This week we've had Vacation Bible School (VBS). It's been a great time for the children and it brings so much joy to my heart. Each night we start off with a meal followed by all the VBS activities. I've been working at the registration table, which has actually been helpful in controlling my glucose levels. Since registration is upstairs and dinner is downstairs, I've been bringing my own dinner. Yes, I could go downstairs after my registration duties are done and grab a bite from the kitchen. However by bringing my own meal, not only am I able to control what I eat but also how much I eat.
Simple things like packing a meal instead of eating out (whether at a restaurant or the church's kitchen), allows me to control my portions and stay on top of things. Thursday night, the last night of VBS, will be the true test. You see, Thursday night's dinner is pizza. Enough said? (Yes, I'll pack my dinner and stay upstairs.)
