Power not Permission

‎'Grace does not grant permission to live in the flesh;
it supplies power to live in the Spirit.'  (John MacArthur)

Another "day of grace" for me--at so many levels.  I DID get out of the recliner and walked 30 minutes. The food I ate was  half a banana;  half of a half of an Italian salad (restaurant style) and half of a small cheesy-bread that came with it; a sandwich consisting of 1 piece of bread with a couple of thin slices of turkey, piece of Baby Swiss cheese and tomato with a drizzle of olive oil and white wine vinegar;  slice of watermelon; and an orange juice slush.  It was more than I've been eating but still well under 1,500 calories.

Tomorrow I weigh - reaping and celebrating the reward of healthy habits this week!

What I did right:  Walked, posted, chose healthy foods, portion control at restaurant, vitamin


  1. Good job Rebecca...I think portion control at the restaurant is most difficult! The food is just so delicious usually.:) I'm still right along with you...doing fairly well with the eating and not too badly with walking. We'll see how this goes! Have a great weekend!

  2. Well done, indeed! Portion control is so important and something I have been doing, following your example. Too hot to walk today tho...does housecleaning count?

  3. Yes, Donna! Housecleaning counts for SOMEthing! I will walk inside today. Later.
