Obedience to God

Obedience to God is an interesting thought. I think for most of us we assume that if we go to church we are being obedient, if we read the bible we are being obedient, if we pray we are being obedient. I am pretty certain that we do not think that if we eat right then we are being obedient.

I had a realization last night and that was that eating right and healthy is being obedient to God. Here is the deal. I have an addition to food and when you have an addiction to food it can consume your life. Anytime I allow something to consume my life that isn't God I am not being obedient. Therefore, in my life obedience to God means eating healthy.

What are you waiting for?

Tonight someone posed an interesting question (granted it had nothing to do with my situation, but it does apply). The question was "What are you waiting for?" This has been my life of the last several months. I have been waiting for something. I have been waiting for Monday before I get back to the journey. I have been waiting for Mr. Right to come along before I really start taking the journey seriously. I have been waiting for Fawn to come back and kick my butt or someone else to tell me that I look like I have been gaining wait. I have been waiting until I get back from vacation. You get the picture? I have been waiting, but why have I been waiting? All I am really guaranteed is today, this moment, this breath.

I can remember a time when I was really happy. I was really happy with the way I looked, the way I felt and the way my clothes felt. That ended in about April!!! It also happens to be about the time that I stopped really working the journey. I have been trying to get back up but for some reason I have been finding myself struggling. The bottom line is I just need to stop waiting for tomorrow, a miracle or something better to come along and do it. This is it. This is my chance. This is the prayer that has been answered so now it is my chance to act on it. So, what am I waiting for? Nothing anymore!

On my way to Hawaii

I'm on my way to Hawaii and to stay on track, Fawn has me journaling my food.

Monday is a flying day. Flying days are always a little strange with eating as it. I woke up late and was running late so I couldn't make myself breakfast at home. I get nervous when I fly so I just eat when I am hungry. The real downside to this is I am very hungry when I get off the plane. I know today was not a great eating day, but I am grateful that I have the ability to make wise choices and I am very grateful that I got to take a 15 minute walk.
