September gleanings

Monday, October 01, 2012

A beautiful month September had been to me, it was a month I thought I would not survive financially but it was the month I did so much I became unbelievable to myself. God really proved me wrong, He stood by me and with me and really gave me a reason to praise him today. In the words of a song

"What can I say unto the Lord, all I have to say is thank you Lord,
Thank you Lord, thank you Lord, all I have to say is thank you Lord."

At the beginning of the month, the word came to me from the Lord "to move forward", reading from the scriptures and looking at Moses' example, irrespective of the red sea, the multitude were told to move forward and they did obey despite all what they saw. So I also did irrespective of all that was before me including my plateau of 78kg, I actually moved forward in the power of His might and in His wisdom. I just know I will get there no matter what may come my way.

For 16 days I did not workout and I thought I will fall out completely from this journey, my desire to dance to all my workout DVDs were not achieved but I can still say I had a pass mark because with that little I could put in I had both scale and non-scale victories.

I had reason to move ahead concerning my health, saw new set of doctors and for the first time in 3 years someone is very positive (even if that is all I have got, it is working for me).

I got myself new set of furniture for the living room and they looked really cool, at least with that change I was brightened (things like this has a way of working on one's psychology).

I changed my wardrobe (courtesy of DH), I was having too many adjustments done to my clothes especially my native attires. At a point I knew I needed to move forward and get new sets of clothes which I did. I was in a shop this conversation ensued,

woman: "what size do you wear?"
Me: '16',
woman: "no no, a 14 will be the perfect size for you
Me: I know 16 is my size
Woman: Try the 14 first, if it doesn't fit you can make your choice

Voila! Even my bust that am afraid will not fit just entered without stress. Am so happy with myself right now.

There are challenges for every human in this life but for God's sake, its what you make out of it that matters in the long run. I have decided never to ever run myself down no matter what may come my way, I am determined to be the best, make myself happy and be sure to let others glorify God in me.

Bring October on sparkies, we shall face it straight. I will set my face like a flint and will not be confounded.

Still enjoying my workout DVDs and I hope to work it out in this October till I can say every word in the mouth of the instructors before they even say it out, know the next circuit/exercise.

I also intend to go back to the gym this October, run and also use the cross trainer as much as possible.

Did I beat my goal of 74kg in September? NO

Did I do well in September? overall YES

    When you ask "Thy will, not mine, be done.". You will probably get an answer. Maybe not quite what you expected but as requested "Thy will, NOT mine..."
    Have an enlightening October:)
