I wanted to share my story with you about Friday going to Walmart, first of all, you know the saying do not go to the grocery store when your hungry, well I didn’t listen to that advice and I went. I was just picking up a few things so I didn’t think I would be there long, but had to look at books and magazines, so anyway turned out to be longer, and guess what hit me, the urge to eat chocolate candy, I was hungry too. I want you to know that I picked up about 5 or 6 candy bars and looked at the calories and put all of them back and rushed to pick up the rest of my few things and got out of that store so fast, you would had thought I was a streak of lighting. But whew I made it through the store and did not eat any candy nor picked any up to eat later. I was kind of proud of myself, now I can’t get puffed up, but I really was proud that I didn’t give in to my desire for that chocolate. Now, if I can just remember this so I can get through the next huddle, it will be great. Temptation has a way to get a hold of us, so we need to be aware, I should take something with me so that I will always be prepared, but was just going to pick up a few things and that is what we all say to ourselves when we take that first bite.
I went back to water walking yesterday; it felt so good to be back in that nice cool refreshing water and moving again. I was very proud of myself because I was able to do 45 minute exercise workout this time, since I had the shot put in my neck, I’m moving so much better. I also walked another hour. I sure hope you have found some type of exercise that you can do to help you move and lose. I pray that some of my words will motivate someone so you will not sit for 5 years like I did. My daughter in Florida talked to me so many times about getting out that chair and moving, but I wouldn’t listen, I’m so thankful she did not stop trying to help me move and lose. God Bless and have a blessed day.
