I’m 25, overweight, out of shape and truly headed down a slipperly slope so I’m trying my very best to make a “new me”. My wife and I purchased a NutriBullet (which I LOVE), made some life changes (with more to come) and I started going back to the gym.
My first week has been tough but honestly very fun. Although I’ve struggled keeping myself on the elliptical and getting out of my bad eating habits, this first week has been fulfilling. And while I haven’t lost any weight just yet, I’m already starting to feel better just after 5 days, but it has NOT been easy.
This is just the beginning of the “new me”. I must push harder everyday, kill some bad habits and acquire some new good ones but I’d be lieing if I told you I haven’t been praying for God’s help during this transition period.
Here were my reasons ‘Why’ and ‘Why not’ I should change my life:
- It’s Biblical. My body is a vessel, the temple of the Holy Ghost!
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (KJV) – What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
- Live longer & feel better.
- Be a better “me” for my family.
- Avoid diseases & sickness.
- Look better.
- Too busy, no time!
As you can tell, the reasons to ‘get up’ and do something about it outweighs the reasons to ‘sit’ and do nothing. Fact: If I was healthier, I wouldn’t be so tired. Fact: Being lazy is a poor excuse and one that can kill. Face: While my schedule is already very busy, based on the amount of time I spend doing useless other things, surley I can find time to give my body time.
