I did note some things during the week that surprised me.
First, I eat after training/disciplining/working with my middle and youngest children. Often when I have to do something I consider hard, I reward myself with food.
Second, I am QUITE sedentary. I don't do any moving. When I was in high school...a good song on the radio meant I was going to get up and dance all around the room. I don't do that or any other moving during the week. I had time. I just chose not to use it moving my body.
Third, my choices for food are poor at best. I often choose the quickest and easiest way of preparing something and that involves fatty sauces and frying things since this is a cheap way of presenting food. I'm not eating enough vegetables and fruits and I often eat fast food when we are having a busy day.
So are you waiting for me to post whether I lost of gained?
lost 2 lbs.
Now before you get all excited...I'm 5'10" so that's all water. I'll really know if I'm doing good at the end of next week's weigh in. If I lose something like 5 or 6 lbs...that will be about 2 lbs of actual body fat.
Praying they'll be less of me next time.
I hope you pray that for me too.
Action step for next week:
Posting these verses in my kitchen and memorizing it.
And put a knife to your throat if you're given to gluttony. Proverbs 23:2
They shall say to the elders; this son of ours is stubborn and rebellious.
He will not obey us.
He is a profligate and a drunkard. Deuteronomy 21:20
