What message is being conveyed to you through this creation?
Peace and blessings to all of earth.Take a deep breath and tell Yah any fears, concerns, anxious thoughts and listen for his voice after you breath out.
Life is about decisions. As we grow older we realize our decisions have consequences. For many of us we feel like we can't control our lives, our decisions, that we aren't motivated enough, we don't have a vision, or have the energy to go after our goals. As the old saying goes if it was easy everyone would be doing it. How do we get ourselves to take action?
We can get bogged down in what is called stinking thinking or negative thoughts which lead to being stuck in a rut or compounding depression. To get ourselves to take action we are going to have to change our minds, and rewire them.
Finally, my brothers and sisters, always think about what is true. Think about what is noble, right and pure. Think about what is lovely and worthy of respect. If anything is excellent or worthy of praise, think about those kinds of things. (Philippians 4:8, NIrV)
LIFE IS A RACE WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO FINISH?
You can watch a motivational video, or you can tell yourself to stop thinking negative thoughts, or I'm going to do it this time. Or you get started and one day, maybe two weeks later, or a month if you are lucky you are back to the old routine.
Does it really come down to how bad you want it? Or is there more to it?
Sleep Exercise Diet
These three categories can change our way of life and change our motivation/energy and vision for life.
As we age we need a little less sleep. Extreme athletes I've heard get about twelve hours sleep a day. However most of us are going to do really well around eight hours of sleep. Some of us can get by with six hours of sleep just depends we are all unique. Find your sweet spot and try to go to bed at the same time every day and wake up at the same time every day.
I personally believe the BODY FOR LIFE program by Bill Phillips is one of the best programs out there for exercise if not the best for the reward you get back for the time spent. However any program of exercise can be great if you stick to it.
The basic program of the Body Life program is to lift for 45 minutes three days a week and to do cardio for 20 minutes the other three days a week, alternating days. Then taking one day a week off. Which basically helps boost your metabolism.
I haven't given it a go yet, however I believe the WAHLS PROTOCOL maybe one of the best diets out there or as the book says not a diet a lifestyle. I am going to start both of these up soon I believe. Will give a follow up Lord willing to see how they go. Basically leafy greens, vegetables/fruits and sulfur rich vegetables diet, small serving of meat daily.
Currently I'm probably 50-60 pounds over weight so I'm no expert. However I did do the Body For Life back in 1999 and found great results getting to probably sub 10% body fat percentage level.
