Why is it I struggle with commitment?  I have such good intentions.  Ok, so this week, I walked on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday.  I was supposed to walk every day.  But that didn't happen.  Oh I intended to do that.  But somehow the busyness of my life got in the way. 

A facebook friend posted to me that you make time for what you want to do.  Hmmmm...  Perhaps he is right.  I think next week I'll schedule time in to walk.  My puppies and I are on a schedule for the rest of the day so why not get used to scheduling a walk from 7:30-8:30.  I think that is a great idea.

As far as eating, I'm trying to cut back on sweets.  I think I've decided I'm a sugar addict.  If I have one cookie, I need the whole bag.  If I eat one Krispy Kreme, I eat seven.  Especially those Hot Doughnuts Now glazed ones.   I just cannot seem to turn it off.  So I ordered this book, Overcoming Sugar Addiction, by Karly Randolph Pitman.  I don't know I just saw it on Amazon and decided I would give it a try.  If someone else has struggled with this same thing and they have had success then it couldn't hurt for me to find out how.

I've decided that my lack of commitment goes further than just my eating and exercising habits.  Every week I commit fresh to prayer and bible time each day.  I'll start out fairly well and stay on track but then again before I turn around the week has gotten away from me and I forgot to read and pray.

I saw this picture somewhere on the web and couldn't agree more with it! 

It's time I stop giving up!  

I've decided that along with my walking/jogging each day, I'm going to try out Jillian Michaels Body Revolution.  I'm really ready for a change and I think this program might give me a kick in the pants that I need.  Let's hope I can commit to it for 90 days.  Actually, forget that.   I am making a promise that I WILL commit for 90 days.  I really need to quit making excuses.  

And while I'm talking about commitment, I'm reminded of this scripture:

 Psalm 37:5-6 
Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this:
He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,
the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.

So today, I'm committing my way to the Lord.  In so doing, I trust that He will make me shine like the noonday sun!    Would you commit your way as well?  We can do this together!  Just decide to make a commitment today!   Have a great weekend.
