days a week, and I will blog everyday. And in my posts I will focus on something positive.
The reason I haven't been writing is because I am in a really dark period of my life and I just can't seem to snap out of it. So why should I keep writing the same thing over and over and over again? I have no motivation, I don't feel like doing what I'm supposed to do to lose weight and be healthy, and I am tired. Those 3 things are recurring phrases that run through my mind, and my speech. If you've had the pleasure of my company the last few months, you know that I haven't been myself. I haven't gotten a lot of sleep, so I think the lack has really built up and caused me to sink into a depression. At least I hope that's what it is, because I've made some changes to my life recently and I should be getting on a more routine sleeping pattern soon.
Today, I am thankful for understanding and supportive family and friends who haven't given up on me, even though I appears that I've given up. And I am thankful for my loving Father in heaven.
