I can’t believe I am saying this, but I want to get back into reasonable shape!

Setting goals and maintaining them is a difficult task. This is why on New Years I do not make a yearly resolution because I have broken so many. As I stated in my first post, I am kinda of miserable. I work a Job I am not passionate about and my time is so limited between the job and family that I do not have much me-time. Sounds like a Boo Hoo doesn't it?

Well I have earned the right to Boo Hoo a few times. I have given my family a pretty good financial security throughout my life because I know that is very important to me and to them. I have an upbringing like many people when it comes to not having money but because I had enjoyed life so much, I did not noticed or cared.

After many years of losing my self by just going through the motions of life I feel I need to do something about it to see if it will change my attitude and happiness. After all, I do believe that God wants us to enjoy life here on earth before we go into heaven which is said to be absolutely perfect. Growing up and into college I was in really good shape. So much so that I thought I could conqure anything. That feeling is so embedded in my memory that I crave it all the time.

Now that I am in my early 50's I know I only have another 20 years before I am too old to enjoy anything. Even at my age I can still run faster than my 12 year old boy, play sports pretty well and feel that I am not too old. The only thing is that I do have a gut (Not too big) and a few aches I use to not have.

Today I rode my excercise bike for 40 minutes at a good pace and fast walked on my treadmill with weights in my hands. I figure if I can keep this up for several months I could go from 220 lbs to 178 lbs. I want to do this everyday if possible unless I get a cold or go on a mini trip, ect.

I am going to strive to enjoy some of Gods pleasures he has put in front of me everytime I get a chance. Hopefully my life will change for the better and I will get out of this funk.

God wants you to enjoy life on Earth!

I am so tired of listening to sermons about the joy of going to heaven. Not that it is a bad thing but rather that it is more important than the earthly life I was born into and that God has given me. I know God wants me to enjoy the fruits he has given me on earth. God has placed both good and bad things in front of me and has given me a choice to choose. 

That is my position! God wants us to enjoy life on earth before going to heaven. I would give a lot of money to hear a sermon that God wants us to enjoy everything earthly he has built and to enjoy the fruits of his labor instead of when I die.

I use to Love my life so much and now am kind of miserable. I Love my wife and kids but am mainly unhappy with the way my life has turned out. I don't blame God, I blame myself for the choices I made. I have had plenty of successes but did not recognize them so could not enjoy them. 

Everyday I look for something positive and/or successful that has happened to me but some days it is so very hard. My main drive is to make sure my wife and children are secure financially so as to not need for things I never had. I also want to make sure they have a father and husband in their life that Loves them and cares for them.

This is why I can not help but believe that God wants us to take advantage of what he has set up for us on this earth.
