...uh...about that food demon...

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

...uh...about that food demon... Yes... he is STILL working on me... why won't he just give up? Perhaps he thinks that I will give up... me??? NO!!! NEVER!!! I will keep fighting the good food fight... (and also the flu) When you are sick you only want comfort food... and , well, not very many things comfort you when your stomach is upset.. And besides, the best thing I did for myself was sleep... over 9 hours last night... I awoke with a zest to start the day...well, a little less than zest, but nonetheless.

The demon started early, "pack extra snacks to get through the morning" he said... I ignored him. Apple and half a banana worked just as well, and I made it through... no comfort foods... less coffee than normal, and more herbal tea... plus water... yes, I actually drank water and I know that is what saved my day! I think the demon works in many ways. Yes, he tells me to stop for drive-thru... he tells me that "just one" won't hurt, and I now believe he wants to keep me away from water, so I have to keep the glass near and refill my container... Who really knew he had that much power???

Better choices, but don't blame the demon... I figured it is his job... I am the one who says yes or no to the food I eat... wow, that was hard to type...let alone think... Okay... One More Day... on my way!

He will take over if you let him but I stopped eating candy for Lent and that was a biggy because I was into candy for some reason and chocolate at that. Have not touched a piece since Ash Wednesday. I make up my own trail mix and I keep a 6 oz small bowl beside me and eat a piece of cereal with a raisin and only eat about half of it in a day. Then I have all kinds of fruit for the day. You keep up the good work and don't let him in your mind. God bless you always.

    Alot like Sobriety isn't it?
One day at a time and steps one two three...

1) Admit powerlessness
2) Believe in a bigger God
3) decide to turn it over

Difficult yes but only do it one day at a time....
Remember that Ginger said, "you don't have to eat the whole elephant at once"
I love you
