Now that you have reevaluated the past year, it is time to
reformulate a plan of action. Reformulate, according to google, means to
formulate again or differently. Simply put, you must, in some way,
change your old way of doing things. You cannot expect change in 2020
while doing everything the exact same way you did it in 2019. Therefore,
take your past plans and modify, revise, and tweak them until they are in
line with your expected outcome. Sometimes, it may even be necessary to
rip them apart and start anew.
And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain
upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. (Habakkuk 2:2)
1. Set realistic goals.
By February 2020, I’m going to lose 5 pounds by briskly walking for 30 minutes 3 times per week .
Starting New Year’s Day, I’m never going to miss a day of working out.
2. Set measurable goals.
I will reduce my caffeine consumption so that (by March 1st) I’m only drinking one caffeinated beverage daily.
I’m never going to drink
caffeinated beverages again.
3. Prepare ahead for dealing with setbacks.
Anytime, you’re striving
for success, understand that every day will not go according to your plan.
You may stumble. You may fall. But, whatever you do, don’t give up.
Instead of giving up and throwing in the towel - get up, brush yourself off
and start again!
Proverbs 4:7 King James Version (KJV) 7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
As of late, the Keto Diet is very common among those who want to lose weight while continuing to feel satiated between meals. For many, the Keto Diet has yielded much weight loss. As with any fad diet, it also comes with some cautions and should be carefully implemented. According to research, dieters should NOT remain on this diet long term.
Elimination of fiber-rich beans, grains, and vegetables leads to fiber deficiency which causes constipation.
The body sheds fat, water, and glycogen. As this happens the body loses sodium, potassium, and magnesium. When the body runs low on these key electrolytes, you will most likely feel sluggish - experiencing headaches and extreme fatigue.
There is ongoing research about muscle loss on the Keto Diet. Some research suggests that ketogenic dieters lose muscle even though they continue resistance training. After a workout, protein alone is LESS effective than a protein carbohydrate combination.
Symptoms that include fatigue, brain fog, dizziness, vomiting, nausea and stomach pain are not uncommon within the first couple of weeks of the Keto Diet. These symptoms clear up after a couple of weeks for those dieters who do not give up.
Too much meat (especially processed meats) and NOT enough water can lead to the formation of kidney stones and gout. This occurs when there is too much uric acid. The kidney is unable to efficiently eliminate uric acid. Many foods that are excluded from the Keto Diet such as apples, berries, cherries, pinto beans, fiber, vitamin C rich fruits and vegetables, etc. help to normalize uric acid in the body.

There are things in everyone's past that we wish we could do differently. There are things that we WOULD do differently if we could go back in time and do them over. But, that's NOT possible. Therefore, we must strive to make decisions TODAY (in the present) that we will be proud of on tomorrow (in the future). Don't just do what is right because you feel like it - do what is right because it IS right!
According to your Word, I am fearfully and wonderfully made. According to your Word, YOU perfect that which concerns me. You, God, would not lie to me because YOU are not like man. However, on today, I feel incapable, overwhelmed, unappreciated and worthless. I know that your Word says that a just man falleth seven times, but gets back up. Today, God, without your help, I have no strength or willpower to continue to get back up or try. Your Word reminds me that You have a plan for my life. But, right now, everything seems dismal, foggy and out of focus. So that I will do NO harm to myself, I ask you God to have compassion on me, manifest your power and presence, and order my steps.
In the name of Jesus, Amen.
