Silly but that's how I think we choose what to eat and drink each day.
Then We "Cry when we can't fit into our Jeans".
I A L W A Y S hated to keep track and count calories when "trying to lose weight". Now I believe I know the truth why I always resisted.
It's because I'd have to FACE THE FACTS each day of what I really was eating.
Oh, ya... I'd be the one to say "oh, Doctor, I really don't eat much". This Was TRUE. But What I didn't say was that the Little I ate was WAY too many calories.
Then I'd get all stupid feeling and embarrassed when asked "do you exercise and how often?".... YIKES! Lie's Lie's Lies' to myself.
Driving down the Road BLIND! Just figuring I KNOW THE WAY.
Well, That has stopped this year on my "Journey to Health and Wellness".
Yes, Fall as started in the Air - OH I love when the air becomes cool and crisp after a Hot dry Summer.
Oh how I always have loved the anticipated holiday festivities, decorations, parties.... Food! Clipping recipes! Planning meals
Nothing better than my memories of baking pies with my Mom for Thanksgiving! She is an amazing cook and hostess.
Back to the subject. Fall has started and the aroma and delightful "eye candy" of beautiful table's filled with fantastic culinary delights are headed our way.
Below is an example of MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICE and eating responsible this holiday Season.
You could choose a "Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Latte" or homemade "Pumpkin Pie".
(IF you really wanted to celebrate the season with pumpkin).
Look at how irresponsible the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is compared to a Pie. (see nutritional guide below)
Latte has NO NUTRITIONAL VALUE
to feed "THE TEMPLE"
The homemade Pumpkin PIE is rich in vitamins, fiber and nutrition for LESS calories and sugar.
Latte 380 vs Pie 280
YOU DO THE MATH! on Calories alone... BUT don't forget the "nutrition" of what's going in your body!
So, "Put your Big girl panties on and deal with it!"
Count Calories, Sugars and Nutrition
They say "drink responsibly" during the holiday season... WELL I say "eat responsibly" or you'll wake up on December 31st this year with the SAME OL New Year Resolution.
1 Corinthians 10:
12So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!
13No temptation has seized you except what is common to man.
And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.
But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
Salute! to Your Health and Wellness
I pray you ask the Lord to show you and guide your eating habits. God Bless you
