Whewww! That was a long weekend. I told you I was going on a month of eating clean this August. I'm not going to lie, keeping to that plan has. been. so. hard. For some reason, I just couldn't find enough motivation as before. I've been parking up on carbs and barely eating enough vegetables. But this week, I'm more than determined to eat clean. If not for anything, but at least to prevent the things that leave my bowels from breaking my WC. This is what this week will look like for me:
- Greek yogurt
- Fresh coconut milk
- An abundance of fruits
These things jump at me:
1. Deny yourself
2. Pick up your cross
3. Follow Me
It doesn't seem like the easiest thing to do and in fact, it is not. But that is where real life and joy is. When we let go of ourselves, and of the things that clutter our lives. When we let go of sticking to this world as though it is our eternal home. When we look forward to something greater and better which is living for Him. May God help us deny ourselves daily.
That's what's up with me, friends. I hope your week comes with so much joy, dying to self and fulfilment.
What's the one thing you hope to accomplish this week?
