Not So Good

...just so you know I'm human -- today was not such a great day!  I had the munchies and did not do so well in controlling them. :( I didn't go overboard, but I also didn't stop myself and it put me over my calorie goal for the day. In my mind I want to say "I've Zumba'd twice this week and burned all those calories, I deserve a day to snack" but I KNOW that's not right. It doesn't help me toward my ultimate goal of weight-loss and healthy living! I feel bad about indulging myself today, but I know that it's going to happen. I'm going to have "munchie" days...days that I choose the cheeseburger over grilled chicken...days that I drink a regular Pepsi instead of diet or water. The thing I have to remember is that: "It's all right letting yourself go, as long as you can get yourself back" (Mick Jagger). Don't let days like this turn into weeks like this. Realize that it happened, just stand back up, dust myself off, and start back on my journey again! I can't let it consume me.


I AM A CHRISTIAN. I love the Lord with all my heart, soul, & mind. God has really blessed me more than I could ever imagine, but the truth is that Satan HATES me!! I face struggles & temptation every single day of my life; but no matter what happens, I still strive to do the will of God. Because I put my faith & trust in God, He has provided relief for me & my family time & time again! God never fails to comfort & remind me of His promise that “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). There have been countless times that I did not deserve God’s grace & should not have been granted mercy. But He has granted me mercy & forgiveness, as well as goodness & grace -- all for the purpose of sharing it with those I meet along the path of life. Some days are better than others, but you always have to remember to keep pressing on! Keep praising HIM & He’ll never fail to bring you through the storm.
