Day 18 Finding Balance

I'm having some issues with finding balance regarding the goodies at Christmas. As Dawne mentioned, it would just be easier to restrict myself and not allow anything. It seems once I start sampling, I can't stop. This only applies if there are lots of options out and available. I am still learning moderation here.

My knees are seriously killing me. I need to get a brace, but money is really tight. My gym membership will expire soon (in January, I think?) and I don't plan to renew it. That $400 will be put to much better use for updating things on our house that need updating. So, I'm so incredibly thankful I have the treadmill (which was given to me for free) but I need to figure out how to use it without killing my knees and back.

I'm not sure if I'll get a workout in today, but I do plan to be vigilant at dinner this evening. My mom is bringing over no less than 7 different kinds of cookies. Not including pies. And the rest of the usual dinner spread. Must. Not. Go. Overboard.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

  1. Me either - let's shout it, sing it, proclaim it - MUST. NOT. GO. OVERBOARD.

    Let's only be immoderate in our love for the new born King, the worship of Him and love for our families. I feel better knowing you're eating to moderation too!
