Bringing Order to Chaos

Saturday, August 18, 2012

It is all about control. Getting back into Sparkpeople has done a lot for my attitude, in a good way....

By being mindful of my eating have brought order to the chaos of my life. I am a single mom with two young kids. I manage an office that is in the public eye. I am extremely busy and stressed out most of the time and feel like much of my life is out of my control. . . I eat to calm myself and that can get out of control too.

Tracking brings a sense of order to it all. If I know I am getting all the nutrients I need, it helps me realize that food is not really what I need. I am working on trying to find things that are satisfying and don't involve calories.

It is not at easy as it sounds.
