The last day of February and I’ve decided (choice) to keep a journal of my diet journey. I’m doing it for several reasons. I need accountablity. If I reveal my struggles I’m held to your accountablity. It will also help me from failing as I usually do because I don’t want to look foolish to those I’m trying to teach. I’m convinced that the spirit man is hugely involved in my overcoming any physical problem. Dieting is not only chosing a healthy diet and chosing one that can be a lifetime choice, but it is overcoming obstacles of logistics (vacations, holidays, travel), overcoming cravings, boredom, tiredness, and many other mental battles. I don’t know the percentages but I think the battlefield of the mind, and overcoming strongholds is a bigger problem then making out a menu. The sticking to it is the hard part. It is difficult for me because we spend at least a week a month away from home. But I can overcome every obstacle and excuse through the Word and the power of the Holy Spirit. It is the renewing of the mind and it doesn’t get any easier the older you get. For me it is a fight.
