Day 49 Self Control, (T-316)
Tuesday, February 18, 2014
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and SELF-CONTROL.
This was the sermon at church on Sunday. I truly do need to use self control more in my daily choices, and life. This was an eye opener for me. Now when I crave a bad food choice, I just think of that verse, and it helps me "conquer the crave".
I have just been freezing. And when I'm cold, I don't exercise well, and I don't eat well, because the healthy snacks like raw fruits and veggies are cold, and all I want is a cup of coffee & a warm pastry.
But I've been gaining back perspective this week, and doing a lot better. I haven't been doing well for the past 3 weeks. I haven't been doing horrible, but I just haven't been doing as good as I should.
I still have yet to start my walk-away the pounds. Why am I so scared? I think it's because I feel like my body is just falling apart. I think I'm afraid to do it because I'm going to see just how weak and frail I have become. But I know I've just got to do it, and little by little, I'll get stronger.
17 days, and we'll have less than 300 days left in the year. (299). That just shows how fast the year goes, and if I just stick with this, I'll be in a really good place by the end of the year.
