Well the Question for me has been:
|Just thinking about what|
I need and what I want
When I look at a menu at the Restaurant,
Do I look for what my Body NEEDS or what my Body WANTS?
Do I look for what "sounds good to eat" or what is "good to eat"?
When I'm shopping at a store
Do I look for what I NEED or what I WANT?
When I open my mouth to talk, DO
DO I think of what the person NEEDS to hear or what I WANT to say?
When I wake in the morning
DO I think of what I WANT to do or what I NEED to do?
Needs vs Wants....
My Journey is about renewing my
Mind, Body and Spirit
My WANTS agree with what I NEED
When what I want doesn't agree with what I need
then what I need is to
re-think why I want what I want
and what I need to do is
re-think what is it I need

1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy,
to offer your bodies
as a living sacrifice,
holy and pleasing to God—
this is your true and proper worship.
2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world,
but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—
his good, pleasing and perfect will.
God's will is for you to be HEALTHY and WELL
It's really not that complicated: Make intelligent choices!
You have got to know that an apple is a healthy choice over apple pie
You have got to know that a Green Salad is a healthy choice over French Fries
You have got to know by know Snacking on cakes, cookies and candy when your
BMI say's your overweight/Obese is Foolish!
You have got to know you need to eat respectable portions!
You have got to know your body Requires 3 balanced meals a day - And a Snack shouldn't be the size of a MEAL
Look at the Menu and SAY.... Hummmm I think....
"I will need One protein, One Vegetable, One Fruit
One Starch. And....
Right, No fried foods please....and No items that have more calories than nutrition
and no items that are laden with Fats...."
"So I will have the ___________"
(fill in the blank, pudding head!)
What item on this menu will meet my BODY's NEED?
Thank God there isn't a Gas Station that has 10 choices of Gas for your Car
.... if there were what would you WANT?
Would you buy gas that was $1 a gallon even
if it Harmed your engine?
.....would you want
Gas that Smelled nice and emitted a delightful fragrance and that was pumped by a gas station attendant (ahh those were the days)
EVEN.....if it Harmed your engine?
How about this: Can you NOT stop for Gas because you Don't WANT to STOP ?
No dumb dumb....
- You HAVE to STOP because your CAR NEEDS GAS!
- The RIGHT choice NO matter how expensive it is
- You can't run a car without the right type of GAS
Well, Pudding head
Ya can't run your body without Stopping and Eating the Proper FOODS
OR ...... You'll HARM YOUR BODY!
What I'm say.... is this is how STUPID we are with our MENU choices....
Eating Fast Food because it's cheap and convenient
Eating what looks good
Eating just to Eat, like it's our entertainment
Not eating properly.... chronic snacking!
Change the way you see FOOD and EATING..... it's Purpose!
So, RENEW your mind
by developing healthy Habits
Changing your Lifestyle so that you will
WANT what you NEED.
There, I said it!
Salute to Your Health and Wellness
