Started the day out well, with a pancake for breakfast, four dates and a cup of tea. then morning tea came round and I polished off the vegetables from last night's dinner. Still healthy choices. Hubby and I drove to the Bay, I had a dental appointment, got my teeth cleaned and felt pretty good. Hubby and I then enjoyed a leisurely stroll along the beach and stopped at a outdoor dinning spot to have a bit of lunch. I ordered a fruit salad and yogurt with an Earl Grey tea and milk. Hubby ordered Beer battered fish and chips. I sanctimoniously gave him my chocolate that they give with your tea and coffees. Then, I caved in and had some of his fish and chips. Drove home and drank my allocated water for the day and enjoyed having a friend, who is really healthy and looks great inspire me to do better. Was feeling the love and encouragement and it will be off to Boxing class in half an hour. Yay!

Up early, packed an esky with water and fruit for today's adventure of putting out catalogs. Made a big healthy breakfast and packed the car and off Hubby and I went to Hervey Bay to walk around 3 retirement villages for 1hour and 50mins at a fast pace placing our catalogs at their doors. Pretty sore afterwards! 1/2 a banana for morning tea and some water. Came home and put a load of washing on and aired out our room. Enjoyed a healthy lunch of rice cakes with avocado and salmon, capers and the other half of the banana and a cup of white tea. Must admit was pretty tired after walking for that amount of time and had a rest after lunch. Now to make the bed and do some gardening in the afternoon winters sunshine. Had a fair amount of rain on the weekend and the weeds have popped their heads up! I keep telling myself just for today I will stick to the program, this one day at a time thing really works!

Yesterday we had just under four inches of rain and today is a beautiful sunny Sunday. Enjoyed a little bit of a sleep in, had a healthy breakfast and went for a 45 minute walk, all before church. Church was awesome and bible study afterwards was interesting, ate 10 rice cracker biscuits while I was there and drank 2 cups of green tea during morning tea time and was proud of myself for not eating the chocolate cake. Came home and put a load of washing on, a chicken in the oven for tonight and made myself some avocado, salmon, capers on a rice cake and had some raisins. Enjoyed another bottle of water, that is one litre and two hundreds mls so far. Keeping in mind that I am on the program just for today, and it is easier to manage than the rest of my life lol.
Even have a good deed planned for this afternoon! Today has been a good day so far and I enjoyed listening to a bit of Confident Woman by Joyce Meyer on CD this morning. Afternoon went well, enjoyed helping a friend, finished off the roast chicken and vegetables. Enjoyed half a glass of red wine and filled out invitations for my birthday in a month's time. The only problem I have is finding things that are fun to do in the evenings as I tend to eat instead which can be very disappointing.
Enjoy your weekend my friends and God's love to you all!

Been learning to wait for true hunger instead of head hunger, it is a real learning curve. Been thanking God for the appetite he has blessed me with, quite often I eat because it is there and don't wait on true hunger and to feel truly satisfied. I spent a week away from my home environment and learned in that time to only eat when I am hungry and to quote scripture in the meantime. E.g. Man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of God. God has a good plan for our lives if we just trust Him, He rewards those who wait patiently for him. Patience and self-control are fruits of the spirit that we have been endowed with. Where God leads, He provides. So, I have been enjoying filling my mind with good teaching DVDs', spending more time talking to God. Putting faith in His word and choosing Him over doubts and unbelief. The devil wants us to lead defeated downtrodden lives, God wants us to live victoriously here as well as in Heaven. The best way to begin this is with a good attitude, complain and you remain, praise and you will be raised ( Joyce Meyer ). This speaks to me time and time again. Have a fabulous day!
