#WellnessUp – The Plan, The Accountability

Walking through H.A.L.T. was good for me. Some of the principles are echoed in Made To Crave. Specifically the theme of pre-planning and accountability.

I recently finished reading Chapters 3 and 4, which I sum up as “Planning” and “Accountability”. Having a Plan is crucial to Healthy Eating, and accountability is equally important. When brutally honest with myself, while I started a Facebook group to help give me accountability, I haven’t yet really started utilizing it.

When it comes to food, I need a plan. I need accountability.

Weigh In Wednesday

Faith

I’ve spent a little time each day praying the Lord to speak truth to me about my health, my idols, where I’m being deceived on my quest for a healthier lifestyle, and truth about other areas of my life which are lacking discipline. I also spent this week going back to the Made To Crave study and very slowly and prayerfully reading through the introduction. Continue reading “WIW: Seek and Ye Shall Find”
