reasons or excuses for eating

Sunday, July 07, 2013

In a crowd of people all standing around eating and drinking on an unusually hot day....
This was the scene that had me craving food yesterday. It was so warm and I was uncomfortable. Wanting for something fun to do, some one fascinating to talk to and here I was being as boring as ever. I was no help. I was not fascinating. I was just hot and cranky.
I found something non gluten that I could eat.... and I did.
It was high in protein! That's a lovely excuse I was telling myself.
But I had also eaten plenty! And needed to step away!
It wasn't easy. I wasn't happy with myself. I avoided the beautiful cake and the urge to taste the icing. (who knew if was gluten contaminated or not)

Getting away from the environment was a step but the urge to eat junk was still with me.
I came home and sought out gluten free junk. purge

Not a good combo.

Today I will tackle the issue and get back on the horse again.

    Stress will do that to you. Sometimes drinking water helps cool you down and make you full too.

Little Things

Monday, July 01, 2013

Today has been a day to get little things done. Ya know those things that don't make a big difference to the rest of the world but still need to be done.
I want to get more done but am pleased to have some things off of my 'to do' list which was getting overwhelming.
When I get overwhelmed, I get stressed and I eat and not sensible things...I eat anything in sight.
Not a good thing.
So here is to the little things! May we keep them little!

    You can do it! Great job on getting a few things done to cross off your list! I cleaned my desk at work which gets very piled up with things that need to be put away so I did a few things too! Have a great evening!

A new light

Saturday, June 29, 2013

I've been looking at food in a different light as of the past few days. I look at it and think, " is this something that will be a healer and a value to my body? " This has helped me put a few things down and walk away.
This isn't easy for me.
Besides being the poison of my body it is also my addiction. Unlike most addictions which people can go cold turkey from, I have to use my 'addiction' in moderation. As most addicts, I want to think I can control the lust for the addiction, but in reality, I can't.
It is only by the grace and power of God that I am able to walk away. For these precious moment, I am grateful.

Poison/cure/ grey area

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Food in many forms is my poison. It is the enemy of my body when it includes wheat, rye, barley or hot peppers.
Some foods are the cure for the damage these poisons have caused.
I'm still trying to figure out which 'cures' are appropriate for this body as it heals. I wish I had an indicator light to tell me what is okay and what isn't.

A big part of my problems is the 'grey' areas in between the 'poison' and the 'cure' items. they are the items that I use as comfort foods...junk. chocolate, soda, baked goods and sugar.
I need to find a balance for these items in my life with the 'cure' foods.

Food is a terrible addiction. I can't live with some of it, and I can't live without all of it. Where is my balance?

I need to work on catching myself doing the negative thoughts and turn it around to a positive as I would for a friend. I am typically very encouraging to my friends. I am making an effort to be a friend to myself.
This is new to me.
