Everything that I fail at is certainly due to my weakness. I struggle with extreme hunger and cheat too often with non nutritive fatty treats. I am weak and I admit that.
Yet when I succeed, I know that someone higher loves me enough to help me become strong enough to do well.
Today I was late for work and grabbed a quick snack for breakfast. Knowing my pre-packed lunch was nasty, I also brought an apple for a late morning snack. I ate that and felt a desire for more food. I did ok until lunch time when stress happened and the boss wanted me to do some project for him and I did it. I still made it to lunch about 10 minutes later, but that nasty crab left a bad taste in my mouth and the clementines I brought didn't hide it. So, I gave in to the chocolate sitting nearby.
So, why am I thankful? This evening I went to a pilates class after touching base with my husband and 2 youngest children. Then I stayed and interviewed my new personal trainer. I am going to do this, no matter how much I just want to go eat a big bowl of ice cream, I am going to go to bed and rest easy knowing the sugar won't keep waking me up throughout the night. And tomorrow, I am going to take something less disgusting for lunch and maybe even get an earlier start so I don't miss my warm breakfast.
