Enjoying a hot day off.

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

It's hot and humid today here in Virginia and I haven't been outside today at all. Hoping the care dealership will soon call to inform me about my car being ready. Had some mechanical work done to it. I haven't been exercising as much as I'd like. And I can tell a difference in how I feel. I can't use the heat as an excuse, because there are things I can do to get myself moving. But for today, I'm safe, relatively cool and have much to be grateful for.

Eating out of frustration.

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Earlier this afternoon I ate out of frustration. Am now feeling guilty for not only eating out of frustration, but also about what I ate. It's a double whammy. I really hate doing that, but the old coping skills just kicked in. Or I should say my lack of coping skills kicked in. So for this moment, I'm making this post to get it off my chest. I know I'm not the only one who does it, but I want to take better care of myself.

    If we are smart --- we learn from such episodes & are more aware of what is going on at the time of leading up to such episodes --- therefore being more able to ward them off.

If it is like for you as it has been for me --- since SP such episodes have been fewer & much further apart. emoticon

God bless!

    Ah well, it's only one time. We need to be able to put it behind us and move forward knowing we can make better choices next time! Chin up!

Feeling rough due to not taking the best care of myself.

Saturday, May 03, 2014

For the past two days I've been feeling lightheaded and tipsy. It's almost like being drunk without drinking being involved. I had my blood pressure taken and it's up. Am planning to see my doctor Monday to make possible change in blood pressure medicine. In thinking about my diet, I have room for improvement. Especially getting rid of sodium.
Many times I ask myself why I wait it I feel bad until I take action in taking care of myself. I'd like to take good care of myself before I feel bad. I hope I'm not the only one who waits till long to take action.
So here I am on SparkPeople, looking for good ways of taking care of myself. Am also saying prayers that I actually follow through and be consistent in taking good care of myself.

    Will pray in agreement with you. I so understand the feeling of wondering why I have to be half dead before I try and take care of myself. Thats why OA refers to it as insanity!
I friended you. Maybe we can work through steps 1,2 & 3 together as I saw your blog while I was posting on the OA team page. emoticon

A Lifelong Journey
We who began working the Steps in order to recover from compulsive eating now find that through them we have embarked on a lifelong journey of spiritual growth. From the isolation of food obsession we have emerged into a new world. Walking hand in hand with our friends and our Higher Power, we are now exploring this world, using the great spiritual principles embodied in the Twelve Steps as the map to guide our way. We gratefully follow in the footsteps of many others who have walked this way before us, and we’re gratified to be making footprints of our own for others to follow.

Those of us who live this program don’t simply carry the message; we are the message. Each day that we live well, we are well, and we embody the joy of recovery which attracts others who want what we’ve found in OA. We’re always happy to share our secret: the Twelve Steps of Overeaters Anonymous, which empower each of us to live well and be well, one day at a time

Enjoyed my day off.

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

I enjoyed my day off from work. I wish I could say I exercised well today. The best I did was a short walk. I keep telling myself I want to take better care of myself, but it never gets past lip service. And then I tell myself I don't need to beat myself up about what I didn't do. That negative reaction is never helpful. So for today, I had a nice day off. Went to an Al Anon meeting and called my sponsor. I bought a few pieces of fruit at the grocery store. Am thankful for my warm house on this chilly Monday evening.

Took a 20 minute walk

Sunday, February 23, 2014

I've been nursing a sore left knee for several days. But this afternoon it felt a little better, thanks to pain meds. The weather here in my little town in VA was just ideal for a February afternoon. I got outside and took a slow 20 minute. Now that it's a couple hours later, it's not feeling any worse. Sometimes it's hard to know when to take it easy and when a little exercise might be helpful. Well, here's prayers that my knee won't feel any worse tomorrow.
