I decided yesterday to stop using SparkCoach. It is a good resource, for sure, and cheaper than Weight Watchers, and has a lot of really good information. However, I think it's too much for me right now. Rather than being concerned about following the action steps I need to do just one thing...quit eating so much!
I entered all my food today, for the first time in a while. Sometimes I don't enter what I eat because it's either too difficult to figure out what I ate (because I ate out, or we had a lunch at church or something) or because I've eaten so much I already know I'm over calories so I don't even bother.
So, okay, here's my own action step for tomorrow. I already have established a pretty good pattern of eating only when sitting down at the table or counter. (And that worked all by itself for a while until I started to sit down at the counter to eat brownies, or Pop-Tarts--Pop Tarts? Really? I've never really liked Pop-Tarts! Why now? Anyway...)
Wow. That parenthetical statement could have been made into a paragraph itself. Back to what I was saying...
I will eat at the table or counter. Hmmm...maybe it should be just the table. The counter is too tempting because the food is right there in the kitchen. Okay.
I will eat mindfully, planning my food.
I will enjoy what I eat.
I will not obsess about food. God will supply all my needs and I don't have to be thinking about what I will eat. That's what the pagans seek after! "Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you." Matthew 6:33
There was something else I was going to do, but I think that's enough for now.
