Hello! Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here.
I have set a few goals for myself that are a little lofty and I would like them to last a little more than a few days.
Dieting started on December 14th, 2020 when I checked the scale and saw I had hit 201 Pounds/ 91 Kilos.
I am proud to say that with careful calorie counting on the Lose It application, I am 189.2 Pounds/85.7 Kilos.
Natasha, my neighbor was unaware of the plan and made us what I understand to be Russian honey cake. Fortunately, I had saved enough calories to tackle my share. Thank you, Natasha!
The decision to lose weight for mobility and health’s sake will help me toward my goal of walking 50 miles in 24 hours later on in the year. It will be an amazing way to break in my shoes further.
Those are fun goals, but This is what the Bible has to say about the matter.
For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. 1 Timothy 4:8 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/1ti.4.8.KJV
In that light, I am reading more Bible and trying to have a prayerful mindset throughout the day.
You, my WordPress readers, are a digital family and friends, but God requires direct contact and I need to spend more time with him. Pretty soon, I will be part of a digital technology fast and refrain from posting for a short time to reinforce my commitment to stated goals. I will keep you informed as to the timeframes.
For those of you that prayed for my relative with Covid, thank you. I have several additional relatives that require tests and we are isolating ourselves to ensure that If we have been in contact with the virus, we are not spreading it. Some of them have symptoms.
I believe I contracted Covid before it was widely known in January 2020, but I will never know for sure. Whatever it was proved to be exceptionally vile.
My symptoms included a high pulse, difficulty breathing, a very sore throat, and a fever that lasted about 5 days. Perhaps it was something else, but if it was Covid, I do now wish it on anyone else.
I contacted my chain of command and left a message to the emergency hotline for my job assignment and am waiting for them to call me back.
I have been getting tested every week with an advanced test and have been swabbed daily with a slightly less accurate method, so I am not too worried that I exposed anyone. Everything has been done with an abundance of caution.
Fortunately for us here at Willow Manor, we have beans, rice, and a little meat tucked away in the freezer for such an occasion.
