WLW: I have (almost) finished the race

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."  2 Timothy 4-7

A couple of months ago I started a 6 week, "medium" intensity challenge on EA Sports Active.  I completed it in just 4 weeks, felt great about it, felt real difference in how my clothes fit, and couldn't wait to start the next 6 week challenge!

I am currently 5 exercise days away from completing the "high" intensity 6 week challenge.  This time I have been plagued by unexplained pain, infection, and an allergic reation to an antibiotic.  On top of that, I just want to quit SO BAD!  I am sick of the music, I am sick of the lady's computerized voice, I'm sick of the exercises.  I WANT TO QUIT!!

But, I am called to fight the good fight.  I'm called to finish the race (or the 6 week Active challenge!).  I'm called to keep the faith.  God did not design me to be a quitter.  I can do this.


  1. Amen! You can do this! And you have encouraged me in the process. I hope these last 5 days pass quickly & successfully! Thanks for joining Weight Loss Wednesday again...even if I did give a hint, hint ;)

  2. You are SO close! Keep on pushing! Think of how awesome it will feel this time next week when you have accomplished your goal. Stopping by from Weight-Loss Wednesday! BTW, your kids are adorable!

  3. I hope you finished your challenge. I have never been able to do that but I think it was simply because I would take the days off and then not come back. I don't know how many times I restarted that challenge! I am so proud of you for your first success and hopefully, but I am sure you did, your second. You are an inspiration. And Btw, I love your new header.
