Craving Struggle

Wow, I want cookies!

I have already had two today, I will not eat anymore!

I have two plates of cookies in my kitchen! Thank you to the wonderful ladies who brought them by... But your temptations are very hard to resist! As of the moment I'm not saying "no" to anything, I'm just counting calories so I'm allowed a couple cookies. But seriously people! I want to shove them all in my face!


I need to go drink some water ;)

Until Next Time!

Mini Triumph

Phone Update

I really really really wanted some chocolate today when I was checking out from the store. It wouldn't be that hard. It was right there. All I had to do... was grab it! No. It wasn't worth it. Last time I grabbed something at checkout and ate it I felt awful afterward! Just let it go... but I really REALLY wanted chocolate.

I was up next.

I walked passed the chocolate... and didn't look back.

Seriously, it's ridiculous how small that is... but it made me feel SO good! ;) Mini triumph people! They build up!

Until Next Time!

Update From My Phone

Okay, I know it's been a long time. Sorry about that. Lots has been going on and I promise to do a few catch up posts. Bear with me while I do those and write my life away. I'm having some mental breakdowns and breakthroughs and they are big. I'm excited to have blogger on my phone so I can type out a quick thought when I need to. It will be encouraging when I'm in a rut. I can just hop on here and tell you all about how miserable I am and then I'll feel better! Haha. Seriously though. It's about to get uber personal up in here. ;) Well...  As personal as I get. :P

Lately the struggle has been all about food. I do great until after lunch. For some odd,  annoying reason my mind thinks it's my reward/dessert/punishment time and all I want is candy or dry cereal (like fruit loop cereal,  not the good cereal) or) LW's gold fish (I always feel bad about that one)... So that needs to stop. Anyway... I'll keep you posted!
Until Next Time!

News from My Brother Volume 2

this last week was so much better than the previous one. Monday we finished with only one lesson but it was cool. don't remember why just remember that it was cool. Tuesday was bad. don't need to write about that. and then Wednesday. Wednesday was fantastic i loved the multi zone meeting where we learned how to plan more effectively and our lessons taught and new investigators grew so much. I also got some packages and letters from you guys. i got those chocolate almonds and also those delicious cookies. we didn't have any lesson that day but we ended the meeting at 8 pm and our lessons feel through. Thursday was fantastic. we had 7 lessons and 12 contacting and made a ton of lessons planned for Friday. Friday we had most of our lessons fall through but we still had a good turn out for the day. Saturday we had a great activity and we did more than 50 contacting opportunities that day and went on splits with three members. it was fantastic. my comp found a family that came to church the next day. Sunday, YAY WE FINALLY HAD INVESTIGATORS IN CHURCH!! our goal for people in church was 100 and in our ward we had 9 investigators. 4 of which were mine. yes! success. thanks for your love and support. Sunday other than that kind of sucked. my comp got really mad at me for the whole day because i wanted to go with the zone to this place called town house which serves American food. we found a way to do it. i am going with a buddy of mine who came with me from the ccm and he will stay at the house with my buddies comp. thanks for your prayers and thoughts and stories and support. i still have ten minutes if you want to talk. no i didn't carve a pumpkin. they don't exist here. this is a juice carton. this other guy was the mini missionary that i am really good friends with.
