Day 20 My Sweet Tooth is Acting Up!!!!!

 I am dragging .Tired !! It is during that time when I crave sweets. Definetely a dangerous time to bake but that is what I want to do. Day 20 went like this:
Breakfast ~ South Beach bar coffee and snuck some cookie batter out of the fridge. Just keeping it real! And I have been challenged by Beth Moore not to lie for a whole week. After that I can lie all I want . LOLOL Just kidding!!!!
Lunch ~ Progresso Light soup ( Santa Fe Chicken is my fav!!)  and tortilla chips and snuck some more batter. BLAH!!! Something sweet and salty!
Dinner ~ Was invited out to dinner by some wonderful friends. :0) We went to Applebees and I had some sort of a chicken Mexican Salad. I ate half and brought the rest home. I also had a Dessert shooter.mmmmmm Strawberry Cheesecake. That is a yummy little shotglass of a taste of dessert. What a great idea!! For only 2 bucks!!!

Well, I am itching to up the level on my treadmill  but I still haven't gotten to the Running Store to get me some new running shoes yet. So, what I decided to do was to stay on the treadmill longer.I did the WL program on Level 2 for 60 minutes. I ran 3.25 miles. I am in awe when I think of the difference from that first day of running and now. Woo Hooo!! It does get easier and more enjoyable. Oh , Oh , Oh  I did not mention that I must have burned so many calories laughing this evening!!! It was a much needed retreat and the laughter was so good for my soul!! Thank you !! It was a very long day in this house!!!

Day 20 leaves me with lotts of thoughts and one is this. As I look at my Blog Archives and see Journey to 40 & Sporty over and over again ... I am getting a little tired of it. I am sorry if you are. It feels a bit vain but I hope you know that is never my intent. Such accountability I am finding in doing this and I hope that my sharing this journey can help someone  in some way. My desire is to glorify God in all that I do and I know that being overweight and out of shape  has really gotten in the way of my hearts longing to do so. Right or wrong. I know this is not Gods best for me.. So,to work I go on rebuilding this temple. I am praying that I do not lose that focus because w/out that focused mind it will all fall apart.  Gods balance is beautiful and that is the prayer in my heart when I pray about this journey. To be fit for my King!!!
