My life is getting more challenging as I go.

Sunday, June 17, 2012

I started out my day at 8:30am. an hour past when I wanted to get up. We have had workers in here everyday all week. Now on Monday they need to still come. The house repairs were to be done yesterday but still a toilet problem. I'm hoping to get a new handicap toilet like I though I was going to get. They don't think that was the problem but when they put it back together still have the same problem.
All this is stressing me out but, I refuse to go and get food to deal with the tension. So I have been busy walking and computing then shopping this evening. I walked 355 steps today and for me that is 3 time the amount on a normal day. Remember I just started walking with just my cane in the house. Now even outside for the yard only. I have to be careful not to over do it. I sure don't want to fall again.
I'v been doing really good eating 3 meals a day with little snacking. My emotional and binge eating has been so much better. I think before I put anything in my mouth.

One thing one the thinking before I eat is remembering what I look like. Then what my heart must be doing to keep up. Then I wonder if I eat that is the stroke first or the heart attack. Then the big picture comes to my mine. Then I don't eat what I was thinking about eating. I look up to my Lord and say thank you dear Lord for giving me these thought and this information to educate myself and get my health back in control.

It was another day of healthy eating.
