If I could change anything, right now it would have to be a selfish thing and I would say my level of self-control and discipline.
Yes, I realize the self-control is a fruit of the Spirit and that I just need to allow it to develop in my life. I also realize that the discipline is something that is developed through commitment and determination. For some reason, my commitment and determination just isn’t there when it comes to the long-term change of health.
For the past 20 years I’ve struggled with my weight. It doesn’t seem to matter if I exercise or don’t; wether I eat right or don’t. I can’t seem to develop a habit that makes that lasting change. I’ve heard that it takes 40 days to develop a habit and yet, I can do something for 6 months straight when it comes to health and then drop it.
I can’t understand how so many people make it look so easy to exercise daily. I set my mind to do a 5K. I got up an hour early five days a week. Once I completed it, I stopped exercising. I set my mind to learn to ride a bike, stayed up late to ride the bicycle after it cooled.
I can follow a specific diet plan for several months. I have even when lead, done 21 and 40 day fasts. But then don’t understand how I can do it for so long and yet throw it away in the blink of an eye.I have a problem with eating when I am bored, sad, angry, overwhelmed emotionally. Food is a social thing. I struggle to eat healthy. I binge eat with incorrect proportions.
So if I could change anything, right now it would be my discipline and self-control in regards to healthy living.
