Deuteronomy 5:7 - “You must not have any other god but me."
I messed up. I worked out but not much. Just enough to get by, but I could have done so much more.
I have been recognizing for a long time now that one of my "gods" was my stomach. I think about food and how it feels, and what I'm going to eat, etc. before so much else, even before I pray in the mornings. The Lord has been revealing this to me for a few months now, but I didn't want to admit it to myself.
Well, yesterday, it came to a head. I knew that because I didn't work out in the morning that I would have to last night. Problem was, I didn't pack a snack bag like I normally do, and so by the time I left work, I was famished. And so, all I could think about on my way home was what I wanted for dinner.
I wanted to workout, I even planned which workout I was going to do, but I also knew that if I exercised on a full stomach, my best efforts would not come to the fore. Nevertheless, I stopped to get something to eat and then tried to workout. Didn't make it through the entire workout, in fact, barely made it to 10 minutes.
I fulfilled my obligation, but with a heavy heart. GOD forgive me...
