Life is all about timing–when it comes to love, career, the body, anything. All we can do is be our best and trust what is for us will be for us, but sometimes, our ego can get the best of us. This makes us chase people and things that are not accessible yet or not for us at all. We can try and rush things but this normally caused conflict instead of peace. Learning to trust the Universe and Gods perfect plan is the best decision I have ever made. Yes, this is a decision each one of us should make but are not required to. God gives us free will, and no matter what we chose our Lord will still love us. We can chose to live unhealthy but we suffer the circumstances. The good thing is that its never too late to make a change.
Gods will is always working for our best and has an intelligence we may never understand. God created such a perfect Universe, from the planets to the beautiful eco system, it all works together perfectly.
When it came to my love life my ego use to trip me up. I wanted to be in relationships when I needed to be single. This caused so much pain and suffering that I finally surrendered to what the present moments were. Learning to let go of what wasn’t possible at the time was such a gift. Yes I could force my way into a situation sometimes but it never turned out pretty. That guy I had an amazing first date who never called me, probably bad timing. It had little to do with me. He may have really liked me but he just wasn’t ready or his heart was with someone else. By letting go you stop setting yourself up for disappointment. There are green lights just like there are red flags, we just need to know what they are.
Trusting I am exactly where I needed to be with my body was also another obstacle for me growing up. I would get so depressed when I gained weight or when I suffered an injury but the universe was showing me valuable lessons in that pain. I was pretty stubborn at first and would let it fill my mind with negative self talk and that turned into negative actions. One bad day or even bad month doesn’t have to be the end, it can be a new beginning (if I chose to see it that way). Again, everything is left to our choices and the timing. Me choosing to start this challenge was my new beginning. I am exactly where I need to be but I also know I can get back to where I use to be regarding my weight. All these extra pounds I added these last couple years were my comfort weight and they served a purpose for that time in my life, however, now I am in a different place, a better place.
With that said, I am happy to announce another 2 lbs weight loss. I am trusting the process.
I have lost a total of 10lbs since I started my fitness challenge 10 weeks ago. It has been a slow weight loss but it has also been very sustainable and in perfect timing. Its when we let our ego get in the way and try to rush weight loss that it has short lived results or no results at all.
I truly believe the Universe works perfectly and the sooner you do too the sooner you can start receiving all the good it has for you.
This weeks workout recap:
I am still eating 1,300-1,600 calories depending on how hard my workout was that day. The worst thing I can do is starve myself or stress about my weight loss–this wouldn’t help my hormone equilibrium. Remember sleep, stress, exercise intensity and our diet all convert into weight loss or weight gain. Figure out what works best for you and trust the timing. Cheers to another week friends!
