Moderation No More Update

Just an update on my "Moderation No More" lifestyle makeover. There is no workbook or video for the program...I'm making it up as I go along.

Some things are going well...purging the house of unneeded items and junk. It has helped that Little Sprout has decided to part with toys she outgrew years ago. And Hubby is finally onboard with decluttering his "treasures" because he wants to move the rest of the way across the country in a few years. (We both lived on the East Coast before we met and married in the Midwest.

Chance is helping by staying out of the way most of the time and making sure to wake me early so I can go for a long walk for my exercise.

And some things are not going as eating habits. Won't go into all the gruesome details but I'm not eating things that are good for me and instead eating those foods (some would question if they are real foods or just chemical experiments) that are definitely not helpful to my body. Some days are better than others and I am not giving up.

Spiritually, my life is a roller coaster. Actually this is an improvement. A few weeks ago things had bottomed out and stayed there. So at least now there is interest. There are some high points of gratitude and hope. And I no longer feel like I want to throw my hands in the air and walk away from church, the Church, and God.

So this morning finds me very grateful for a home, body, and spirit in transition.
