interestingly enough, i came across a blog today that gave me one of those “AH -HA!” moments. you see, i’ve been in a rut lately, at least for the past 2 weeks. i had re-lost the 6 pounds i had regained and had been doing great with journaling what i ate and staying within my calorie range.
and then i slowly got off track. i began just trying to keep track in my mind of what i was eating all day long, and though i did pretty well with that, by doing it that way, it was much easier for me to be careless with my eating habits.
you see, by not writing down every thing i ate, i wasn’t seeing with my own eyes what i was putting into my body, therefore, i wasn’t consistently eating healthy. now don’t get me wrong, i certainly don’t think that everyone needs to track their food intake in order to be a healthy eater, BUT i know i do! one thing that weight watchers has taught me is self-control and discipline in my eating. and i need the accountability of that food journal.
so, as i read this blog today that was brand new to me, i was totally inspired by this gal (who amazingly enough has lost over 100 pounds!!) and was even a bit convicted of my laziness lately in my eating habits. not only that, but i have been grumbling and complaining lately that “i need to get back to exercising” and “why won’t these abs tone up faster”and “why this?” and “why that”….but i haven’t been doing anything about it. just complaining.
well, after reading this gals blog today, i have decided that it’s time for me to stop complaining and get back to doing what i need to do! i need to stop whining about these abs and work on them. i need to stop talking about my inconsistency in my eating habits and be consistent.
and most importantly, i need to allow God to be my Strength and my Fulfillment. i need to remind myself that only God can fill the needs that i am trying to fill with food.
so, as the holidays approach, i am planning to keep up with eating within my calorie range. even though it’s easy for me to just think, “Oh, it’s the holidays, i can have just one more…”. i don’t want to wake up on January 1st and realize that i gained 10 pounds just because i wanted one more!
do you have any plans for how to eat healthy during the holidays?
