Today’s Writing Prompt: Gratitude…Ha!

Image

 

So today I was in a grumbling mood today. Normally at work, Thursday are SUPPOSE to be the slow days and however the day was just as busy as the others! This is frustrating to me because I have side projects that I would like to get done. Some of that happened and some of them didn’t.

Today I was reflecting on how I needed to be grateful. Later when I went shopping today, I was listening to “The Science of Getting Rich” and the author was taking about gratitude. The ha-ha moment came just now as I went to a website to find a writing prompt and , the topic: GRATITUDE! I’m not kidding!

The prompt is: Name three things I am thankful for…

  1. Salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  2. God’s patience with me.
  3. Becoming aware of the need for gratitude. 🙂

What about you?  How did life speak to you today?

P.S. Totally slipped my mind that today is Thankful Thursday too!

A Better Day Today

Image

Today was a better day than my little pity party.  I realize that I need to journal my thoughts everyday as I climb from the mush, slime, and goo of laziness into the dry fertile land of fitness.  I feel like I let a lot of you down.  You looked to me for guidance, advice, and inspiration with being the leader of The Strong Nation and all.

I sincerely apologize for not being there for you.  I burned out.  I lost my drive.  I became disillusioned with the whole fitness lifestyle.  At times, I look at the pictures of those on Twitter and Facebook and think to myself, “Is this really worth it?”  All fitties want to talk about is working out, working out, working out.  I was getting tired of being the one to beat the drum, call the warriors to battle, and then pretend to be this mighty guru who oversees the kingdom of fitness.

I type these things because I see that the fitness world is missing honesty and integrity.  For people to become less self-obsessed with how good they look in the mirror and more on what health really is.  Just because someone looks like a Greek statue of fitness, the outside doesn’t tell the inside (e.g. insecurities).

As I rethink this concept of fitness, you are invited to join me as I peel off the layers to discover who I really am, what is truly fitness, and to get away from the chest-beating drivel you find on Twitter.

I am going to be real.

I no longer want to hope to be fit. I need to make decisions that stick and last while not losing my integrity to become a stronger version of me.

What about you? Are you struggling with fitness and staying in shape right now?

Strong by choice and the Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Post

Hi Fit Friends,

Remember me?

it’s been a while I know yet I need to start writing again so you are forced to read all of my ugly writingness.  Yes, this is not a word I am just getting thoughts on paper…erm…screen in order to gt get out what I have been feeling.

Truth be told, I haven’t been working out or training in months now.  Nada.  Zip.  Goose eggs.

I have been so absence from working out that my body laughs at the thought of even working out again.

Wow, how did I get to this dark place?  I can tell you.  choices.  The one choice to stop being consistent and the whole world falls with you. 

Still, there is hope.  There is always hope and I know this too will pass.  This is just a challenge for me to overcome.  We can get back to stellar shape.  All this takes is just one step.

Sorry I have neglected you so long, Citizens of The Strong Nation.  Even Superman can fall.
