I had a small hurdle today of craving something sweet. It is usually around 3:30 in the afternoon. By then I am a little stressed trying to fix supper and my back is hurting..I was craving something sweet. But I remembered that I had teamed up with another lady on SP, to give up something for lent, not because i am Catholic, which I am not, but because I felt the need to do so and I needed support. I decided to give up honey and maple syrup.

I have always turned to sweets when I was stressed. I gave up sugar and refined foods over two years ago but I replaced the sweets with honey and or maple syrup on occasion. My purpose in giving up those two things is to overcome the flesh and get the habit of making Jesus my God, not sweets. I didn't start on the right day but I still plan to do it for 40 days as that is the time period for lent. That means I will go eight days past Easter. It helps to have a parner on this journey. Well two of them anyway, Jesus and my friend. I am praying for strength to resist.. Pray for me. I really want to do this,

It took a while to get it set up, but I tend to rotate many of the same foods. Good luck.

Both kids have things going on they need help with. You think once they're adults (DS 28, DD 25) things would be easy. Like my Mom always said, "It never gets easy, it just gets different." Now I understand. MOm, you were right. You were wise!

My biggest hurdle right now is anxiety.

It has become a part of who I am. So it's a daily battle of overcoming.
I get through it with self-talk and creating daily goals to have accomplished. With my mind focused on something else I can do this.

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.

My biggest hurdle is myself often. Eating healthy is one I stumble over a lot. I'm good with exercise but not with my eating.

Eating out while on a trip. Solution is portion control. Order the best thing and don't worry about only eating part of the meal. Throwing food away is far better than eating too much.


One day at a time.

Yeah I don't attend many social events or functions. My difficulty is exercise since starting full time Even as active as I am at work and outside of work it just isn't enough. So I've been having to really watch how much I eat.

Being in social situations where food is just ever present and being foisted on everyone!

Solution: stay away from the "feeding stations". Keep busy actually socializing! Have a seltzer or water in my hand to sip on. Eat before going to the function so I'm not famished!

Just a few of the things that have helped me.

Love is the root of all things good in life.
