Consistency

consistencyConsistency…this is difficult for me. I have the best intentions when I start something new but I can’t stick with it.

A few years ago I bought the Insanity workout DVD’s and consistently followed the schedule for 2 1/2 weeks. Unfortunately, due to “poor form” I injured my ankle so I had to take a break. I never got back into it after that.

The problem affects all areas of my life. Family, work, church, friends, etc. I think deep down I know what the problem is.

Self-control.

Why is it so DIFFICULT to control ourselves? Maybe that’s why life tends to be harder for me. The Bible says we are unprotected due to our lack of self-control.

“Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control.” Proverbs 25:28 (NIV)

That makes sense. If I controlled my impulsive desires and actually did the things that were beneficial to a healthy lifestyle being consistent would be easier.
