I haven't eaten so mindlessly

Sunday, October 04, 2009

We started the mindful eating challenge and I am eating horribly.
I do not understand why but I have been eating milk and cookies and going over my calories. I would not be surprised that I would have gained weight for the first time in months. If I did I will change my tracker.

    Today is my free day - went to Target and bought more junk than healthy - just sounded good.
Remember tomorrow is another day! emoticon

    We all have bad days. Don't let this stop you. Sometimes we need just to take a break for a day and then get back on track the next day. I have a day that I call a free day every once in a while.

I felt hungry and then I was full.

Saturday, October 03, 2009

Ok Today for dinner I had one piece of home made Pizza 3x3 inch square with one ounce of cheese and three pepperoni and onions and green peppers. and a great big humongous pretzel the kind you purchase at fairs and a 12 ounce jamba juice. I had a pretty good time. I enjoyed it when I was done I was full and did not eat any more. I felt satisfied, I felt it tasted good.
salty , sweet, spicy. good company and smiles.

I was chatting and listening and it was great.


Have not been...

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

I have not had much time to blog. I get on less and less time. But I want to talk about when and how I feel when I eat and this is a good venue. So I got up last night and had yogurt and sardines and crackers! I ended up eating them while watching the so you think you can dance show I taped.
I should have danced with them.

    But you didn't mention how you *felt*. You only mentioned what you at and what you watched. How how were you feeling??

2nd Blog today

Monday, September 21, 2009

I do not know why I am so sad, but it is because I am doing things that I felt would be helpful but no one else wants to step up and help.
I have to keep my nose out of things that are none of my business.
Keep me on the things I am actually able to control.
Like how much I eat and how and how much I exercise.

    The best way you can get yourself into trouble is by putting your nose, ears and lips where they don't belong. The things that you are doing that you think are helpful, were they requested of you or did you just do them?


When I ask you to listen to me and you start giving advice and you have not done what I asked.

When I ask you to listen to me and you begin to tell me why I shouldn・t feel that way, you are trampling on my feelings.

When I ask you to listen to me and you feel you have to do something to solve my problem you have failed me, strange as that may seem.

Listen! All I asked, was that you listen not talk or do - just hear me.

Advice is cheap; ten cents will get you both Dear Abby and Billy Graham in the same newspaper, and I can do for myself; I・m not helpless.

When you do something for me that I can and need to do for myself, you contribute to my fear and weakness.

But, when you accept as a simple fact that I do feel what I feel, no matter how irrational, then I can quit trying to convince you and can get about the business of understanding what・s behind this irrational feeling.

And when that・s clear, the answers are obvious and I don・t need advice.

Irrational feelings make sense when we understand what・s behind them.

Perhaps that・s why prayer works, sometimes, for some people because God is mute and he doesn・t give advice or try to fix things.

He :just listens and lets you work it out for yourself.;

So please listen and just hear me. And if you want to talk, wait a minute for your turn; And I・ll listen to you.

Anonymous: :Listen; was found in David Bailey and Sharon Dreyer・s book, Care of the mentally ill (1977)

    It's true. Sometimes we have to stay out of the picture until we're sure it's the right time. I agree. Taking care of ourself is always right. Other people need to see the attention you pay to staying healthy. God bless. emoticon

Things Happen

Sunday, September 20, 2009

There are things that happen that make life difficult.
But when there is no obvious solution I like to sit under my canopy and write. While my cats sleep under the table. And while the humming birds fly safely overhead.
I allow my higher power to solve the issues.
I accept the answers that come.
I accept that sometimes the answer never comes.
