1. God has given me power over my food choices. I’m supposed to consume food. Food isn’t supposed to consume me. 2 Corinthians 12:9-11, “But he said to me, “My grace is suffcient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness… For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
2. I was made for more than to be stuck in a vicious cycle of defeat.
Deuteronomy 2:3, “You have circled this mountain long enough. Now turn north.”
3. When I am considering a compromise, I will think past this moment and ask myself, How will I
feel about this choice tomorrow morning?
1 Corinthians 6: 19, “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you,
whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price. Therefore
honor God with your body.”
4. When tempted, I either remove the temptation or remove myself from the situation.
1 Corinthians 10:13-14, “…God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.
But when you are tempted, he will provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. Therefore, my
dear friends, fee…”
5. When there’s a special event, I can fnd other ways to celebrate rather than blowing my
healthy eating plan.
Revelation 3:8 “See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut.”
6. I have these boundaries in place not for restriction but rather to defne the parameters of my
Romans 6:19-20, “I put this in human terms because you are weak in your natural selves. Just as you
used to offer the parts of your body in slavery to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now
offer them in slavery to righteousness leading to holiness.”

We have talked about it before…but sometimes we have to go back the basics when we notice a plateau or stall out on our progress.
Break out those containers and start using a food log and app again!
A HUGE key to your success is writing down what you eat! Something as simple as a notebook that you can carry in your purse or leave on your kitchen table will help keep you accountable. It’s easy to look back at your day and say hey I did a really great job! But when you start writing it down you realize you had an extra serving of pasta, a handful of chips, a mini candy bar and 2 drinks! You actually weren’t in a calorie deficit and you are off track.
A few days of a skewed perception can equal zero progress towards your goals. So my assignment for you is to get that notebook and start writing down what you are eating each day! Post in THE APP your FOOD along with your EXERCISE and SHAKEOLOGY! DEAL!!!
Don’t forget about the 21 Day Fix Meal Container Tracker App
