So, last night I came home later than usual – after my disappointing doctor’s appointment. Because of this my entire evening was thrown off. My wife and I went over some financial and other goals that we have and then we prayed and had devotion until about 1 am.
Because of all this, I did not have a chance to prepare lunch for today. Also, I woke up late, killing any chance I had of making lunch this morning. So, I threw a couple of things into my bag – pudding, granola bar, yogurt – to hold me for most of the day, but I knew that I would need to buy something for lunch.
When my wife woke up, we talked and I mentioned my problem. She then offered to bring me lunch so I wouldn’t be forced to buy anything!
So, even after my late night and late morning, I was able to eat a healthy, already paid for, lunch and spend a little extra time with my wife!
Of course, my adventure doesn’t stop there. The weekend is usually what breaks our willpower as far as eating out is concerned. This Friday evening was no different. I came home with a taste for pizza (the perfect food). Thankfully, I had the ingredients at home for homemade pizza, and I was fine.
I really feel good when it feels like I’m going to break down, but I can fight through it!
