Day 8: The Real Me and Positive Talk
Monday, June 17, 2013
Today is weigh-in day, I have something to be positive about. I have lost 3 pounds this week. I am so glad that I decided to follow the plan. I have exercised every day and kept my calorie intake in the given parameters. The results were better than I expected! Yea Me!
I have to be careful. This is where I usually slack off. But I cannot and will not. I am worth the effort no matter how difficult it gets and no matter how tired I am. The truth is, if I am tired it is not because of too much exercise. Either I did not get enough sleep or I ate more carbs than I was supposed to. So, I will stick to the plan. I MUST stick to the plan.
Today starts Fine Arts Day Camp for me. I ate my breakfast at home like usual. My issue may be lunch. There is no refrigerator for me to use so I might have to eat what they provide, whatever that is. But I shall use my mobile app to keep my calories in check. Just because they provide a certain food, does not mean I have to eat it. If it has too much fat, I will refuse it. I must stay focused because I am worth it.
My Bible reading today was Philippians 3. That is the one of my favorite chapters for perseverance. It talks about pressing toward the goal. "I forget the past and look forward to what lies ahead. I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God, through Jesus Christ, is calling me." My heavenly Father wants me to be obedient in every area of my life. My biggest obstacle is food and exercise. So, I will keep moving. I will not stop until I reach my goal. And even then, I will continue to work at being healthy through my diet and activity level.
The only way I can be victorious is to follow the plan. God's plan. He loves me so much. He would never, ever, ask me to do something that would hurt me. He is on my side and wants the BEST for me. I have decided to focus on Him. I will read His Word, listen for His Voice, and obey. What could be better?
