So, after admitting to complete gluttony earlier today I told myself that I would not continue the same path for today. You see, typically if I over indulge...okay let's just call it what it is, if I'm gluttonous, (over indulge seems like such a fluffy word...a way to make it seem to myself that what I did really wasn't that bad) then I continue in that form for the rest of the day and tell myself I'll start again tomorrow. Today, I didn't do that. We can't continue in the path of starting again tomorrow. We must continue to walk on the right path whatever that path is for each of us (I'm talking food and exercise right now).
So you slip, you have some cake even though you're not planning on it or you have 5 cookies (or the dough ;-)), or you eat fried oreos, or you eat to much yummy Mexican goodness, or chocolate, or even too much roast and vegetables for dinner, the point is that as soon as we are aware of what we are doing, we stop. We change. For that moment in time we commit to not continuing down the path the rest of the day.
So, my question to all of you is what do you do? Are you like me and frequently tell yourself you start again in the morning? If you want to share with the group what you do then by all means please do. We are here to support each other. To lift each other up in prayer. To be each other's cheerleaders.
Alright, I'm off to Amazon to add a few books to my wish list, look up recipes for home made tomato soup (I have a plethora of tomatoes this year), finish my cuppa decaf chai and crawl into bed with my new chronological Bible.
