"The deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray:

'Thy Will Be Done'."

Day Five

This will probably be the last post for a while about the health and fitness challenge...why? because it is boring to read about eating healthy almost as much as it is eating healthy...I'm going to continue my challenge and update you here and there, but I'm not dedicating every post to it.

I ate really good today...it could be the fact that I gained two pounds over the weekend! (stupid chinese food) But every day is a new day and I chose to eat healthy!!

One thing I have to work on is drinking more water. The benefits of drinking water are huge...including reducing the risk of certain cancers, cleansing your body of toxins...Plus, you just feel better when you are properly hydrated. When I worked at LA, I drank over 64 oz a day with no problem...but once you stop doing that it is hard to get back into it...It really does take a conscious decision.

What is your favorite healthy snack?

any kind of fruit or yogurt. i also make Stonyfield yogurt and any kind of fruit smoothies every day. I love cheese and crackers too, if the cheese is low fat and the crackers are whole grain. Good luck! :)
