When we set out to do something new, and then have struggles with it, we have a choice. We all know this and what those choices are, but I also think we all need reminding.

1. Give in and just go back to how things were.

2. Start again. (Ok I just have to add this: after I typed “start,” the next word suggestion on my phone was “crying”! I guess that is a choice also😂

But seriously, if you’ve been given another day, then you have another chance to start again.

Here are some steps I made today:

  • Prayed for wisdom
  • Wrote out a plan for what we will eat this week, including snack options
  • Green smoothie for lunch
  • Did not touch (any more) of the cookies that a sweet neighbor brought over

Please know that I do not share this to pat myself on the back, but to encourage you to keep up your efforts, or join me in starting again and see how even a small step can give you motivation! I hope to update each week the progress we are making.

2 Peter 1:5-7

[5] For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, [6] and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, [7] and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.
