Self Challenge - Wk 2

Week 2 - September 1-8
  • 9 cups water each day
  • One dessert a week
  • Meals fit on small plate (no seconds)
Memory Verse: "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." Matt. 11:28-30

Yesterday was the start of week 2 but I totally wasn't thinking about it and did a terrible job. Thankfully I did not eat any dessert! But I did decide to make minor tweaks...
  • 9 cups water each day
  • One non-chocolate dessert and one chocolate dessert
  • Meals fit on small (dessert) plate (no seconds)
  • Cup of raspberry leaf tea daily
My problem with desserts is chocolate. I LOVE chocolate and usually find some way to eat it every single day. So I wanted to give myself a little leeway or I would probably be just plain miserable the entire week.

I added the tea because it seems to be helping shrink my belly still just a tiny bit. So I'm sticking with it!

Now for an overview of last week:
  • 8 Cups of water - 6 out of 7 days.
  • Vitamins twice a day - 6 out of 7 days (just missed one morning dose)
  • Daily easy walk - 6 out of 7 days 
  • Verse - memorized!
I did not mess up all on the same day so that's good! I decided that I'm not gonna be strict about taking my vitamins twice from now on because they are seriously expensive.

I've been fluctuating between the same 4 pounds so no real weight loss during week one. :/ Serious set back but I still feel confident because I know that I'm growing in my desire to please the Lord in my eating and my desire to eat well!

How are you doing?
