Sometimes when I have a poor internet connection, some things on certain website just don’t work the way the should. They act really slow if they even work at all. But usually I can hit the refresh button and everything will work the way it’s supposed to.
If you’ve read my recent entries, or you’re at all close to me, you know that I’ve been dealing with a lot of stuff in the past few weeks and have had to break through a lot of hard things. Because all my attention and energy had to be focused on these things, I’ve been fasting a lot in the past few weeks. It hadn’t really affected me physically too much because I wasn’t taking part in much physical activity. But now, God is taking me to new grounds and doing a new thing. He has restored to me the joy of my salvation! It’s like He has breathed the breathe of new life into me! And because of all this, I now delight in the things that once made me happy! I can be active again and be happy!
But now, I’m realizing how much fasting has taken a tole on my body. I’m really really tired and feel really weak. The other day, I carried a cardboard and wood pillar that was about 8 1/2 feet tall and weighed only about 80 pounds. I carried it on my shoulder and only went down like 2 hallways and down a staircase. After I got done, I was super tired and felt really sick actually. I was shocked! It wasn’t hard work but it hurt to do it! I hadn’t realized how much fasting and lack of activity had so quickly taken a tole on my body.
But that was a few days ago and I’ve been eating well again and have been more active. Today, I even went to the Y. It actually sucks pretty bad, as far a equipment goes. There’s not much of it and the stuff they do have it pretty shoddy. BUT, they DO have a rock wall. It’s short and pretty lame, but there was a dude named Erin there who showed me how to make it fun and hard. There’s some sweet routs to dyno on and some crazy crimp climbs! It won’t be a very invigorating experience but it’ll help I guess. This Erin kid said he’s there every Wednesday and Saturday. I’m busy Wednesdays but free Saturdays so I think I’ll hit up the wall then so I can connect with him.
As far as all the other 6 days in the week go, I am determined to work out regularly in whatever way I can. Consistency is the key here! I just gotta do it! No fancy tricks or mind games, just do it!
