Gotta Stay Disciplined
Lots going on the past few weeks towards taking my body down. Busyness, stress, less sleep, and hardly any exercise in forever. However, the biggest issue has once again been a change in my diet. Of course, there’s no such thing as eating perfect. I did consistently eat extremely clean and healthy for nearly 80 days straight.
Now, I’ve not totally fallen off the healthy eating wagon. I still eat and drink with great discipline. But, the past week has not been acceptable. A few very poor food choices are starting to catch up with my body. All it takes is a small window for me to start tumbling due to increased inflammation.
For the most part I’ve been very fortunate on the days I’ve swallowed any inflammatory foods. But, it seems a few consecutive days of poor decisions have caught up with me. Chinese food and two donuts earlier certainly got my attention. I can feel the fire inside me rekindled. Nerve pain is radiating throughout my body from my feet to my face. Now, all I can do is get back on track tomorrow and give my body time to settle down.
Praise God I know where to find the fire extinguisher. It’s all starts with what I choose to eat and not eat. Like it or not this is the lifestyle I must live and breathe. So, once this inflammation settles I will start another streak. I will make one good decision at a time in a world where temptation sits on every corner. With God’s help I will continue on this health journey. God just needed to remind me that my diet really does matter!
“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7
