It's time to grow up!

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

OHHHH!! Is there some way to stamp my feet and throw a tantrum virtually!! That's what I feel like doing!! The past couple of days have been SO challenging!
In some ways I'm encouraged because the going got tough and I was able to stick to most of my new habits but...
I hate the feeling of wanting to soothe myself with food. I have been struggling with resentment towards a family member and even as I type this I can feel anger welling up inside of me. In the past I would find my place of comfort parked in front of the computer, playing games and eating. Avoiding life and my feelings as much as possible.
Because I don't want to end up back there....I need to face my feelings!


*insert tantrum*.

Can't I just be a two year old for a day? No. Because then I'll end up right back where I
started and worse. So, here's to expressing my feelings, getting healthy and becoming more mature in the process. After all, I am 32. It's about time.

    Thanks ladies!! Last night was rough but I took your advice Heather1969 and went for a run. It felt so good and I was able to run so much easier and faster than a month ago. It was hard not to feel much better by the time I got home. Plus I had to run by the family members house on my route and was able to speak blessing over them as I ran by. It felt good to release my anger and do the opposite of what I was wanting to do.... Thanks again!

    YOU can do this.... you really can. Turn it around and go blow off some steam at the gym, pour all that anger and energy into a really heart pounding workout.... it actually makes you feel better ... PROMISE....

    Plus when I have a get out my anger kind of workout I use positive mantras over and over and over to push out all those thoughts that are really ticking me off at the time.

    Stick with it... this is not an easy journey, but the more you practice at it, the less difficult it will be. Don't punish yourself for having a rough few days, just start fresh. emoticon
