Small Goals

          I’m exhausted! I haven’t been sleeping well. I am not doing a very good job at updating my blog.

          After a horrible weekend (and Monday) of eating whatever I wanted, I decided to set small daily goals. Yesterday’s was to get some exercise. I was so tired when I got home but still managed to put in 20 minutes on the rebounder (mini-trampoline).

          Today’s goals were to limit myself to only one soda and no more than three bites of sweets. I didn’t have the soda or any sweets! Maybe telling myself I can have some but limiting it helps? I certainly hope this is a turning point.

          Knowing how tired I’d be after work, I didn’t plan to exercise. Yet I managed to find the energy and worked out at the gym for over an hour! Then I stopped on the way home for Chipotle. The good news is I was still less than 50 calories over my goal for the day.

          I’ve been asking God to give me verses to help me through this. Last night, I read this, “Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Chris our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.” Jude 24-25 The phrase “able to keep you from stumbling” really resonated with me. I’m trusting God to keep me from stumbling! J

          Going forward, I will keep setting small daily goals. I can do this!

    Great job! I can never have just one soda, so I cut them out totally. It’s hard, but there are plenty of other things to drink!
