This Day 8 of My 'Self' Challenge
Tuesday, April 08, 2014
Yesterday was great! Got in more than 15,000 steps. Stayed in all of my suggested nutrient trackers and today I weighed in! After one week of my 'self doing-it-better challenge' I am down 1.4 pounds.
I am doing this to find what it the best plan for me. I have tried several different routes, have found some that work great for me, some not so great. I have found out that no matter how healthy some things are, if I am not in the mood to 'just eat that', I can't. Avocados are good for us and yet almost every time I buy some and plan to eat them, my money is wasted because it goes bad before I am in the mood. Don't get me wrong. I have had avocado pudding and used avocado in a lovely raw carrot/onion soup. Yum!!!
I have discovered I do not need to totally limit chocolate and sweets. Two chocolate kisses will not upset the 'plan' and can occasionally quench the sweet craving. One day of going over my total allotted calories does not mean I am on the path of destruction.
Most importantly, I am doing this for me because "I" need to do this for me. It makes me feel better about myself physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Yes, spiritually. My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. I want Him to live in a great temple!
As a man thinks in his own heart, so is he.
