Better Choices

Well, after being shocked last night at my calorie numbers, I have come to peace with it. I have to just keep trying to make better choices, overall.

For example, if I do indulge in macaroni or potato salad, it should only be a maximum of half a cup a day. That stuff is lethal!

And spits or other nuts: the serving size should be a maximum of half a cup.

And no pastries... I don't crave these but once in a while, I am offered and don't refuse.

In summary, last week I exercised three days out of seven. I ate reasonably four days out of seven. Three days, I went way over my calorie range. So overall, there probably wasn't a calorie deficit for the week. I may have even gained some from the three overeating days. But .... my habits are getting better. My body is getting more used to exercise. I am getting used to being accountable for my eating. And I only did one emotional binge last week.

Overall: Okay.

Oh yeah: one more thing. I asked God to forgive me and heal me from my sin. I know that he forgives me, so I forgive myself for my sins and mistakes. That is important ... to forgive myself, and to move on. This is a new day, and his mercies are new every morning!


  1. Thank God for His mercies. :) Glad you know your habits are improving! :)

  2. It's refreshing to see someone that says "Christian first." That is awesome. I know that along my journey I've forgotten that sometimes we need a little outside help!! Thanks for reading my blog! If you don't mind, I'm going to add you to my blog roll!

  3. Hi kelerific! I would be honoured ... and I tried adding you to mine but I didn't see the place to do so? Have a good day, and thanks for the comment!
