Less than Perfect...Days 23 and 24

Whew! Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. Here is the catchup...

Sunday, January 20
B – White Chocolate Strawberry Yoplait Yogurt
S – None
L – Lobster delights, whole wheat pasta/sauce/chs., salad
S – popcorn
S#2 – filet of Tilapia, baked
S – Vegetable beef soup, serving of sandwich meat (ham/turkey), slice of cheese, few chips
MESSUP – PIE :0(
Workout – walked to the kitchen and back quite a few times during the day! LOL!

I had no morning snack, but had two in the afternoon - not the best idea, I know. The pie was such a terrible, horrible, devastating idea! I am on a fast - fasting sugar! HELLO! I really messed up. I kind of beat myself up over that because I felt like that was more of a spiritual failure, and I was so tempted to just eat more sweets to deal with those feelings. Instead, I confessed my mess-up to a friend (thanks Michelle!) and she said, "so, just get right back on it, move on." That kind of helped me to gather myself back together.

And you know what? That is just how God is too. We are so far from perfect. We can try and try, but it still seems that we mess up. And sometimes we just want to give up, we just think we can never reach what God wants us to be... But all the time, God is just wanting us to say, "I'm sorry God" and turn away from it, dust ourselves off, and move on in our walk with Him. Our God is so good. It is so good to serve a God that loves us more than anything!


Now, on to the next day...
Monday, January 21

B – Whole wheat spaghetti/sauce/chs. – I know it’s crazy, but I was craving it, it was actually
brunch!
S – None
L – Cheese pizza, few chips
S – popcorn
S – Lobster delights, English peas, mac & chs., pineapple
After supper mess-up – two chicken nuggets, sorry, but didn’t feel too awfully bad about that.
Workout – None

Really felt bad about not getting that workout. Knew I would pay today!

Just remember, and hopefully by posting this I will remember too, that if you mess up, don't give up! If you fall down, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get back on track. This is a marathon, not a sprint. These are lifestyle changes that we make in order to achieve long-lasting results. One mess-up will not ruin the hard work you have done, unless you decide to stay in that place and give up...
