In life everything is measured in pluses and minuses. Like 10 being the best and 1 being the worst. In my life that is so true. I do have 10 days. Those are days where I have a real love for life, a day where my workouts are real good, I have eaten within my calorie range and God is right beside me all the way. Then I have those days where my day is an 6. I may not have eaten as good as I could,I got my workout in but God is still there with me. I also have days where at the end when I am in bed thanking God for my day I can't give it a number because it was so wonderful and so busy I didn't have time to think about it. And then there are days like today where I would give it a -2. It started when I woke up with a headache and not feeling well. A day where I could of just stayed in bed all day as emotionally I was not doing so good. But I knew that I couldn't. I had a staff meeting/bible study to go to and bills in town to walk to go pay. As I was taking my shower I asked God to give me the strength to handle today. Of couse He did. I was able to walk to town to pay those bills and do that staff meeting/bible study. I was able in the evening to lift weights for 55 minutes and I did eat within my calorie range as well. I feel very good about all of this inspite of it being a -2 day. In my past a -2 day would of not looked like that. I would of gotten up and eaten my way through the kitchen before I left for town. I may of even said "screw the whole thing", stayed in bed and eaten my way through the kitchen. So even with it being a -2 day I feel so proud of myself for making those good choices. I am grateful that I had God beside me in this day. I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me.......how true even in my -2 day.
