Days 19 an 20 of Lent and Low Carb

Thursday, March 15, 2012

I'm finding that I am just not a blogger by nature - I would rather write to people on my teams than to just blog along for undetermined people to read it. i guess I am just more on-on-one or small group that the big picture ... but I am determined to finish my course of sharing this walk with whoever....
Lent ... Today's reading was the transfiguration - This has always puzzled me because I can't figure out the significance of seeing the Old Testament law giver and prophet. I hoped to get an understanding this year, but it is still a mystery - one little comment was that Jesus came to fulfill the law and the prophets... but not sure how that applies to my life???? Anyone have a handle on this???

Low Carb - is getting better - pretty much the same issues - i want my fruit, not veggies...learning to eat what is good for me not always just what I WANT!!! Am finding it easier to do with out much grain - so all is going OK. Nothing very exciting here.

Day 18 of Lent and Low Carb

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Lent Backtracked to Mark 6 this morning and read the neatest thing in s 31 ... because of your busyness, come by yourself to a quiet deserted place and REST! Oh how precious that the Lord instructs us to do that! He wants us to rest and be alone with Him. I am so being blessed with the scripture readings this year!!

Low Carb - Learning, learning, learning - so good to be studying again and for this to be coming along - I think the couple days of not counting, just reading labels and learning were good for me. Today was the highest fiber day in months!!! I am putting it all more into practice - love those Blueberries and four bean salad was pretty tasty too. Simple foods are good for me and delicious tasting!

Food changes are doing well - now if I could just get in some good exercise to go with it!

  


Day 17 Lent and Low Carb

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Lent ..In Mark 8 Jesus looked at His disciples and rebuked them ...gulp .. I feel like maybe He did some looking at my eating last weekend and shook His head. But I feel like I have corrected with encouragement to go out and do better -

Low Carb - surprised that there are no cravings today after the splurges - but so thankful and back on track

Crazy numbers, I can not guess them at all yet - just writing down what I eat and let the computer do the figuring ...I love the way Sparks does this - i know there are other programs out there but sure am liking this learning curve.

  


Day 14,15,16 Out of Town Recouping through Sunday....

Monday, March 12, 2012

Monday starts a new week - so back in the saddle or back on the wagon after being away from home and emotions running too high to control the carbs - too new in this lifestyle to stand my ground - but was at least aware of the carb content when eating them - just not disciplined enough to decline them or get better choices - I will do better next time as i learn and prepare better ahead of time - i learned this with gluten free last year so I can do this too - I will succeed - I am not discouraged,just challenged to win the next time around.

  


Day 13 of Lent and Low Carb

Thursday, March 08, 2012

Lent : Rev.3:20 Jesus stands at the door of our heart and knows - He is a gentleman and will not enter without invitation. But if you invite Him into your life, He will come in and share a meal with you. He will abide. He will give you the abundant life He has promised and today I had the reminder again of how he orders each of our days - might not be what I planned but He was so very evident in the course of the day and the ministry He had for me to do. Oh I am so blessed to have Him abide here!!!

Low Carb is going well - actually seeing my hunger and cravings disappear! Feeling so much more "on and even keel" through my day. Actually went too low in calories so am having an extra piece of cheese after the accounting is done!
