Eating cleaner and less food (and junk!) has been something of a struggle for me this week. But with God's grace I have chosen not to give in to most cravings, or make substitutions that, while not perfect, are better than what I've actually been craving. I know that if I allow Him to continue to help me, this struggle will be a thing of the distant past. Permanently. I'm taking it one day at a time.
Today I don't know that I ate enough proteins, and I may have eaten too many carbs (but I really don't think so...), but I did better on sweets today too. Two Nature's Valley breakfast biscuits, blueberry. And I don't mean two packages; I mean two biscuits. That was AWESOME for me. I was starving. And out. And busy. So I opened a package, ate two biscuits very slowly while I was driving, and tucked the remainder away in a drawer when I got home so that I could have a lunch of sautéed cabbage and grilled chicken. My husband, of course, walked in with a burrito from a restaurant for me, and I graciously had a few bites, but I then pushed my plate over to him, telling him I knew he was still hungry, and I resumed my healthier lunch.
Small victories, right? With God's grace, I WIN!
