Happy Saturday

Saturday, May 16, 2015

The weather report was for rain today, we got about 3 minutes of light rain and now the sun is out...

My May plan has not been going as well as I had planned.......

I am doing great with my exercise but struggling with food....I am trying very hard to stop over eating, that feast beast seems to have sneaked back in to my brain.......
I found myself telling ME that I deserve that extra serving, I deserve some more ..............

Seems when I relax and not stay focused old habit slip back in.....this can be so frustrating to me....I do know better, I do but at times it seems I just don't care..

I have been having a pity party with myself, telling Me, it's just not fair that I have to watch every bite of food, even healthy foods....then I wonder why I am so addicted to food, why can't I find some other thing to comfort me, to help me feel less stress...what is the matter with me.....why have I let food get such a hold on me....
I need to go back to basics, I need to become more focused on portions.....
I do have to give my self credit that I have not gone back to junk food, no fast foods, or high fat foods or high sugar foods....

I have a lot of personal family issues going on, 3 close family member have been cancer and not given much time to live.....I do believe in God and know he has a plan for them and my family ....I am trying hard to be strong for them and the rest of the think I am turning to food ......looking for ways to keep busy and stay away from food....

thanks for listening, I'm hoping by getting my feelings out, it will help me deal with my emotional eating....

Have a Healthy week end...... emoticon....

    It does seem unfair, I put back on a lot of weight while pregnant, because I didn't watch my food any more. I realise I have made things a lot harder on myself.

    Why not try turning the "obsession" with food a new way? Try new foods, try new recipes, perhaps from a world cuisine you haven't tried yet? Research is, enjoy exploring and looking at new things.

    Sorry to hear you're having struggles this month, Kitt. Praying for strength for you as you continue onward. Also praying for your family members. Cancer sucks.

    I understand your seems so easy to change up habits & food creeps in as a needed consolation when we are in emotional distress. Good for you for steering clear of the CRAVING foods that truly send us back to unhealthy ways of living. Sometimes exercise can create that fierce extra food hunger. You do so well in sparking, do you compare your fitness to caloric intake??? This is where I seem to fall short sometimes.

    Sending you prayers & support at this sad family time. It is never easy when sickness gets so close to our loved ones. Stress raises cortisol which affects our health, so try to take some relaxation time just for you. emoticon emoticon

    I'm sorry you are going through this rough time, and will pray for your and your family. I am an emotional eater, and tend to fall into that same trap - eating to comfort.

    Praying for you and your family members, Kitt!! I know it's not easy to watch a family go through cancer struggles. My heart goes out to all of you. I know that you have done crafts in the past. Have you tried to get back into crafts? Maybe that will help you. Take care!!

    Keeping you in my prayers, Kitt. I know it's a tough time. I know how easy it is to turn to food for comfort, to fill the time ... food has been our answer before. God has the answer for today. We'll keep praying.

    I seem to go through phases of 'needing to eat more' and it rarely affects the scale - keep an eye on yourself, and plan, plan, plan a healthy menu for yourself (things that you can eat LOTS of without piling on the calories)

    You are going through a lot right now with family concerns. I am sorry to hear some of your family members are not well. I am sure it is stressful & it can upset our apple cart in the way of healthy eating etc. I am sure you will do well with your healthy habits, Kitt. You always get back on track. Take care and have an awesome weekend. emoticon

    I have a protein shake every morning before I even get dressed. After a night's fast your body needs the protein to stop muscle breakdown. Taken with 16 oz. of water also hydrates the vital organs. It's one of my better habits. emoticon

    Protein also curbs the appetite. emoticon emoticon emoticon
