There is a song that's really hitting my heart today by Jason Castro (remember the dreadlock guy from American Idol?) It goes like this:
This is only a mountain You don't have to find your way around it Tell it to move, it'll move Tell it to fall, it'll fall This is only a moment You don't have to let your fear control it Tell it to move, it'll move Tell it to fall, it'll fall
So true! Every day when I go to work out it feels like Mt. Everest and I forgot my hiking boots. Yet, I make it through. Every day I look for work and am frustrated and discouraged, but then I'm so grateful for this time at home. Our loving heavenly father cares so much, and in these times that I'm weak both physically and emotionally, songs like the one above remind me that I am going to be ok. So many things in my life I would not have the courage to tackle if I didn't know that I'm not doing it alone. If you're reading this - be encouraged! He cares for you like that too! :)
My name is Kat and I'm a single mom of two young adults. I have not always been overweight but after having children and going through some personal hurdles, let it get out of control. My philosophy about eating is this: Eat real food. Real eggs, butter, veggies. Eliminating processed junk as much as possible. I eat butter, not faux butter product because I believe my body can better process real food rather than chemicals.
