I’m still loving Best Body Bootcamp. Not only are the workouts fantastic, but I’m also so glad that there are personal goals incorporated into the 8 week challenge. For example, we chose two goals for weeks 1 & 2. I chose to read to Adeline daily, and to drink at least eight cups of fluid per day.
We just began week 3 of Bootcamp, and It’s pretty fun to see how those “goals” have started to transform into habits.
For the next two weeks, I added the goal of reading my Bible daily. I love the #SheReadsTruth movement, and our church is challenging everyone to spend time in the word. I’m currently reading through Galations, and it feels good to be reading God’s word daily. I haven’t talked much about my faith on the blog in a while, probably because my prayer life and consistency in reading my Bible has been practically nonexistent.
I like to pretend that I’ve got everything together, but I’m just fooling myself. I feel more anxious, more scatterbrained and less sure of myself when I’m not spending time in the Bible. Our mission group at church has been challenging one another to be in the bible and to be in prayer. Two very simple concepts, yet it’s quite difficult to make the choice to read or pray when there are so many other distractions.
I’ve got a checklist on my fridge with my goals for the week, and having a visual reminder of what I want to accomplish helps me to make time for each activity.
It has also been such a blessing to be surrounded with Christian women- single women, married women and other mothers. It is so helpful to know that there are other women who struggle with the same things that I do. We all struggle, but we can also rejoice in the freedom that we have in Jesus.
Throughout the next 5 weeks of bootcamp, I’m excited to see my body get stronger. But I’m even more excited to deepen my relationship with God, because He is my true strength.
