I had the pleasure of reading this wonderful book over this past long weekend while vacationing with my husband in the mountains. It felt so nice to curl up with a blanket next to a huge fireplace and read something truly inspiring! “Reshaping it All” is written by Candace Cameron (Who is featured on the ABC family drama “Make it or Break It” and who starred as DJ on the beloved show “Full House”) and co-authored by Darlene Schacht (Founder and former Editor of Christian Women Online magazine, and author of www.the-time-warp-wife.com) Candace shares her life song with us by unveiling the struggles she has had with food. She explains how her faith in God has helped her achieve her goal of being healthy inside and out.
I would like to start out by sharing with you my “dog eared” pages…these are the quotes that really spoke to me:
” If you want something you’ve never had before, you have to do something you’ve never done before”
-Author Unknown (p 44)
” Stay in communication with God, monitor your behavior, and buddy up with a partner” (p 57)
” There is a popular term in the land of the lean called HALT- are you Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired? If you are hungry than proceed but if you are responding to an emotion than HALT!” (p 60)
“Submit yourselves, then to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7) “When we resist temptation it eventually leaves” (p 83)
“In scripture after scripture the Bible stresses the importance of controlling our bodies, our tongues, and our thoughts….anyone who has reached a high level of weight loss has had self-discipline” (p 95)
All of these quotes are great ingredients to make a perfect recipe for a healthy lifestyle. They are God backed, simple, and make perfect sense.
Since I was reading this book while I was on a mini weekend getaway…I want to share with you some of MY own obstacles that I faced over the weekend . This book helped with my own convictions and ultimately…my decisions! Here we go!
|Candace talks about moderation and being able to treat yourself every now and again. SO! I SPLIT dessert with my husband (I could have totally eaten the whole thing).|
|This was the breakfast menu…and I was told the two BEST things were the Eggs benedict and the House made Corn beef hash…what did I get? OATMEAL…Win for me! (That was very hard for me actually)|
|For lunch, I opted for a vegetarian bean soup…it was so good and kept me full!
( I wanted a burger and fries)
|Lay out on a baking pan and drizzle with Extra Virgin Olive Oil|
|Add pepper and salt and roast in a 400 oven for approximately 25 mins.|
|Whala! This, accompanied with Hawaiian broiled chicken and couscous with pine nuts made a very yummy and healthy meal!
