These last two weeks I've been starting my "Eating Routine" again and I have felt SO AMAZING! I am a Chocoholic in the scientific sense. Just like an alcoholic if I have any trace of chocolate in my system I will think about it, dream about it, lie to get some, push...shove...and be disobedient. I will think about when the next time I will be able to have it! I've struggled for years with this horrible addiction and have been successful in cutting it out of my diet a few times over the years but always returned to my "Dark Master". AWFUL!
My son, Daniel, shared the other night at bedtime about his experience with his new DS. "Mommy, I need to stop playing my DS. I feel like I'm on the bad team and my DS is my master...telling me 'Play me, play me, all the time!' . I feel like it's like Jesus. This is not good Mommy." I told my little 7 year old that he just gave the definition of addiction!
It's an AWFUL thing to be trapped in an addiction that keeps you from being healthy, have energy, and accomplish all that the Lord has called us to.
So...I got very ill with the flu a month ago and couldn't eat. So I had a major detox off chocolate at coffee (my other habit). I have not had either since! And I feel like someone who has been SET FREE!!! It's WONDERFUL! = )
Below is a photo of my morning breakfast.
Salad for lunch, yogurt, granola, and salad for dinner. Water, skim milk, and "Silver Tea" (hot water and lemon) to drink.
It is SUCH a blessing to eat as Daniel did...remembering his strength and energy having only eaten fruits and vegatables. I believe Satan has a field day keeping us from what God intended for our bodies so that we can function fully in this life.
How about you? Any new revelations for the new year?
Have a lovely day!
