I've been on SparkPeople now for almost 5 full weeks. When I started, I decided to buy a box of 3 Musketeers at Sams since they were lower in fat and I love chocolate! Well, right away, I felt that it was TOO many calories and I wasn't really interested in eating them for the last 5 weeks--they just sat in the box. Well, today I was WAY under my calories for the day so I thought, "well, I guess I could eat that candy bar", even though I wasn't CRAVING chocolate at all! That was a HUGE mistake! I felt absolutely horrid afterwards and thought I was going to throw up!
It rained all day and finally stopped at 4:15. I quickly grabbed my walking shoes and thought if I went for my 3 mile walk that MAYBE I'd feel better. It helped a lot, but when I got home I felt very weak and thought if I ate some fruit I might feel better. I had a cup of cantaloupe w/blackberries and my stomach is FINALLY feeling better but I don't know if I'm even going to be able to eat supper since it's NOT feeling completely normal yet.
Anyway, this is pretty amazing for this chocoholic!!!!!! Instead of chocolate, I'm really, truly, and amazingly craving healtier fruits and veggies! This is TOTALLY God's grace and I stand in awe of His Spirit empowering me. Thank you, Jesus!
Rejoicing in the victories He gives--not by might nor by power BUT by MY SPIRIT...
