I woke this morning... did my usual routine and stepped on the Scale
*#%@!...... IT'S STUCK!
I've hit a plateau in my weight ( no surprise... it's what a body does)
NO wonder I was blogging about making a PLAN!
Ok, really... no dahhhhh it's what a body does when you need to "kick up the Heat".
I also need to be HONEST! That can be like a Four letter word (no, I can't spell or count)
I just finished a few days on a vacation... socializing with Family. So, I "fudged" a little with the healthy food choices. Ha ha.... No, I didn't eat Fudge... but didn't hesitate to have food and snacks that I KNEW were not in my classification of being "healthy life giving food choices"!
So, instead of feeling discouraged this morning (although I did for a few minutes)
I thought about "MY PLAN"
I walked into the kitchen and Said Get it together....
"First day of Fast": NO breakfast today.... (see yesterdays blog)
give my desires to God
yield to my Spirit controlling me this morning
NOT MY BODY and MIND.
But what REALLY gave me even more strength is reading last nights blog and then turning on PANDORA Internet Radio- Christian Rock Radio
Listening to the Rhythm of the Music that has words that feed and help to center my MIND on What is REAL and HONEST and TRUE and Feeds my SPIRIT
A PLAN TO WIN!!!
Then I tried to look like I was in the locker room after a pep talk from the coach....
Made one of those ridiculous motions of "Ya, let's do this" with my arms
You see, YOU MUST engage ALL three of YOUR Being's
I engaged my Spirit:
Listen to uplifting Music to feed and encourage my Spirit
I engaged my Body:
Made a physical movement to tell my Mind... I'm doing this!
I engaged my Mind:
Blogged - Reinforcing my Thoughts
a real Game Plan that uses the whole team
your team members:
The Body, Mind and Spirit
MUST work together as a Team to WIN!!!!!
Part of MY PLAN
