This book is not a how-to manual or the latest, greatest dieting plan. Made to Crave is a helpful companion to use alongside whatever healthy eating approach you choose — a book and Bible study to help you find the “want to” in how to make healthy lifestyle changes.
Join Lysa and experience all that you were made to crave!
I'm loving it so far... Its very convicting. I especially love the challenging question she asks in the book: "Is it possible we love and rely on food more than we love and rely on God?"
Wow. Talk about a convicting question. As I have read this book, I have felt like Lysa was speaking directly to me. Her statement a few paragraphs later is exactly ME: "I had to get honest enough to admit it: I relied on food more than I relied on God. I craved food more than I craved God. Food was my comfort. Foot was my reward. Food was my joy. Food was what I turned to in times of stress, sadness, and even in times of happiness."
Friends and I have joked around about how I am with food, but I really do have a seriously unhealthy relationship with food. I will sneak food by the handful, whatever is available, when my husband is out of the room... I will stuff myself silly, and then seriously consider purging it. I'll eat when I'm bored, too. I don't even have to be hungry. I'll even acknowledge that I'm not hungry... Food is my "something to do". If its in my line of sight, I'll most likely eat it. My co-workers give me a hard time because I tend to operate by the "out of sight, out of mind" theory. If there are treats or junk food of any kind, I'll usually cover it up with a pillow case or paper towels. I know if I can't see it, I forget that its there. To them, its funny and probably somewhat annoying, but to me, its completely necessary. So, overall, its just not a very good relationship.
Anyway, that's my brutally honest post for the year. On the running side of things... I ran in the Resolution Revolution on New Years Day. It was great... I managed to run the whole 6 miles (you had the option of running 2, 4, or 6 miles), and I had an awesome time of 55:30. I had my favorite cheerleaders there with me, the Hubs and the Babe.
Awesome shot here... this was taken by the photographers working the race... Its like they were aiming right at me.
Me and the Babe, post-race.
And last, but certainly not least... Ann is back in the game! We are in full-on training mode for the Disney Princess Half Marathon at the end of February. The Hubs and I are also planning our family vacation for the week following the race. TOTALLY excited!
