my appetites for life are huge
Monday, May 21, 2012
there are many ways to feel good about yourself. some days i am perfectly attuned to this. other days are, frankly, beyond comprehension.
the break-up of a relationship is hard. on 'my plate' this week... ha.
i choose to stay as grounded as possible and not run with it as an excuse to chow down.
i have no choice but to examine my eating habits and behaviors with food. too much? too little? too forbidden? nope, not that one; i never make it negative or 'bad' food. i just eat too much. portion sizes are monstrous sometimes. my appetites for life are huge, as above. i get to figure out why i need to eat for one or two or sometimes for three??? the catchy phrase 'what's eating you' applies.
i am back to brushing my teeth more. when i want stress food i drink water, and then brush my teeth. by breaking the oral fixation-- to get me to reset my desires and motives to eating-- helps me redirect. then if i really want the food i have it.
so good to be back here to allow for reflection, and breathing room with my life. the clarity helps.
have a peaceful monday and a great week, sparkworld
