still small voice

Friday, March 15, 2013

I am not doing so well. Something got me started a few days ago to want to just keep emotional reaction to something my husband did. I saw it coming and felt helpless to stop it. I need to come up with a plan to deal with things in a better manner than eating. I can't and won't let this continue to derail my good habits. I just felt like I was starting to get a grip on things again and BAM! the devil got his foot in the door again. I am going to work on posting my goals again.

Something I heard on the radio this morning...(my interpretation)"Be thankful when you feel that Voice telling you to stop. It is when you don't hear it that you need to be concerned" I am still hearing that Voice telling me to stop. I know that if I continue to ignore that Voice, there will come a time when I no longer hear it and will end up with all the weight I have lost right back on me! Thank you Lord, for hearing my prayer. Just sitting here typing this is helping me realize YOU are with me and are helping me. I just have to remember to listen to YOU!

Wow, this blog totally ended up in a different place than I thought! I was reaching for encouragement from sp and I got it, even though no one posted anything yet! God is GOOD!

    Thanking God for sending that radio message to help you out when you needed it. It takes a lot of humility to get past those things that offend us. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

    Journaling can help answer your own questions and help you realize how to inspire yourself! Hash our your thoughts and reflect on them. It helps me a bunch!
Glad you are feeling more encouraged!

    Hey, I can SOOOOO relate to your experience. And that's another thing that's so great about SparkPeople and Spark Friends!!!

Remember that habits can be broken and new habits can be established. I am living proof of that! No, I have NOT arrived, but every day is another opportunity to do our best . . . .and God will give us the strength IF we ask and IF we accept.

I often have had to - after asking Him for help - visualize Him handing me the key to unlock the door behind which is the answer to my prayer. After accepting it, the responsibility then becomes mine . . . what am I going to do with it.? Toss it away, or put the key in the lock and open the door . . . .

Certainly, if He gives us the key, He also gives us His strength to do it.

Once we know we can do something to change our old habit, we can do it again and again and again, until the old habit is replaced by the new one!

    God is good and he does hear us and he does answer us, but I think you can help Him out by having a plan. When something happens that upsets you try getting up and getting away from the food. Maybe use that time to do your exercise.... go for a walk, fill up on water or just have a healthy snack to take the edge off. You have many options.... like you already did get on the computer and write to your spark friends. If you are like me you can't eat and type at the same time. You can do it. You have the inner strength and support of many people around you. emoticon

Roller coaster

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

I hate this roller coaster I am on. I felt so good yesterday and had such good attitude...about stuff in general. (Of course I was quilting, my passion and favorite hobby), but today I just feel blah and want to eat everything in sight! Not good. I have other work to get done today, so no time to sew. Sitting here on sp helps distract me for a little bit, but it is time to get busy. Man, how I hate this roller coaster... emoticon

    Idea: take and print a picture of your current project and keep it where you'll see it all day. . .maybe track it from work location to work location. Quite often, pause to look at the pic and remember your enjoyment and positivity trying to carry that positivity into today.

Even better - have someone take a pic of you working on or with your project.

We need to keep the positive in front of us always - blocking out the negativity waiting to strike.

Quilting day

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

I love Tuesdays. Why? Therapy day!!!! I get to quilt all day, usually about 8 hours or so. I just love to quilt and I feel so good when I get a quilt made. I finished a top today...will quilt it next week. We have two new women coming to our quilting group, both of whom are new to quilting. One of them commented today that she was having FUN!! So cool...
Another good thing about quilting day is that I eat less. I am so focused on my projects...who has time to eat??lol I think I should tell my DH that every day should be quilting day!!!

I feel like I am finally starting to gain some control again over what I eat. It feels so good! I want to maintain this control and remain excited about having it!
