#WeekendCoffeeShare (January 10, 2021)

Hi lovely blog friends! I’m so excited to be joining in on this week’s #WeekendCoffeeShare. It is newly hosted by Natalie and I’m so glad to see so many people have joined in already. I really need to write my coffee share posts earlier in the future, but oh well. At least I haven’t had my last cup of coffee for the day yet.

If we were having coffee, I’d share that the weather is pretty good here. At least for winter. It does drizzle a bit every now and again and yesterday the pavements were a bit slippery from the ice. I thankfully could still go for a walk.

If we were having coffee, I would proudly tell you that I got in nearly twice as many steps over the past week as my sister. I also broke my active heartrate zone minutes record, which was at 405 for the week of November 9, 2020 and is now already at 426. I plan on going for another walk later this evening, so I’ll add more to it.

If we were having coffee, I’d say that I’m planning on keeping a food journal from tomorrow on. I for now don’t intend on sharing it here and I’m not intending on consciously changing anything about my eating as of yet. It’s just so that I can be completely honest about the foods I eat and how I feel about my choices. I have some type of overeater’s journal and it appeals to me.

If we were having coffee, I’d like to ask my fellow Christian bloggers to pray for me. I’m struggling a bit with my faith in relation to my bad habits, including overeating. Basically, I’m stuck on the rules of Overeaters Anonymous and the like, such as three meals a day and nothing in between. I feel resistance to admitting I’m not in control, even though I know I’m not. I may not be making as unhealthy choices in my life as I was a few months ago, but I really need to credit God for this and relinquish my control over to Him.

In a similar way, I’m struggling with admitting I’m a sinful human being. Remember when, a few months ago, I wrote about grief? I felt like I was intensely wicked on some deep level then. Then I learned about Bobby Schuller and his book You Are Beloved and I wanted so badly to believe it, but the enemy keeps telling me I don’t need Jesus for this. I am struggling to realize that, before I believed in Jesus, I was stuck on feeling wicked. Please, if you’re a Christian, pray for my continued spiritual formation.

What’s been going on in your life?

  1. I am glad you are doing well. its been hectic on this side of the pond. Work has been busy (just got back to work from holiday recess). Settling in with the new condo. Working on some personal issues. Cats are fine, general health is good.

  2. I will continue to include you in my prayers. Remember that change takes time, and you have plenty of time. You can be patient with yourself. ::smile::

    This week, I continue to take it easy. Catching up on some of my letter writing, and letting the poetry writing sit on the sidelines as long as it cares to. Taking care of myself.

  3. Your weather sounds a lot nicer than ours. It is freezing here, some places have had snow over the last week. Well done with all of your steps.
    Good luck with the food journal.
    Sending love and hugs. I hope things are better soon with your bad habits. x

  4. A food journal sounds like a good idea to keep track of things a bit.
    I pray for you and I will continue to do so. 🙂 I know it’s difficult and even quite confusing sometimes when beginning your faith journey. But I’m sure Jesus is very close to you all this time and helping you as you’re trying to progress.
