Update: March - Week 1

First week of March has come to an end and, I'm down 2lbs. on the scale. I'm really happy with how this week went! 

While each meal wasn't perfect, I feel like I did a good job at balancing my plates overall. I went out to dinner with a friend (+ dessert), had a breakfast date with my husband, and I still lost weight this week! 

I managed to get in some extra activity this week which helped the balance of everything, as well. We had a night at the trampoline park and most days in general I was able to keep my steps between 7,000-10,000.

On the evening of Ash Wednesday, I felt called to give up fear for Lent. That's a daunting thing to give up, personally. At first, I was unsure how to go about following through with such a thing. 

Fear isn't tangible, and it's hardwired into our human-ness. I don't think fear is something that will ever fully go away and, I don't think that's the point. Instead, God is showing me that while fear will never fully go away, it is something that I must constantly give away -- to Him.

After a week of diving into The Word and being more faithful in prayer, I can already see how God is helping me overcome fear in some situations that were starting to feel a little hopeless. God is so faithful to transform us in ways beyond our own ability!

March - Week 1, was a good one!
