And When She Falls…

The past three nights haven’t been great.  They haven’t been awful, but I’ve consumed way more than I should’ve. Oh and Aunt Flo? Yea, she’s here too.  Crummy, icky weather all weekend mixed with my crummy icky eating led to a bleh weekend.

On the up-side, I got to hang out with 2 girls from the youth group on Friday night, and we made gingerbread houses! (Hence the snacking Friday night…) While we were building, I received a call from the head pastor of my church, asking me if I’d be willing to share my testimony on Sunday morning. I was SO excited!

Last night, though, I couldn’t get my testimony to sound smooth. I’ve given it numerous times, as it’s a great story, but I was just off.  And then my frustrations led to eating, surprise….This morning went off without a hitch, and I was told by numerous people that I made them cry. Such a sweet story God has blessed me with!

*******************************************************************************

When I was in high school, I did weight watchers with a girl on my soccer team to trim a few pounds before our season started, and it was almost easy to do.  Having someone go through the same process you are makes it that much easier.  Right now, I feel alone. I feel like I am doing this by myself. Besides God, which is ultimately the only One I truly need, I am in this journey alone.

Tomorrow is Monday. Weigh In day. I’m kind of thinking about skipping it. With my period and that awful weekend, I’d rather not get down on myself. I’d rather just move on and do better next week.  Speaking of tomorrow…tomorrow is my last final, and I’m done with school for the semester. I have to stay at my University for an extra 10 days, though, as I am an RA. I’ve contemplated using it as a time of hardcore training. Like a 10 day cleanse almost. Workout hard, eat healthy, and pray/pray/pray.  I read my bible almost everyday, but I want to really delve into it during this holiday season.

So what do you think? Should I hit it hard for the next 10 days until I go home? What else can I do to help my bingeing/weight loss?

    First off, you’re not alone. I’m right there with you as I’m sure are several other blog readers out there. Anytime you feel alone or need some encouragement, just drop me a line at authorstephaniebennett@Yahoo.com. *HUGS* I think the 10 day cleanse sounds perfect to help counteract the binging you’ve been dealing with. Nothing like working out hard to make you want to stay on track with your eating. Good luck!

    hi, Katie! i am sorry it has taken me so long to get back with you. i am planning on e-mailing you after this, but i just wanted to comment on this post and tell you that i think the 10-day cleanse you have planned is a fantastic idea, and it couldn’t come at a better time. i am looking to do something like this, myself. (i’ve said this 50 times this month.)

    i hope your final went well today! talk to you soon.
