Even though I pre-planned for the 4th to be my "free day," I didn't have to go to bed guilty because of my food choices which rocks. It was actually more of an active day than anything: volleyball, catch, running like a mad woman from way-ward fireworks and more. The thing I've learned about "free days" is that they aren't "blow it" days, reward yourself with a meal (in moderation) and stay on track the rest of the day. It's not a "free for all" buffet - I've worked too hard to do that to myself! Enjoy some pics from 4th of July...
The food we spent all day TRYING to avoid...did pretty well too!
Joshie boy & I. He's like the little bro I never had - and we fight like he is too. :) Battle wounds!
NEVER PLAY WITH FIRE! I got sparks in my eye while doing fireworks.
My roommate got hit by a "wayward" firework & it burnt through her shirt and burnt her arm too. *sigh*
It was an all-around fun day once again!
Great friends, great fun, great food and great FREEDOM!
Verse of the Day:
Galatians 5:1 (NIV)
It is for FREEDOM that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
