just sayin’ … on our own
Friday, March 26, 2021
The start of quiet day. And Hubby slept sorta ok … asleep by 10:30, awake at 1:30 and 5:20 to stay awake.
Things were a little complicated last night when DS2 left to go home. I think Hubby and I felt the realization … we are on our own and it is important to do everything right.
Usually after an episode … Hubby slowly regains his balance and we start the arduous process of coming back off the meds. This time we used less meds … so, can I hope for less … strife???
I have been walking on my treadmill … and promised myself to continue to do so. The walking has been a great stress release. Who knew??? Oh, that’s right … OverWorkedJanet.
Eating has been on track with Naturally Slim … the insurance program my Doc signed me up for. Eat only when physically hungry which has gotten easier to identify. Stop when ALMOST full using the philosophy of eating for 10 minutes, pause for 5 minutes and continue to eat for 10 minutes. This allows your stomach and brain to sync up on the full sensation.
You eat the food item you want most first. You focus on “healthy” foods but eat what ever you want.
So, far under duress … I have been able to “live” with these rules.
The true test … after life dramas are over is when I usually fall apart, regenerate with binge eating and the cycle continues.
Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.
