Fit Mommy Friday!

 
 
OK, it is Friday and I have some good news. 
 
I have been doing a lot better with my food choices. 
 
I have not had any pop in 4 days! WHoo-Hoo!
 
My junk food has been nil to none. 

I am so proud. 

I came to a realization after talking to a friend of mine, that my problem is really an addiction. And a sin. 

I mean, I knew that gluttony was a sin, but I never really thought about it having such a grip on my life. 

I was really convicted after our conversation, and have not had any pop, or junk since then. 

The biggest junk I had was a muffin.
 
It has been amazing. I haven't even really had much of a craving for pop. 
I have had a few cravings, mostly for desserts, but when I feel like I want one, I really ask myself,  do I want to let this have control over my life? Of course, the answer is NO!
 
I am so happy, and I really feel like things are changing for real this time!
Thanks to God's wonderful grace, and how He is helping me.

Wow! You've made some real progress this week! Congratulations. I need to remember not to let the temptation to eat desserts rule me, either.

That's a big step and a tough one too! My sister is letting go sodas as well this year. I am proud of you and her!

I replaced my soda with herbal teas, and somehow also gave up the coffee (for the most part). I only get diet coke now when we go out for a meal, They are no longer in the house!!!!

Good luck!!!

Giving up pop and sweets is very hard. I'm really proud of you for tackling these areas.

Have a wonderful weekend.

YOU GO GIRL! I've meant to email you, my accountability partner, a couple times this week and didn't...SORRY! I did enjoy the Leslie Sansone workout video twice last week. I think it is going to be a very good thing!

I am a bit stuck on soda too, but I change a Looooonnnnnngggg time ago cutting 6-10 per day down to 1 per day. Then when we went on low-carb the first time changed to diet. Now we only buy no-carb drinks and I drink no more then 2 (usually one or less) and I make myself finish my water for the day first. Good for you!

Martin Luther: b. 1483-1546: "I am very much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt."
