Hostess of the Humble Bungalow mentions the 3 BITE RULE in this post. I THINK I'm going to practice that for a few days and see what happens. SOMEthing has to give! (I just ate a piece of leftover taco pizza for breakfast, so I'm starting right NOW.)
I may not look too thrilled about it, but I AM wearing jeans that don't have an elastic waistband! And I DID do 30 minutes of exercise this morning! And I DID avoid major sweets, bread and pasta yesterday!
A quote from my morning devotional said this: "When God says 'today', He doesn't mean 'tomorrow'." I blogged a little more about that HERE.
Hope you're making the most of YOUR opportunities and seizing the minutes of THIS day to be all God envisions for you.

That cycle was certainly the story of Israel in their Old Testament history, wasn't it! Hmmmmm. I need to study that again.
Tackling MY game at the four levels from yesterday:
- I'm weighing in but not telling! I'll record it in my journal.
- Still wearing an elastic waistband because nothing else fits.
- Will exercise MORE than 30 minutes with the grands here.
- Will have watermelon instead of sweets and only one piece of pizza (lunch) and no other breads or pasta.
WE CAN DO THIS! AND NO BETTER TIME TO START THAN TODAY!
Unfortunately, I've NOT been maintaining the healthy habits that brought me to a healthy weight last year. I've wasted a good summer. (Well, a HOT summer, anyway!)
Today when it came time to dress, I admitted the fact that there is very little in my closet that fits. I got rid of larger clothes in January, thinking that would be incentive to keep the weight off.
Here for me to face are the facts:
- I was irregular in 30 minutes of daily exercise--then quit altogether.
- I have been careless - make that EXCESSIVE - in the amount of sweets and breads I've been eating.
- I quit weighing everyday.
- I started wearing elastic waistbands!
I'm sure there are more facts to face, but for now these are the ones I need to reverse. I will be posting more regularly here again in expectation that it will help me be more thoughtful about my actions.
