Hello Monday! Week 2 Day 1

Monday, May 06, 2013

We had a great opening weekend of the musical I am in- "Once upon a Mattress." It is a version of the Princess and the Pea. It was so much fun. So this week I don't have practice until Thursday night so I can get back to my healthy habits.

Got up early spent my time with God and got my P90X workout done. I am going to alternate the P90X strength training videos with running and biking.

As I have said before I am reading the book "Made to Crave" by Lysa TerkHeurst. Today I read chapter 4. It was all about accountability and having people to be accountable to. I am doing this study with my mom and 3 sisters so they are who I am accountable to first and then I am also keeping myself accountable on here. Some of my favorite points from this chapter were
1) 1 Peter 5:7-8 "Cast your anxiety on him because he cares for you. Be self controlled and alert."
2) "If we forget to be self-controlled and alert , we are prime targets for Satan to usher us right away from the new standards we've set in our life."
3) "Be aware and be on guard. Know that these are devised schemes to lure you away from your commitments."

These made me aware that this struggle - even the struggle of what to eat and when is a "devised scheme" of the enemy to keep me off track. To get me to fail in my attempts to be healthy. To keep my eyes on myself and not on God. I had a sort of break through last night. I was thinking of the MOPS (Mothers Of PreSchoolers) meeting that is this morning and feeling sad and lonely because I was a part of the group last year and not a part this year. I realized that that desire to belong wouldn't be filled by this meetingn but it would only truly be filled by God. So we (God and I) talked about it and that feeling of loneliness and wanting to belong was filled with Him!!!

Sunday's stats
1) God time -NO- led to some crabbiness later on emoticon
2) Freggies - 3
3) Water - 4 cups
4) 5-6 small meals - 4
5) Exercise - None

I tried the 80/20 rule out yesterday and let my self eat some unhealthy foods. Back at it today!!

    Keep at it Elsa :-)

I too love the verse reminding us to cast all anxiety on Him. Even a more favorite of mine, the way it is worded ... Luke 12:6-7

Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God.
Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Have a great Tuesday ahead. Exceed your goals !! emoticon
