Trekking through life: Faith, family, friends and a whole lot of coffee!

Final update… October 16, 2012

Well, 5 weeks and I made it through the Peak 313 Challenge.  It was a good jump-start to getting a little more disciplined and NOT getting sidelined by life with healthier eating and exercise habits.  For me, it’s more on the eating side, the exercise thing–I got it.  I just enjoy food.  I enjoy making it, serving it and fellowshipping with and around it.  I just need to make friends with it.  As my friend commented to me during this challenge, “I am eating for fuel…not just eating”.  True.

So, to report…the scale didn’t really budge much, which is disappointing and truth be told, can quite easily depress me into a return to emotional eating.  However… clothes are fitting looser and I have more energy, so I am motivated and encouraged to continue on with my journey…and if I’m making good choices and treating this body as the temple that it is and nothing changes on the scale then I’ll work on making peace with that, too.

And that’s OK.


1Corinthians 6:19

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?

    That was always my problem as well : exercising was more than enough , but my eating needed some tweeking . Good luck the rest of the way:)

    The scale can lie sometimes! If your clothes are fitting better, then you’re definitely shrinking. Glad you’re overcoming your ’emotional eating.’ It’s something that was difficult for me to overcome as well, and I do battle with it every now and then.
