My new attitude is this – even if I have a headache – go to the gym three times a week. I’m going to have the headache anyway, why not burn some fat while having it? I can always take something for the pain after I get home and let it put me to sleep for a while.
I had a great work out yesterday. I am averaging 45 minutes, using some – but not all the machines. They are so easy to use that it is a pleasure to let the machine help me stretch or build muscle. I love the treadmill and bike but the other machines are great too. I set the weight to ‘0’ and it seems to be heavy enough for me. I have noticed a big difference already. The saggy part of my upper arms – gone! I am walking taller and straighter and I feel so much better. Sore? You bet. Worth it? You bet!
I took my sister with me to Planet Fitness. She is eight years older than I. I wasn’t sure she would like it – she loves it! She has been super fit many years of her life and wants to be fit again. She will give me that extra boost to get me to the gym when I need one.
I am reading a wonderful book called ‘Unbound’, by Neal Lozano. It is “A Practical Guide to Deliverance”. He is a compassionate man with many gifts of the Holy Spirit. He illustrates how we can be carrying so much pain; we may not even realize it. I am just halfway through the book and have written pages and pages in my journal of fears I have kept inside me. Neal tells you how to find them and get rid of anything that stands between you and a glorious relationship with God.
Deliverance is a very small part of inner healing, but it is very important to recognize that Satan is doing all he can to confuse and discourage you. According to Neal, God wants to show you how much He loves you. In his book he describes how to reach out to God for a healing for yourself and others. This is another way to have ‘HolyHealth’ – a way that I need to learn more about.
