If you missed the news posted in the Weigh~In Wednesday FaceBook Group….. we are broadening what Weigh~In Wednesday is all about…..
I felt convicted that though it’s super important to check in regularly with how well we are treating our bodies through healthy eating and exercise….. I also wanted us all to have the chance to weigh~in on how we are doing as a whole person. A chance to set goals and then evaluate each week how we are doing with our goals for our bodies, our minds, and our souls.
We will continue to weigh-in on how we’ve done with our healthy eating and exercise goals.
This is where we can weigh~in on goals we are setting to grow our minds. Maybe you’ve decided to start a new hobby, read a challenging book, learn a new subject. Whatever it is that stimulates and grows your mind.
This is where we can weigh~in on goals to grow in our Christian faith. Maybe you’re starting a bible study, striving to memorize more scripture, committing to daily Quiet Times.
My hope is that we can all learn and grow from one another. And as has always been the case, this is where we hold one another accountable, encourage one another, and spur each other on.
So my weigh~in for the week:
My back has been a hot mess. So I have avoided the gym. I have been eating Chobani yogurt and granola most mornings for breakfast — keeps me super filled. I have been walking for my exercise. And I’ve done a horrible job of packing my water. I’ve been busy and just find myself not prepared when it comes to eating and drinking while on the go. This Week’s Goal: WATER, 5 Long Walks, No eating after dinner!
I’ve been on a quest to learn to do things better. I’ve been practicing becoming a learner. Given that I’m rather independent…. I’m taking time to ask and learn rather than do my own way. This Week’s Goal: Schedule a Photography Class
I’ve been enjoying daily morning Quiet Times….. recently read a new favorite quote to keep me going with that: Elizabeth George encourages women to “beat your family up”! :-) So I’m trying to make sure I do that each morning to have true Quiet Time. The bible study I’m doing encourages the use of index cards for scripture memorization but also to keep your mind focused on the positive thoughts your striving toward. My stack of cards is growing each day! This Week’s Goal: Memorize a new verse.
