One of the things I have struggled with as I age is my body weight. Diet and exercise are not my best friends. The reminder of my struggle is firmly rooted in the fact that I enjoy eating, hate exercise, and sometimes use food as an emotional outlet. Can you relate? Consequently my weight has fluctuated over the years like a championship yo-yo.

Eliminate diets. Replacing all “diets” with a “healthy eating plan”. Fad diets are quick fixes and rarely work long-term. A healthy eating plan requires a lifestyle change, and is not only a matter of how much we weight, but a matter of what we eat as well. A healthy eating plan honors God too. 1 Corinthians 6:19 (NVI)

Get moving. My youngest daughter believed that opening and closing the refrigerator was her favorite exercise. Hearing that worried me. I wasn’t exercising my body and neither was she. We both started by setting realistic goals, 15 minutes a day, three times a week. Gradually increasing the time to 30 minutes a day five days a week. Now we walk everyday for 30 minutes and get that time for ourselves to talk and create a special bond that will last a lifetime. That’s what I call choosing a healthy lifestyle with a dual purpose or effect.

Learn to rest. Rest is not an option if we are to function at our best. We sometimes stay busy because we are afraid to face our past or even the future.

Living on overdrive is not the way to live. When I do, the result had always been exhaustion and at times little productiveness. This may be another relatable moment for you.
