Everyday Eating

About eight years ago I never really ate breakfast; unless you counted the Diet Coke and chips.  I ate what I wanted when I wanted.  I even remember standing in my kitchen one morning at age 41; eating chips and drinking my Coke thinking, “I feel so great! I wonder how long I will be able to keep this diet going?!”  And I thought because I was healthy in my relationship with God, reading the Bible and doing Pliates occasionally I’d be just fine.  “Who needs green leafy vegetables?”  But five months after having these thoughts I started getting sick with a lot of different infections and then came emotional anxiety and… well…I kinda crashed.

There were other factors that played into my “crash” but I heard God clearly speak to me. Yes, He had great plans for me but I needed to take care of my diet.  1 Corinthians 16:20; I don’t just belong to myself; I’m God’s girl and I honor Him by the way I live my life and take care of myself….everyday.
