Emotional Eating

Saturday, October 11, 2008

I'm very stressed over the future, and I find myself wanting to eat for the comfort. And I'm so busy I don't want to take the time to exercise. And winter is coming...it's raining now, and after dark that kind of thing turns to ice and sleet. I don't want to go out, particularly not to the fund-raiser.

I want gravy and biscuits.

    I dont consider myself an emotionl eater, however right now im eating like theres no tomorrow. I cant seem to fill up. I recently had surgery and am on strict bed rest for eight weeks, Im half way there. I loved going to the gym and working out every morning and do miss it, especially now when Im just laying here getting fat....or it feels like it anyway. What I am saying is that I guess I am a
"boredom" eater. The sooner I am back on my feet I will off and working out again. Stay focused, keep posting, suck up all the motivation you can here and you will succeed!

    I'm an emotional eater also and stress over the future among other things. Hang in there! I haven't exercised in a while. I have to start going back to the gym regularlary. Exercise seems to quell my thoughts of wanting to eat poorly.

Goal of Divesting Myself of Material Things

Thursday, September 25, 2008

A big part of this is getting out of the storage space. This would mean having the equivalent of 5.5 hours a month at my contract rate--and tax free! I wouldn't have to get another monthly client. I didn't go today, and I should have. If I get rid of this stuff, I don't have the burden of paying to store it. Also, if I donate it to SFC or another DEZ place, I could get a state tax credit, thus paying down my arrearages. It must be done. I'd feel so much freer.


Stewardship of the Earth

Friday, August 08, 2008

Reduce, reuse, and recycle sounds great, but do we really think about (and apply) earth management into our daily lives? You might not litter, but how often do you drive your own vehicle rather than carpooling? What about buying "green" products instead of commercial items made with harmful chemicals? It is easy to disregard the dangers to the environment because there are no immediate consequences to our lives. However, think about how the earth will be in 50 years if everyone lived as you are today. Set a good example to your children of stewardship for the earth by recycling, eating fresh fruits and vegetables, and generally appreciating nature. Instead of going to Disney World, go on a camping trip. Turn off the TV and pick some flowers. This world is not ours alone. It is communally shared with all of the generations before us, and all of those to come after us.

    Absolutely! I'm lucky enough to work and associate with people who _do_ consider it important.

    all that and then some... work with your environment not against it... trying to have a "lawn" in a desert area is not working with your environment.... I'm in CA and everyone loves a green lawn.. we have a huge water shortage... duh? I'm frustrated that many people still don't recycle..... and they don't care... and don't take it seriously. My own family????? My parents are very good about it.. my younger sisters and their children do not care. America has lost its way. We need to get back to simplicity and frugality..... no more excess.
