For the month of January I've been taking part in (my church s') annual prayer & fast. For the first 14 days it was no meat, bread & cake, soda pop or snacks. Water, fruit and fish with only one heavey meal per day was allowed. It is now a total fast on Wednesdays. I did very well and I'm very proud of myself .I can see & feel the results,with only a few more days to go the blessings that will follow will be there for all to see.
"There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able ; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it (1 Cor. 10: 13) ********************** When your values are clear to you, making decisions become easier. **************************** The will of God will never take you to where the Grace of God will not protect You........
I, like many here, have trouble with the weekends. I always overeat, or eat things I know I shouldn't (*coughcoughfastfoodcoughough*) But this weekend was different. Not only did I avoid all temptations of that glorious oh so bad for me and my tummy fast food, I also tracked all my foods! AND stayed in my calorie ranges! All in one weekend! I don't know that that's ever happened before. I'm so excited! My trick: I treated lunch like I was at work. I ate what I would have if I was at work, and no more. I felt full (none of that phantom weekend hunger here!) and satisfied with myself. For dinner, I just ate what we had. Last night I ruined dinner, and said to hubby let's just go to Subway. At least a healthy choice, right? I changed my mind, realized what I was doing, and threw some fish in the oven and veggies in the microwave. Healthy, satisfying dinner and room alloted for some frozen yogurt. Go me!
