    What I Learned – Days 24 – 30

    Can you believe that we finished the challenge? It has been long and hard, but I think that I have learned a lot about health and happiness in the process. I will never be perfect, and I must accept that. If you look back on the days of this challenge there were many times where I had to say that I didn’t or couldn’t do an element of the challenge. I am learning to realize that is okay. To be limited is to be human. Learning to rest in His grace has brought me so much joy. Accountability is key to following through. There were so many times that I…

    Why I Don’t Do Challenges – Days 8-10

    I was derailed a bit by dealing with my emotions after being plagiarized. Thankfully, because of the wonderful blogging community, that has been taken care of, and the plagiarized work has been taken down. I realized that I was still going to need to write about my 30 Day Health Challenge. My whole body groaned. I know that it is difficult to form habits, but I also felt that I needed to work through the emotions that I had from having some of my best work stolen from me. This made me realize why I don’t do the 30 Days to Better Abs or 30 Day Fasting Challenges. My body…

    Resting in Grace – Day 5 Health Challenge

Called In Sick – I hate doing this, but I swallowed my pride. I was having severe myoclonic jerks, fainted, and had to crawl to the phone to call my boss to tell her I…
