Jonnie Goodmanson is a Christian teacher, preacher and Holy Yoga guru at our church. She is a powerful voice leading people into a more whole-bodied life of worship. People get set free when she opens her mouth or puts pen to paper. I hope to share more of her thoughts in the future.
An old ghost came for me today! I haven’t done much HIIT/resistance training since March dropped it’s bomb on us. Instead, I’ve been doing a lot of yoga, walking the dogs, and running with minimal resistance training peppered in. And you know what’s funny? I am stronger and more fit than I’ve ever been. Because I stopped chasing it!
But, this morning I attended a high intensity, kick your butt resistance training class. And you know whose body remembered all the times she tried to beat it up to get fit? This girl! You know whose endocrine system got a hit of the “old self” and like it? This girl!
All the old thought patterns came back. Restricting my eating, making sure to get into classes like these 4 days a week, beat myself up, beat myself up, beat myself up!
Thankfully I am healed enough to recognize that those are lies and potholes that will NEVER bring me happiness or contentment. I will NOT worship my body.
Recalibrate. Find TRUE North. Start again. This time further ahead than last time.
I LOVE Grace!!!
