The I.Don’t.Care. Syndrome

Words of wisdom:
Curiosity killed the cat.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
Two wrongs don’t make a right.
Never say never.

And, tonight…
…Honesty is the best policy.

Who has trouble with the I.Don’t.Care. Syndrome?

Me, myself and I.

Many times on weekends.  Sometimes in cases of stress.

Me.  Me, the owner of the “let’s get healthy together blog.”  I have days where I just don’t care. Especially the days when I need to care the most.  Or on weekends.  Or…just because.

Yesterday and today were a couple of those days.  Those I.Don’t.Care. days.  At least I didn’t care as much as I should have.  Healthy habits down the drain.  Not all, but many.  Journal?  Nope (who wants to keep a record of wrongs, even though that’s part of the point?).  Too many sweets?  Yep.  Exercise?  Nope.  Good amount of sleep?  Nope.

The scary thing?  I.Didn’t.Care.

Yikes.

Total honesty? This is what gets me every time.  Moments where I just don’t care.  I WANT my old habits, doggone it.  They’re comfortable.  They’re easy (in the end that’s a lie, but they appear so).  And maybe that’s just who I am.

Ooh that last one is a doozy.  Good enough to repeat it.  “That’s just who I am.”

If I have to guess, that’s a lie straight from…well you know where.

Cuz a woman who doesn’t care is NOT who I am.  Who am I? I am a child of a King. The King. The King of Kings.  The Almighty.  Not only am I wonderfully made (Ps 139:14), but my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit (I Cor 6:19).  AND…and….and…and…

…in Christ I am a new creation (2 Cor 5:17).

Each day.  Each minute He works with me.  Strengthens me.  Teaches me. Loves me. Through my success and failure.

I will not give up.  I will keep on.  I will care.  I DO care.  I truly believe God’s plan for us is to take care of ourselves.  His holy temples.  His workers.  His disciples.

Tomorrow is a new day.  Next weekend is a fresh chance for success.  Because I’m not only the author of a “let’s get healthier together blog,” I’m the author of a “trytrytry again” blog.  And try I will.

A few more words of wisdom to my Challenge friends: If you stay up late writing a blog post you will lose sleep points! Good night, my friends.
