Matthew 14:29 And He said, "Come!" And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, "Lord, save me!"
Life has so many ups and downs and distractions. The storm, the rainbow, just the regular day to day can seem to get in the way. It doesn't have to necessarily be 'bad' things even the 'good - great' things can take us away from our routines. But the point is to regain our equilibrium and get back on track. Same as our Christian walk.
Where would we be if Peter just 'dropped out' when he fell short? Its perseverence that counts not one moment in time but all the moments weighed together that make up our lives. Don't sell yourself short by quitting because you've reached a plateau or fallen off. Remember that your success is built on a 'series of good' choices. The only way a 'series of bad' choices can out weigh that is if you quit.
We are all familiar with the cleaning product Formula 409. Formula 409 is the end result of 408 failed attempts to create a successful formula. Will you short your own success story by quitting before you reach your goal? Keep walking on water!!

Easy Oatmeal Cookies (have these whenever your meal is carb/protein)
◦2 egg whites
◦¼ cup oatmeal
◦1 teaspoon vanilla or your favorite extract
◦½ teaspoon cinnamon extract
◦2 packets Splenda
Combine egg whites and extracts and whip till very frothy. I use the Magic Bullet. Add oatmeal and Splenda, mix with spoon and let stand for at least 5 minutes. Preheat oven to 425º F. Spoon mixture onto parchment lined cookie sheet into four even "cookies". Mixture will be slightly runny so space them out. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until set.
This will make about 4 cookies AND THIS IS THE WHOLE MEAL! Don't eat this 'with' or 'after' your meal:)
Exchange: Protein A, Carb A
