The Power of One ... or the POWER of The ONE!

Power of One Challenge

OK, I am beginning a new challenge today over HERE and wanted to let y'all know. I have seriously let things slide over the Holidays and have gained EIGHT pounds!

Oh. My. Word.

That is soooooo NOT acceptable.

So, back on the train I hop. I sent every last cookie and piece of cake to work with my man this morning and am re-working my food diaries to start on Wednesdays and am changing my weigh in days to Wed. too. And ONLY on Wed.! (That is a huge thing for me. If I weigh in too often it messes with my head!)

So, I am starting new. It means I will have to be very careful on New Years, but I can do that. Gonna start a mini detox between now and then and I WILL break out the running shoes again. Although, THAT may have to start tomorrow because of this stupid migraine (a SURE sign that my eating is outta whack!).

So, how about it? Wanna join me? New year, new you?

Here's the thing ... the challange is called "The Power Of One" and is centered around one person - yourself. Now, I an FULLY aware of where focusing on myself has gotten me. And, honey, it aint good. So, I am - for us who KNOW - switching it up. I am giving it to THE One and only One who can do it. I am gonna put all focus on "the power of THE ONE".

Cause, with HIM, I cannot lose ... or, ya know I CAN lose ... I can lose the weight!

So, what do ya say? Are ya with me?

So, here are MY goals:

**HEALTH - even if I stay this size forever, I want to be healthy. I want to watch my kids grow up and I want to be able to play with them while their young!!

**5K and 10K - yes ... and maybe even a half marathon. Although I may have just thrown up in my mouth a little at THAT thought!

**HIM - I want to find my TRUE identity in Him and make this body what HE created me to be. I want more than physical fitness, I want spiritual fitness too:

"Exercise daily in God - no spiritual flabbiness please! Workouts in thegymnasium are useful, but a disciplined life in God is far more so, making you fit both today and forever, You can count on it!" 1Timothy 4:7 (Message)
