The Need for Self-Discipline

         1 Corinthians 9:24

24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize

      Hebrews 12:11

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

We have all been there before, the point in life where we know we need change.  We say to our selves, tomorrow I will eat better but today that cookie looks too good!  Or we convince ourselves we don’t have self-control, we just can’t help it.  We even go as far to blame our family lineage citing obesity.

The truth is we all have self-control in us.  We just need to activate it, to set our minds that change is needed & there is no room for failure when it comes to our health.  The instant gratification we get when we “treat our selves” to a sweet is not worth the derailment it causes.  Let’s face it America is in trouble in many areas besides our health for lack of self-control.

-- During the six weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year's, adults gained about 0.8 pounds, according to a 2000 study published in Nutrition Review.  What the same study found was that, 14% of overweight and obese individuals gained more than five pounds during the holiday.

It really comes down to what people do day in & day out.  We must have self-discipline and set our minds to run the race to get the prize, our health!   Truth is you are able to exercising   self-control; you need to remind yourself daily that you are able.  Take a few minutes to write a few bible verses that deal with discipline, I like to use Bible Gateway look up when making my list.  Then read these daily out loud so that God’s word which is truth will impact your daily life.

As someone who has struggled in the past to keep weight off, I am fully aware of the challenges during Christmas & New Years.  That is why I got involved with Awareness Life.  All the products are Cold Pressed so the vital nutrients are not “cooked” away.  They are 70% organic, no GMO & vegetarian.  The Truffles are handy to have when you attend those Holiday parties where everyone in indulging & bulging!!  I never go out without them.
