Just one step...



Just one step...Just one step...Just one step!

This is my phrase for the week.  After the crisis of last week, I find myself flitting in the wind.  Last week my routine and schedule were non existent. I am embarrassed to admit that I didn't exercise....there went my running plan.  I didn't exactly make the wisest choices for good nutrition...there went my weight loss.  I didn't have my morning time with my Maker...there went my peace, strength, confidence, patience, and a multitude of other comforts that I receive when I spend time with God.  I miss Him.  I miss hearing His voice...

Now, typically I would start with a unrealistic goal plan beginning on Monday morning: exercise for an hour, plan my meals to cover all food groups, bible study/pray for an hour, etc....however...my soul and body are still tired...so I am going to extend myself some grace and take just one step!

My first step will be to be in bed on time tonight. 

My next step will be to exercise for 15-20 minutes in the morning.

My next step will be to open the Word, read, sit and listen...resting in the comfort of my Lord's arms...

Looking forward to the steps and getting back on track!

Hope you have a great Monday!

Hi Kim!
I've certainly had weeks like this. I think there is wisdom in just taking one step in the right direction. And I think there's no better feeling than getting back on track, is there?

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and celebrating with me. Blessings to you this week.

That's the best way to do it. Small, acheivable goals. When I'm resisting a walk, I tell myself, just go around the block and see how you feel. You have time for that much, then I turn another corner, and another, and soon I've been out there for a nice, long walk and feel so refreshed.

That's the key - just one step! And then another....

Kim sweetie! One day at a time. Every day is a good day and you will be back on track. But my question is who made the rules to what "back on track means? :) Hugs from North Carolina

My sister is a breast cancer survivor of 15 years. She is also a runner. She puts me to shame. She is my hero.

Found you from the A to Z Challenge. I'll be back, am following you now. *smiles*
