Cookies, cookies and more cookies! Ugh...why is it when I feel icky I tend to eat junk food more? When things are going well and I feel great, I'm working out daily and in a groove, I can walk right past those cookies and have no second thoughts about it. Then, the moment I start feeling under-the-weather or just plain icky it's like they have a direct line of access to my brain and I can't stop them!
My therapist says I can stop them. I just choose not to. I'm not sure how I feel about this. I really feel quite strongly that when I try to resist (or try to tell myself that it won't make me feel better) my whole being gets quite upset and throws a major tantrum. I'm too tired to fight it.
I wonder if I'm the only one that feels this way? A lot of my non-spark friends say when they don't feel well the last thing they think of is junk food. I'm just not wired like that. I wish I was.
On another note - I have an ultrasound scheduled for Monday morning. I'm hoping I get some sort of idea as to why I'm feeling the way I'm feeling. Unfortunately I've felt pretty much the same since Tuesday at 2:30AM. Even Motrin isn't really helping. Sure, it takes the edge off, but I still have the pressure and discomfort. Quite frankly, this is also causing me to feel more and more tired.
This weekend we have 2 family reunions coming up. There's swimming, hiking, baseball, badmitton, fishing and volleyball...I usually love being active during these reunions...but I won't be able to do it. I think that sucks.
On a happier note - my son passed his white belt test and will graduate tonight to yellow belt! He's so happy...when he walked out of the school he said "I went in as a boy and came out as a man"! What a kid!
