(Cue the tears as I throw away my pint of ice cream.)
If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you might have seen me posting about the Mama Shred. I'm joining some other moms who want to grow in being healthy, led by an incredibly encouraging coach.
I can unashamedly (but with a little bit of a cringe) admit that I am totally out of my comfort zone.
I am not an exerciser. My face turns beet red and is covered in sweat after ten jumping jacks. I'm comfortable leaving exercise to the people who actually have willpower. I'm comfortable eating whatever I'd like. I'm comfortable eating when I feel stressed. I'm comfortable not challenging myself. (And let's just remember what happened the last time I started "working out.")
But I've felt several little nudges from God over the past few months to challenge myself in the area of health. And to challenge myself in the area of relying on HIM, and not on chocolate. (I know that sounds silly, but it's often true. I find myself turning to a jar of nutella instead of going to my Father who knows and cares about all of my needs. And who won't give me a sugar high afterwards.)
In all seriousness, I am excited but genuinely nervous. I honestly don't know if I can do this.
Maybe pink workout clothes from the kid's section will help?
