consistency

....is what I seem to be lacking this week. Wednesday I got an hour of workout in. Thursday and Friday were a bust as other things just filled up my time. Saturday I was attacking some much needed jobs around the house and got some extra sleep in that my body was craving. Ended up only getting 20 minutes in. Today I just did 20 minutes as I decided to forego the metro (3 stops) and walk from church to the train station instead. (My two little ones and I had to take the public transportation to church as my husband and 2 teens had the car on a teen overnight trip). So, only 2 days left of the week and we'll see if I can some more exercise in.

Food has also been up and down. Friday night we were out as a family at the mall and ended up trying out a new restaurant. It was a splurge and quite an experience. It was a Brazilian buffet but instead of you going up to a big buffet table to serve yourself, the waiters brought everything to you at your table. First they brought the "accompaniments" -- a bowl of salad, a bowl of white rice, a bowl of beans (like kidney beans or baked beans but with a very distinctive flavor --- actually very delicious), and a platter of french fries with a small fried banana. I loved the salad, (don't know what the dressing was but it was very good), had a small portion of rice with the beans on top. I passed on the french fries and tried just a bite of the banana. Then the waiters came out with 2 different kinds of meat that was rotisserie cooked on long skewers. The first two meats were a sausage link and a small chicken drumstick. then they came out with various kinds of steak, chicken wrapped in bacon, ham, roast beef, etc. They kept coming and coming --- I lost count but there were somewhere between 16 and 18 different kinds of meat. I have to admit that I pigged out --- but at least I wasn't pigging out on carbs. :-)

Saturday morning when I weighed after sleeping in late I was actually down a pound or so but I was back up this morning to where I have been all along. So I guess that my weight is the only consistent thing about my week. Hoping to change that this coming week.

Wow that sounds like some restaurant. It would definitely be hard to resist that.

Remember, that just because you didn't do good one day, doesn't mean that you can't get back up tomorrow.

cONSISTENCY means to keep at it for sure. We will lift one another up in prayer so that we can stay consistant.
