These cartoons are a more accurate reflection of my winter than I’d like to admit! For the first quarter, focusing on eating a very low-sugar, low-carb diet has paid off, because I’ve lost 9 pounds. BUT, between the extremely cold weather and high life pressures, proper habits of exercise have almost gone by the wayside. 😦By googling I found many charts that give approximations for how many calories our bodies will burn doing various activities. This is just one example that I liked, because it includes most of the usual ways I exercise and gives values for various weights, but if you’re interested, I’m sure a chart that includes your particular weight and activities is out there.
So, for this second quarter, which is spring, I’m going to try to add a second dimension to my “weight-loss journey,” which is spring training, to remind myself that fitness isn’t just being the proper weight, it’s also being physically fit!
“For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.”
(1 Timothy 4:8, NIV)
