My Fat Equals Lame – April 16th Update

April 16, 2012

Well, I fell off the wagon this week. No gym. Lots of unhealthy eating. I didn’t gain anything, but I didn’t lose anything, either. Bah, suck. There’s plenty to lose. I’m just being lazy.

For me, getting to the gym is the catalyst for everything. If I get to the gym, I’m motivated to eat healthily simply because I don’t want all the work to end up being useless. One trip to the gym leads to a healthy day of eating, then another trip to the gym, etc.

Here’s the other thing:  I want my life to reflect the fruit of the Spirit, one of which is self-discipline.  Titus 2 says this:

Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness.

Self-discipline is the mark of maturity.    Paul writes this in 1 Corinthians:

Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.

This is what I want my life to reflect – self-control, discipline, godliness.

So, I had a protein shake for breakfast, and I’m about to heat up a Lean Cuisine for lunch.  I know, I know, Lean Cuisines aren’t that healthy.  Cooking healthy meals is the next step.

I’m at 273 this morning.  The goal is to be at 269 by April 30th.
