Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
Spiritual: I will overcome - Therefore I shall not be ruled by my desire to EAT!
When I want to eat something that isn't a healthy choice I WILL CONFESS HIS WORD. "Greater is he in me than he that is in the FOOD!". OH, ya.... I don't want to be EVE and eat the forbidden fruit! well, apples are good, but APPLE Pie's are NOT a healthy choice!
Mental: I will learn today. I think I'll research herbs that decrease inflammation.
Physical: PUMP IT UP today.
Although "Bob Green" in this book "The Best Life Diet" states in Chapter One - Phase One- Title: Weigh IN. "...put away the scale away, and don't look at it for another four weeks." He states that fluctuation in your weight during the early stage of weight loss can send you on an emotional roller coaster. The scale isn't a good indicator of what's going on in your body due to water-weight gain or loss."
Well, for me, I disagree. It motivates me each time. I weight first thing (after the bathroom) in the morning. My scale has the weight, water weight and BMI. Never the less. It makes me accountable to look at what I did the day before! No, delusion there. Yes, I exercised yesterday, but I also ate BROWNIES! So, how do I cry when I see weight gain- Fat not water! OUCH!
TODAY- I'm going fill up my pitcher of water with lemon and a pinch of cayenne pepper ! and drink my 8+ glasses (8 oz glasses). This is fabulous for energy and detox. (detox- I'll talk about that subject later). We do this in the hospitals for our patients. Fill up the pitcher so we can calculate the intake of the patient for the day. Well, I find that "people" always say that they drink a lot of water. But, truth is most of the time the suck on the same bottle all day! Or they start a bottle and forget where they put it and start a new one.... well, let's just say - reality is MOST people "Think" they drink a lot but don't. So, I say pour the days amount of water (add lemon juice which is great for "detox" and Cayenne pepper which speed up the metabolism) and be ACCOUNTABLE to drink all the water in the pitcher by the end of the Day!
The simplest calculation is the 60-40-20 rule.
- Total Body Water = 60% of body weight
- Intracellular fluid = 40% of body weight
- Extracellular fluid = 20% of body weight
Yes, Water is LIFE! Although some Physicians tell you that you can count coffee, juice and teas as fluid intake
I SAY NO. WATER, WATER, Water.... (Unless your on a fluid restriction due to health reasons- ie. CHF)
Gotta run - literally - 15/15/15
Salute! to my friends and Family
......... and PRAISE GOD FOR A NEW DAY - I commit this day unto Him and will praise HIM for his goodness.
Lord fill my heart and mouth with praise for YOU. (this way my mouth will be too full to shovel in food, and my heart will be satisfied for you and not seek the wrong foods! especially brownies). AMEN
