Well I "fell off the wagon" so to speak this weekend. I'm not going to make excuses for myself, it is what it is. I made some bad choices, ate some deliciously unhealthy food and there is no taking it back now. I'm not going to go into the details of what I ate, I could have made better choices but I chose not to. I could easily start beating myself up about it and worrying about whether or not I ruined all that I had accomplished from the previous week of making lots of healthy choices, but you know what, I'm not really too worried. Sure I wish I had eaten healthier. I certainly feel better when I eat better and the cost for the immediate satisfaction I feel when I reach for that "feel good" unhealthy food is not feeling so good lateron. But tonight (I'm working overnight) I can make healthy choices, tomorrow is a new day with new chances, new choices, and new descisions. The bible tells us not to worry about yesterday, yesterday is gone. And not to worry about tomorrow for todays troubles are sufficent in themselves. Who knows what choices I'll make tomorrow, tonight I have enough choices to make, will I drink water or reach for a can of soda? Will I eat the yogurt and fruit I brought or will I raid the vending machine? You know what... I think tonight is going to be a good night.
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." Matt 6:34
