This morning, I was randomly thinking about this guy I used to have a crush on. I guess that's the best way to put it. We "talked", I guess you could call it, if you HAD to call it something, for a lil while. This morning, specifically, I was thinking about how he told me, pretty much, "you are called by GOD and I ain't the one for that!" I used to say "if I were to build a guy, he would look like _ _ _ _ _". And while that statement IS true, I'm thankful that God's thoughts are higher! I'm grateful that "There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand." Proverbs 19:21 delivers this GREAT news! Because, if I had it my way, and somehow we did magically get married (I LAUGHED as I typed that), assuming he stopped playing games long enough to actually get serious with me (he did eventually get married...so I assume he got serious about someone, huh?!) I'd be worried about whether or not my husband was too drunk to drive home...or to find his way back to my bed! (That second part is just a guess! I haven't talked to this guy in years and I don't plan to find out. But...I'm just guessing at certain things!) I felt a bit "dissed" by some of his actions, initially, but I'm VERY grateful! Like...grateful BEYOND words! God knows ALL things! So, to Mr. _ _ _ _ _ _ _, thank you for straight up acknowledging that you were NOT the "one" for me! I SO appreciate it! And God, thank You for being God and for knowing all things! Proverbs 16:1 (in the New Living Translation) says "We can make our own plans, but the LORD gives the right answer." YES, Lord!

So, I haven't done a post dedicated to getting healthier (and also losing weight) in a LONG time! But it doesn't mean I've aborted this mission! In fact, just today I applauded myself for making a wise food decision! I felt like I was craving an "all bad foods" lunch! The cafeteria in my building at work pretty much offers the same menu each week! I knew today would offer the option to get a reuben. I had envisioned a reuben and chips (or fries!), along with an orange soda. Well, one, I don't need the soda because it breaks me out! (My acne is still in "active" mode, even at the age of 32! Boo to that one! Boo, I say!) But, I also recognize that I don't need the added calories! So...instead of an "all bad" lunch, I think I made some wiser choices! I got the salmon (on which they always do a great job!), a vegetable medley (a bit different today: broccoli, carrots and chickpeas!! Yum) and some sweet potato cornbread. I chose water as a my drink (with some Crystsal Light to add flavor to the water!) I am proud of myself for my choice! Not only was the food delicious, but I also feel full without feeling the accompanying misery or shame! So...yay me for a healthier choice! Last night I went to Chick-Fil-A and only got the "Charbroiled and fruit" salad. I really wanted a #2, value-sized! But I refrained! I'm making wiser choices and I'm proud! Whoot to me! Here's to getting healthier (and a little skinnier!)
