Diet & Healthy Eating

"To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art."
- Francoise de la Rochefoucauld


Often times the hardest part about dieting is imagining how long it will take to get where you want to be. But, the journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. So try starting small; cook dinner 3 nights a week, or take lunch to work. But big steps or small, commit today to the most important thing you've got...your health.

Worked a lot last week but it ended with a great snowstorm! Our group of friends swapped gifts while it piled up outside and many of us stayed the night and to avoid the roads. At breakfast, I spoke with our friend Evan, a Bangor police officer, about the OUI and he wished everyone had my outlook. I can tell his job is wearing on him :/

I am feeling depressed and sick of life. I don't want to go on, but I know it's worth the pain. The pain is worth it in the long run. The long haul will not take me out. I'll succeed in getting free, and I know there will be a time in the future when I'll look back and smile to myself about the progress I'll have made. Nothing compares to a real woman who can talk to me and get to know who I am and vice versa. I need to get a support group because I can't do this alone. I'm not the lone wolf in this recovery process but I'm supposed to be with a group of people who can help with my recovery. I want to love again and not feel the loss of intimacy that comes with viewing pornography. My sins have broken me and pummeled me. I'm ready for a change in my life, and this is how I feel right now, this urge to keep going and going until I'm out of the bonds holding my arms and legs. Patience is key and I need people when I'm in college. These painful thoughts after the relapse are the worst part of the recovery and relapse process I have to go through on a daily basis. These emotions keep on flowing in an ebbing sort of flow I can't describe, but I understand the point of being totally tired and fed up with this snake. Coiled and wrapped around my mind it keep on squeezing, well I'm done with it right now! No more mister nice guy for this parasite feeding off of my soul. I let it in and now it is my turn to through it out of my life once and for all. I used to feel powerless, but now is the time to retaliate against this leech which has made my existence on this planet lackluster. Even though I have been stubborn right now I begin being stubborn towards this addiction and sin. Only God can save me now, and I'm His child. I'm a child of God and I'm proud of it. This is the year I get totally free from thoughts strangling all of my hopes and dreams. Nobody but me can start this healing process. Nobody but me can start truly myself as I am. Fight...fight...fight. I need to fight this with all of my might and with the Word of God. I'm pissed off with this sin. This is the only language I can think of because of the annoyance I feel toward my sin. I know I'm better than this, and when I do relapse I'm only reinforcing a lie in my mind. Lies from what I viewed that are detrimental to my future. This is my battle cry. This is my cry for the Lord's help in my situation, and this my deliverance prayer. I'm punching through this beast right now and I'll not back down anymore. No more puniness towards pornography. I don't care what stigma it has anymore, and I intend to share this, and I intend to write a book on how I got free from this lustful desire. I want to give other men and women experiencing this same problem hope and help for this addiction. It is a spiritual struggle, also it is a mental battle. Fatigue is the worst issue ( for me at least), but it may be a different issue that drives them to view and masturbate. I want to be the Light of Christ to others who see no way out. I see psychology as a way to get out from under the painful and pernicious effects of the beast. It is a hydra coming for every soul of the individuals involved in its usage. It like a food borne illness that infects the body and never leave unless the individual with that they have and they'll need all the help they can get. Getting free is hard, but it's rewarding in the end when the person has a spouse and is not divorced or still a virgin at the age of 65. This is what I want to thwart by creating a book full of practical advice on how to get free from this tentacled monster. This beast will be beckoning and calling me to look upon women in a lustful manner, but I'll pray and think on those things which are above from now on in my walk with Christ. When dopamine levels lower and my brain starts to act up, I'll go and pray and pray and pray. I'll read the Bible until my eyes can't stay open, and I'll study until I can't study anymore. I'll talk with Jonathan about my progress, and I won't drink caffeine to make it easier. I need a schedule for my day, and I'll begin my schedule while I'm studying and conversing with my friends. I know mother had those dreams because it I has given me faith in God's divinity and love. He knows I'm sincere. I'm joining a few groups online, but I'm staying online unless I've homework or online tests. Basically, I'm taking a hiatus from going online because it's not healthy for me in any way, shape, or form. If I stay on for longer periods of time I'll eventually go back and I don't want that happening. David, thank you for helping me, and this is the end of this long journal entry, and it may not be the end of this long journal entries. I want to remember it more clearly, so I'm writing longer entries. I'm no longer a slave to sin, but a conqueror. I'll see you soon.
