Yesterday evening I was making choices about what I wanted to eat keeping in mind my calories remaining. For me, I prepare dinner at lunch and then eat lighter later in the evening. Most of the time, this works. However, I have to stay on top of my tracking throughout the day, to know how much I can eat.
I had become "Lucy Goosy" with certain foods. Popcorn is one of those foods. So, I found out specifically how many calories are in 1 cup of popcorn popped in oil. FYI it's 55 calories per cup. So, I ate 3 cups of popcorn with 1 ounce of cheese melted on top. I also had 1 fresh local peach cut up with exactly 1/2 cup of vanilla ice cream. YUM YUM! It was exactly what I wanted to eat, but by measuring portions I stayed within my daily calorie range. I can't get over how great it feels to be in control of what and how much food is going into my body.
I AM ENCOURAGED AND EXCITED!

Do you ever feel like a "broken record"?! This summer has actually been filled with wonderful memories and special events. Unfortunately, I have completely ignored my good,healthy habits and the weight that I lost climbed back on with a few extra pounds as well. I have been so convicted about my poor health choices. Today, I gave my Spark Page a Fall Face Lift and I am RE-FOCUSSED in my words about beginning again today. NOW I need my actions to line up with my words.
I do want to be all that God created me to be. I know that because of Jesus, I have what it takes to walk in freedom and victory. "Help me, Father God!" And also, please help me dear Sparkers to take this journey one day at a time. Before I know it, I will be standing on the top of the mountain looking out at the breath-taking view.
