I’m not tracking my water right now, but I know I’m going to have to come winter. I drink lots of water when it’s hot, at least 3 liters a day. And often more.
Track exercise (exercise 5 days/week)
I got 2 out of 5 days in! Since my girls were at camp this week I had the chance to redo Raquel’s room. That was probably worth 2 days of working out. I did not take any before pictures. Kinda wish I had, but it was a disaster area!
Made to Crave - My book reading is going slow, but I don’t just want to read it and be done with it, like a novel. I’m thinking of it as investing time to learn! J This week I’m learning to replace my cravings. Lysa suggests using cravings as prayer prompts. An example… If you go to food for comfort, pray instead and ask God to comfort you. If your lonely, talk to God. It sounds oversimple maybe, and I know I don’t do her words justice,
Is it possible that I love and rely on food more than I love and rely on God?God never intended for us to want anything more than we want Him.
Lots to think about again!
I look forward to reading the other E2E updates. I think I learn a little something from each one of you.
Julie and I are staying in touch! I love getting her emails. You inspire me, Julie!
Things that motivate me change every now and then, and so will my quote from time to time!
And now a few pictures of the room make-over!
When I asked Raquel what color she'd like her room. She said the color in her room didn't bother her, so I really didn't know where to go with that. Since the curtains I was using up til then were still really good, I decided to just use a color that looked good with those. And I insisted it be a light color, because she'll be doing her homework in there.
