Dancing Through December
December can be the most joyful month of the year. It can also be the most defeating and the saddest, if we allow our emotions and our body to rule us. Here are ten guidelines I have set for myself, that I pray will be a big help for each of you too. Discipline with the right mindset is actually a beautiful freedom. Most of these ten are guidelines for fitness and health. Since health is a circle, they will interweave in a good way with every other area of life.
May God strengthen you to experience the best December you have ever had.
I will daily pray for the anointing of discipline: discipline to think on things good and pure and lovely and of a good report. I will ask for discipline to make wise choices, discipline to take the time to bless and thank the Lord for my food before I eat, and discipline to submit my day to the Lord for His help, His direction, and His comfort.
I will enjoy the ones I am with and think about them more than any food before me.
I will eat ONLY the DEBIT FOODS (health and fitness destroying foods) I really love. I will eat them slowly and savor every bite. I will enjoy one serving.
I will follow any DEBIT FOOD with erasers: Water WATER Paul Harvey Reviews Your Bodys Many Cries for Water and Hoe Downs
I will search for CREDIT FOODS at any event or special meal I attend. I will pray for that anointing of discipline. I will plan my Event Battleplan before I go. Good decisions are too stressful on our willpower when we are in the midst of the situation.
I will remain at 4 – 6 on the new_Hunger-Full_Index: Never too hungry and never too full.
I will measure my daily water each morning and decide to drink it before the day ends: 1/2 of my body weight in ounces.
I will exercise 6 days a week. (My exercise includes two things I enjoy so much: Ballroom Dancing and Crossfit. Search for exercise you enjoy and develop the habit of exercise.)
I will evenly space my meals and nutrient dense snacks throughout the day.
I will honor the EATING CUT OFF time I have decided upon: 7:30PM
