Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly and whoever sows generously will also reap generously 2 Corinthians 9:6
Are you growing impatient with your efforts? I can’t tell you how often I hear, “I had a great week and I only lost a pound?!?!” Or, “I had 5 really good days (and 2 not so good ones) and the scale didn’t budge!” 🙁 DARN!
Friends…you cannot reap and sow in the same season. Did you know a bamboo plant doesn’t show any evidence of growth in the first 4 years? During the 5th year it can grow 3 feet per day!
Take a good look at what you’ve sown. Is it enough to accomplish long term growth? If the number is high…the number of healthy eating days, the number of minutes spent burning calories or the extra few minutes taken to journal your food and plan your meals…then your long term plan should be solid. If you look at your seeds and realize that perhaps you short changed the healthy foods for garbage, skipped the workouts on more than one occasion or decided to hang out instead of hanging in at the gym, then perhaps you should take inventory and plant some more good seeds this week?
Take the time to write down five seeds to plant in effort to reap what you sow. Maybe these will get you started…
Journal everything you eat for a week.
Journal minutes spent sweating.
Make a grocery list that is full of greens and leans and veggies and fruits!
