Update!

My my my, it has been a good 8 months since I’ve even touched the ol’ blogaroo! I spent the last hour re-reading old posts and to see how things have changed in less than a year is so crazy.  I know this started as a food/fitness/recovery blog, but it has been on my heart lately to share what the Lord has been teaching me so I figured I might as well make use of this old site.

 

First of all, I want to share where I am in life right now!

  • I received a boyfriend, and then I lost a boyfriend. Totally unexpected, but it has been such a blessing and a teaching opportunity from the Lord.
  • I still workout 5-6 days a week and LOVE it.  Unfortunately, my focus has shifted just a little back to wanting to ‘look good’ instead of just ‘be healthy.’
  • I eat more basic foods now.  I miss making bowls of food where I just throw everything together and pray it’s edible.  My restriction list is wittling away as I delve into foods like ice cream, pasta, cookies, chocolate on a regular basis.  Yes, there is still guilt but you know what? It doesn’t have to consume me.  I eat and move on.  No dwelling.  No drawn out guilt.
  • I am now working, going to school, and have a new little dog.  All of which keep me stressed out to the bone and I realized how living a healthy lifestyle is a challenge when you don’t have a minimum of 6 hours to blow everyday.

I know this started as another ‘healthy living’ blog, which I absolutely loved doing and loved being in such a great community.  While I still strive to live as healthy as I can (although that’s been on the downslope in the past few weeks), I’ve been itching to write about what the Lord is teaching me!  Why, do you ask?  I have no idea.  There are so many thoughts swarming around in my head that need to be let go.  And so instead of starting a whole new blog and going through all of that formatting and figuring-things-out-junk, I’m just going to use this one.

Sometimes we reach the top of a mountain where things are GOOD and we feel blessed.  But the truth it, we are blessed even the lowest of valleys.  As I travel through this current valley, I want to learn and to grow and to see it as a blessing.

“I said to the Lord, ‘You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.” – Psalm 16:2

    this is such a good perspective to have! it’s amazing how sometimes in the hardest of times, it’s when we see and feel the Lord the most. He works in that way, like with Lazarus. suffering is the way to joy so many times, and hard times are what gives us appreciation of the good and all the blessings in every day life. i hope things get a bit less stressful for you, and i hope to read more about the awesome stuff God’s doing for you 🙂

  2. It’s so great to hear from you again!
