REQUIRED BLOG FOR TEAM - WEEK 5
Wednesday, May 01, 2013
Happy to report that I am focusing as I promised myself on what I have and what I can do and not focusing on what I can't have and can't do. It has been very enlightening yet sometimes the worry comes in there and has to be put out.
This week I learned a few things about habits I did not realize I was fostering. Usually at end of day especially when I had a particularly stressful day I wld avoid everything and everyone . I fooled myself I was coping yet I was not able to sleep and often if stressed enough undid my diet efforts for the day.
This week with my son visiting me I told him about all the horrendous things going on in my life and I was losing it emotionally and could not believe I got chest pains, neck pains....conclusion did not know how much I was suppressing....fooling myself that I was coping instead all I was doing was stuffing it down and anesthesizing it with food...maybe healthy food but still using food for comfort and numbing myself.
Goal for this week -
Embrace my Buddy who I am reporting my food to each day since it really stops me from going into mindless eating
Search for something that will work for me to release and face these emotions instead of eating over them instead of stuffing them down to wreck havoc with my system.
Hope all my spark family is well and happy this Wednesday.
