When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.
So I almost didn't go to weigh in this morning because I don't feel well and was convinced that I gained weight this week but I'm glad I dragged myself out of bed anyway - to my surprise I lost 2.8lbs for a total of 65.2lbs!! Annnddd I'm in the 180's!! Super excited about that.
It just goes to show that my way of life has really changed. Even when I think I'm over eating, I'm really not eating THAT much. I didn't really track this week but just stopped when I was full or had a fistful of whatever I was eating instead of the whole bag and it seemed to work for me. Obviously, I wouldn't keep doing that because I need structure but it is rewarding to know that my lifestyle has really changed for the better and I DO have control even when I think I lose control.
Update on my ankle..well actually it's my foot: Not such good news. I actually fractured it and will be in a cast as of Tuesday for 4-6 weeks. Originally I was pretty bummed about it but the way I look at it is there's nothing I can do about it but get it healed! Being sad and mopey about it isn't going to fix anything. Eating my sorrows away is DEFINITELY not going to fix anything. So what's a girl to do?? Get it fixed, deal with the cast, make the most of exercising on crutches, focus on toning my upper body, and hope I get it off in 4 rather than 6 weeks. That's about all there is to it.
Oh and I could always pimp my crutches like this girl did:
If there is one thing I have learned this far in my life it's that God's plan is more than perfect, don't question it. So I am rolling with the punches. God probably heard me complaining about needing to get back to toning my stomach and arms so he gave me a solution - crutches. LOL
I'm just glad that I am to a point in my life that I can shrug things off and go with the flow. This is a huge step for me! I used to get really beat up about things pretty easily.
God is GOOD, all the time! Not just when things are going my way. :)
Stop telling God how big your storm is and start telling your storm how big your GOD is!
