I don’t need it. I thought I did in order to keep working this evening and to fuel my run in the morning, but I guess I don’t. God is still teaching me how to deny myself.
I think my lack of progress in increasing my running time is directly related to my weight loss being at a standstill. If I could lose another good amount of weight, I might get faster. Over the last couple weeks I noticed that the Olympic runners were almost all super thin. Don’t get the wrong idea! I’m not going to starve myself or take any supplements nor am I saying anyone should do that to get a certain look. It’s just an observation I had. I hope their leanness is a result of good nutrition and training. I’m not training for the Olympics. Maybe realizing that bite of ham was not what I needed is God telling me to trust Him with fueling my body. Maybe I don’t need to eat as much as I think I do. Maybe I’ll eat a little bit after I wake up and before I run in the morning. Maybe not. We’ll see. I just know I don’t need anything tonight, and I realized it before I ate the entire bowl of beans and rice.
