**looking to the Lord for our strength, eating healthy and working on being fit and active- with a made-up mind, we no longer entertain ideas of stopping all together or just giving up but instead begin each day with new resolve to give it our best shot.  then one day you realize, hey you do feel better and you can do this thing. right on!
grace and peace,
p.s. just found this awesome song and wanted to share it with you all.  the Lord is the only reason i ever have a made-up mind about anything.
 Ephesians 6:11-13
A MADE UP MIND
‘I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed. The die has been cast. The decision has been made. I have stepped over the line. I won’t look back, let up, slow down or back away.
My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I’m finished and done with selfish living, sight walking, small planning, “smooth knees,” colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap giving and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, pity or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised,
regarded or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk with His patience, live by prayer and labor with His power.
My face is set; my gait is sure; my goal is heaven; my road is narrow; my way is rough, my companions are few; my Guide is reliable; my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed.
I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity or meander in the maze of mediocrity because I have been sustained by Christ.
I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, spoken up for the cause of Christ.
I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I must go till all know, and work till He stops me. And when He comes for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me. My banner is clear. I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed.’
