So this weekend has been full of some rather unhealthy choices, I went from a week of eating salads and fruits and vegetables to hot dogs, mac n cheese, potato salad, cake and candy, chinese food, etc... Not the healthiest of food choices i could have made and I paid for it today. I woke up this evening to go to work with a nasty case a heart burn and my stomach was churning like mad. I realized that I hadn't had any heartburn that I can recall all week! Now that's amazing because I sometimes suffer from frequent bouts of that discomfort. Now there is a motivation. Next time I'm thinking that downing a hot dog or two I'll ask my stomach if its up for some indigestion, if that idea does not appeal to me, maybe the hot dog wont either, well maybe a little anyway.
I also made a few decent choices this weekend. My sister and I went to the drive in and instead of hitting up the concession stand we decide to bring our own. We did share an order of crab rangoon (not the best I know but yum-o!) but we also brought some watermelon, rice cake and natural popcorn with olive oil instead of butter. Also spent Saturday running around with kids and flying kites (which is actually more exercise than one would think, especially when it keeps crashing to the ground.)
All in all not bad.
And I also just want to thank Jesus for the wonderful weekend of friends and family and laughter, and continue to ask Him to be in the center of what I am trying to do, of trying to get healthier. Help me Jesus not to let weight-loss and diet consume my thoughts, but to take it one day at time. I know that when I make You my focus Jesus, You take care of the rest, because that is how much You love me and You desire good things for my life and I believe that includes and healthier life. Thank You Jesus.
