Changing My Stinking Thinking

In 2017,  I only lost 30 pounds.  That’s better than the year before but I still have a long way to go.

Are you waiting for change in your life?

However, throughout the year the Lord has been changing my stinking thinking.

This has not always been easy and there are times when I’ve wondered if I will ever get to where I need to be.

I’ve  had to swallow my pride and admit the damage I’ve done to my body over the years as I went on blood pressure medicine and the C-Pap.

But, I’ve also learned that change begins from within.

I am learning about healthy swaps and options, that my body craves vegetables and fruits, how to cook healthier and the importance of exercise {which is still a struggle}.  I’m learning that I have to take time for myself and to rest.

Change Your Thought Process

I’ve been discovering how to read my body and the signals it sends based on the foods I eat.  There are foods it loves and foods that make me tired and sluggish.

I’ve also used to seek alternative and learn how to use essential oils, spices, apple cider vinegar and coconut oil in my regime.  I’m learning to eat earth based foods over processed foods or fast foods {again this is easier said than done}.

I’ve learned that for every few step forwards there is a step backwards.

But, most importantly I’ve learned to lean on the Lord and seek His help during this journey.

How are you changing?

So, as I move forward into 2018, I continue to build on what I’ve learned in 2017 and to increase my health and well being.  But, I also continue to work hard and change my stinking thinking to become healthy.  This means educating myself and changing my thought process and habits.

I did not get unhealthy overnight and learning to live a healthy lifestyle is definitely not happening overnight.  But, I  know that the battle is definitely worth it.

After all, my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in me.  I was bought with a price and should honor the Lord with my body.  {1 Corinthians 6:19-20}

What area of life do you need to change your stinking thinking?  Is your body a temple of the Holy Spirit?
