"Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body."
-1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Way back when, I used to post monthly goals here on the blog. (See here & here). And then I didn't post them anymore. Because honestly, they were the same things over and over. Lather, rinse, repeat.
I was recently talking with one of my sisters who is currently training for a 5K about faith and fitness. And the fact that our bodies are temples. We were bought with a high price. And I think a lot about being a good and responsible steward with our resources - with our finances and our time and our relationships. But when it comes to my own body - it's easy to put off regular fitness (I'm not talking running for miles and miles here...just basic regular exercise) and healthy eating (again, not strict and super restrictive dieting...have you seen most of the recipes on here?! Just making good decisions.)
So, this week at the grocery store, I picked up more fruit for snacks. We always pack fruit in our lunches, but I thought this was an easy and simple start to keep more fruit around here for snacking at home.
And I've been browsing Pinterest for quick and simple workouts that are feasible for me to do. By feasible, I mean easy enough that I can convince myself that I have time to do them after work and in the midst of the rest of the calendar. So far, I've been starting on a couple below.
