Under Control?

If you've been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL) lately, you'll know that I've been discussing the topic of sin.

Well, I thought I might take a break from this, so that I could tell you about what my week was like.  Hopefully, you won't mind this break from ministry entries!

This week was my first week back at the gym, working out with my friend M and fellow exercisers!  As you are probably aware, if you've been a reader for a while, M had surgery, so her gym was closed for just over two (2) weeks.

I must say that even though M's gym was closed, I didn't stop exercising! 

In fact, I increased stretching and what I call my in-apartment exercise, immensely.  And, of course, since the pool in my complex finally opened, I was able to use the pool daily.

For anyone who doesn't know, I enjoy working out in the pool.  I can exercise without having pain overwhelm me; at least until later, once I'm out of the pool! 

My friend across the hall, K always comments regularly, on how committed I am to working out in the pool.  She's surprised that I rarely seem to ever just relax in the pool and visit with others.  Well, that's me!

Some of you may be wondering why I am working out so much.  Well, firstly, it's because I can, now.

Finally, I became able to move my neck, shoulders and back more freely, about 29 years after the major collision I was involved in.  While I may never be 100% fully healed, I can now work out, where I couldn't do much of anything, before.

For this, I will be eternally grateful!  To God first, and also to my chiropractor!

Of course, I am trying to not just get my weight down and become physically stronger, but I am mainly trying to reverse the type 2 Diabetes I have. 

Believe it or not, when I work out, it does help my sugar level.  Even better, when I work out in the pool, my sugar level lowers even more!

So, it's no wonder I love working out in the pool!

Thank You Father, for giving me enough of a measure of healing to be able to try to get my physical life somewhat under control.


Until next time...
