Like every average person, I have never liked going to the gym to work out. I admired people who were fit, but it seemed like such an unattainable goal. But then it occurred to me that the same grace that I rely on to stay sober; the same grace I rely on in my Christian walk, is the same grace available to me to get healthy and fit. Its all about renewing my mind.
So on May 19th 2013, I made a commitment to getting in shape. I joined a gym, and decided to start eating healthy. Almost a month later, I can see some changes. I have lost 10lbs, and my energy level is up. Like they say, celebrate little successes, and stay focused on the goal.
