In my striving to become FABULOUS the things I want most to do are to follow God fiercely, absolutely cherish my family, believe I can make a difference in the world...and make it! But, none of this can be done truly well if I'm dealing with a body that is fat, flabby, out of shape, and unhealthy. It's not a vanity thing..it's a health thing. I have got to get my weight under control. And, I believe it will happen day by day...bite by bite. My good friend, Katie Post, is helping me train for the Jingle Bell 5-K run coming up in early December. She can get me to push myself in ways I never imagined possible. But, she can't make me choose healthier foods. No one can. Especially NOT my husband. One sure way to start a fight in the Tracey house is too raise one's eyebrows as I reach for the candy bar "hidden" on the top shelf of the tallest cabinet. Just get it down for me, and no one gets hurt! :) The out-of-whack-eating train has got to come to a stop. If I want to see results that will ensure a healthy me when Alyssa's 40, I have to do the hard work!! But, it's Vision week. During 91.5 WCIC's fall fundraiser we get to visit and laugh with colleagues and volunteers we don't normally see. And, we do it all over some really YUMMY food. Cakes, pies, pizzas, breadsticks, and cookies crowd every inch of counter space in the kitchen and you'd think I was determined to cram some of each into my mouth and tummy. But, I can't! I just can't do it. So...could you pray for me this week? Yes, please pray for the financial need of the radio station and the lives that God is changing through the music and programming. And, yes, please THANK GOD for the generous donations of food and drink from so many kind local businesses. But, then, could you also pray that I will realize that just because it's THERE doesn't mean I have to eat it? THANK YOU so much. Now...to occupy myself with something other than food!
Have a FABULOUS day!!!
