Why are temptations so.... TEMPTING!?!?!?!?
Monday, February 18, 2013
So I know the whole reason for temptations are to tempt you to do what you shouldn't do. But why when I know I shouldn't do it, do I still give in to my body's wants?!?!
A little clarification... My birthday is this week. My brother just had his. Our family went out to celebrate at.... wait for it...... FAMOUS DAVE'S!!!! With all their fatty goodness, greasy flavor and downright devilishly good sauces.... I knew what I had to do. But it wasn't going to be easy. I would have to go in there, look through the menu, pass all of the yummy, delicious, fatty, calorie-filled platters, and look at the salads... The mission, in the end, was a failure. For one, the restaurant does not have the nutritional facts of anything, and two, my phone wasn't getting wi-fi so I couldn't check out the calories of any of the meals.
So to cut this sorrowful story short... I gave in, had what I knew I shouldn't have, and my meal ended up costing me a grand total of 1,455 calories... And I woke up the next morning with a 4 pound weight gain...
Again, why, when I knew what I was doing was wrong, did I go ahead and give in to calorie filled meal???? Simple... It's human desire. We desire to do what we know we shouldn't. How do we fix it? Prayer and strict determination. I'm done falling into temptation. I want to change. And I'll be praying for God to help me, and anyone else who has come to this decision, make this lifestyle change.
