Just a side note:
I had internal and external dialog with myself today. As I thought about the chocolate covered pretzels that I bought (yes, one of those... I can justify this as a "not to unhealthy snack so it's ok to buy". (The devil made me do it! ) remember Flip Wilson... exposed our "excuses"
Internal-"I don't need it"
Internal- "It's my choice, but ..... (pause) I don't need IT."
Then I looked up and took a deep breath - refocused and said out loud... "It's not a healthy choice and I really Don't WANT IT!"
Then I spoke out the POWERFUL, Strengthening words.... "THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH".
Ok, Done.... I didn't eat it...
Now, the important step is to finish it with "I happy happy and feel SOOOO good that I did something good for ME, That makes me feel Great, Thank you Lord for the strength!".
Re Affirm SAY IT OUT LOUD!!!! hear what you know.... what you KNOW is TRUE, LOVELY, and Good report!
Philippians 4:8 (King James Version)
8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Also, I attempted to put on this site a 15 minute yoga stretch that an 80 year old could do. But, alas I couldn't. So, it's currently at the grocery store - Prevention Guide "Outsmart Diabetes" Title of Article is "Lower Stress with Yoga" 6 simple moves to help tame your tension and even Flatten your belly By Naomi Barr.
I did it!!... SO VERY EASY!!! and (then I said out loud and affirmed !) "It felt so GOOD for me to do this, YEA for me!"
