Body Image. You Can’t Express Trials. Choose30. Whatever.

Well, it’s been a month since I posted Reflection Rejection where I shared with y’all my disappointment in myself and how I’ve cared (not) for my body.

Now that’s a great way to begin a post. Full of positivity and chocolate sprinkles!

But, it’s real life, right? Everything isn’t always perfect. And my platform is, to be honest about my journey. So if I’m going to share the highs of life, then I must share the lows as well.

And side note here: I’ve heard many believers in Jesus say that Christians should display themselves only in a jovial manner and that we should never appear shaken because it’s a bad witness.

Jesus said: “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

To live in a manner that hides the lows is, to me, a false witness. The difference here is, in my lows, I have peace in Jesus and hope like no other hope because I know He sees and is in control.

Sorry. Had to get that out.

Back to my body! I have continued my rock star eating and am loving it! I have done yoga regularly and added cardio to my plan, and I can feel a difference. I don’t own a scale, but I do own eyes – and I can see a difference as well. A slight one, but a difference nonetheless.

One of the things that have revved up my excitement to stay committed to exercise is resurrecting my old #Choose30 group. Choose30 is a group of serious goal makers and keepers, and it is a community of encouragement and accountability. We take one month at a time to work on something personal to each of us. It could be small or big, but we share it with each other and journey in it together. It’s a lot of fun! You should check it out – would LOVE to see you there!

So that’s my health update with a few extras thrown in!

Be encouraged friends – choose joy – love well.
