I just feel like I fall off the wagon so often. I know that I am not as bad as I was because each time I am trying to get back on faster. As I sit here trying to pull myself up I am evaluating why I fall. I think I have come up with some ideas.

1. This is the main one I think. My quiet time doesn't happen. My focus is on issues of the day and not on Him. The time I normally spend in God's word it taking up by other non important things Because we all know He is the most important thing there is and all else pales in His light.

2. I try to fit to much into my day and get tired. When I am tired I have no motivation or will power. therefore any food in sight I eat.

3. I lack planning. When I don't have a plan things fall apart.

so today as I look at my tracking and realize that I have reached my fat and half of my calories and it is only 8:00 in the morning I am going to take some time to plan and read my Bible. I will not give up my health and life depends on it.

Yesterday I went shopping with my daughter for my dress for her wedding. In my mind I had the perfect dress. Well we sere walking in a store and there it was. I tried it on and it fit. My daughter said it was perfect, but in the mirror all I saw was this fat ugly person. I came home and ate chips and dip.

Today is a new day and I will get back at it and I can look great in that dress.

So today my goals are:

1. track everything
2.10 min. of exercise.
3.15 min. of quiet time
4 Spend 20 minutes a day cleaning something
5. measure my food.

    You have a good plan in place - keep it in sight and check off each one as you accomplish it. Then give yourself a big pat on the back - you deserve it! Have a good day and congrats for finding that beautiful dress. Not always an easy task. :) emoticon

    *sigh* Its so hard to stay on track. I've been so off-base this past 2 weeks and having real trouble getting back on. I think my biggest problem is that when my late-start classes began they changed my schedule and it messed up my workouts, and since then I haven't done well in that department, and everything else kind of hinges on my exercising. If I would get up early and knock it out, I could do it, but I am NOT a morning person and its so hard to make myself get up early. Even when I do get up early I don't want to go exercise..Hopefully we'll both get it together soon before any more time passes.

    I have found planning my meals before I eat them keeps me a bit more on track and mindful of what I will eat rather than what is just around to eat. Your goals for today are great.....keep pushing forward on your journey. I'm sure the perfect dress will look great on you.....don't be so hard on yourself. This is really one of those old habits we need to get beyond. I know I have to work on this one too. emoticon
