Stream of Consciousness...

Just things I have been thinking about since I've been gone. Mainly how to process guilt--as a general rule, I don't think it's worth it.

I will never forget this one trip my family and I went on when I was younger. My mom and I and my moms sisters and their families all went to Disney World. And we got up around 7am the first morning to get to the parks early. We ate breakfast...and then around 1pm..My mom and I started getting hungry. My mom was like...oh are we going to have lunch soon? and noone really answered. So a few more hours went by and I felt soo sick b/c I needed to eat something. It was at least 90 degrees. We didn't have anything to eat or drink since 7am..so finally my mom was like...Well were going to eat lunch. I, to this day...can't see how people can skip meals.

I wish I could forget to eat a meal or two.
I would have no problem saying that I was going to take a 15 minute break and eat something.
Food can be a "comfort" in a very macabre way. When I was in college, I used to eat until I was practically comatose.
Take at least a day or two a week. A friend of mine who is a runner has recently had to pay the piper for excess running.
Amen about the guilt.
Great blog. I appreciate it.

Ahhh! My husband is one of those people that can forget to eat or ignore it (most likely a learned behavior from the army) and I CAN NOT DO THAT!! I also make bad choices when I'm ravenous and I am also not the kind of person who can do no breakfast...I like eating!! Maybe that makes us weanies that we prefer not to suffer from hunger pains and we sneak tortilla chips when necessary. So what! We have to do what works for us!

Definitely get your security deposit back! It's kind of like getting a refund check back on taxes.
I used to be one of those that could get to working and not break for food, like your in-laws. However, at the end of the day when it was time to eat, (9 or 10 p.m.) it was very easy to over-eat and fill bloated and blah! Since I've been on SP though, that's all changed. I break to eat lunch and eat dinner closer to 6 or 7 p.m.
I don't know why I wouldn't break for lunch. Sometimes you get that momentum going and you don't want to lose it by taking a break.
Anyway, glad to have you back up. You really look rested and happy!
