This week’s recap being in the vine 7x a week, and Shapely Girls Cardio with Weights a minimum of 3x a week

16th – John 15:16  “You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit, fruit that won’t spoil. As fruit bearers, whatever you ask the Father (in my name), he gives you.

Under the Leaves We all know what is seen under the leaves of the vine…signs of trouble.  Debra’s encouraging emails this week revealed that we all have challenging times, and to not focus on what we didn’t do but what we can do.  I too have had to evaluate, and change the plan of action.  Switching the exercise with cardio one day, weights the next, and combination the third helped add variety and new challenges.

17th – John 15:17  “But remember the root command: Love one another.

Enemies of Maturity –  Sometimes I think I am my greatest enemy to maturity. To love another as I love myself is all too easy as I am too hard on myself and too disappointed, so the challenge while struggling to make the time to exercise daily is to first get in the Word, so I can be filled with the love-words of one who truly loves without rancor.  Now I can go to start the day – to say what else can I do to stir my metabolism, to get all those things accomplished but not to lose the focus of my health commitment.

 

18th – John 15:18   “If you find the godless world is hating you, remember it got its start hating me.

The Farmer’s Diligence   No matter the weather, the pestilence, the weeds, the death, the farmer keeps going, everything done toward the goal of developing fruit.

I’ve returned to drinking tea during the day, upped my magnesium for the sore muscles, and added back the bouncing on the rebounder to clear the lymph nodes.

19th – John 15:19 If you lived on the world’s terms, the world would love you as one of its own. But since I picked you to live on God’s terms and no longer on the world’s terms, the world is going to hate you.

Having Done All, Stand – The emotion of the world affects my moods greatly.  But I don’t want to depend on those feelings to gauge my progress.  I struggle with drinking enough water, and have added that to my daily checklist.  If I can look at the paper and see I exercised – check, drank the water, check, ate three meals and snacks – check, I can put the emotion behind me.  Checklists encourage me that I’m on the right track

20th – John 15:20   “When that happens, remember this: Servants don’t get better treatment than their masters. If they beat on me, they will certainly beat on you. If they did what I told them, they will do what you tell them.

Softer and Sweeter – Anything I do to aid and improve the temple will be challenged by the enemy.  I can tell that Debra’s little encouragements (like, when you don’t feel like exercising, do it anyway) come from personal experience.  Sore muscles, tiredness, don’t want to do it, yep – they are all here – the checklist for discouragement is filled too – well guess what – I exercised anyway, and felt better afterward.

21st – John 15:21   “They are going to do all these things to you because of the way they treated me, because they don’t know the One who sent me.

Time for Celebration  – Lost only a half inch more – BUT there are many other causes for celebration.  I feel better on awaking, my clothes fit better, The Shapely Girl Fitness video is helping to develop new habits and new feelings – the energizing after-workout “I’m so glad I did that”, being in the Shapely Girls Fitness Crew giving and receiving encouragement, daily victories a cause for celebration.
