So ready for the new year and some healthy choices

Thursday, December 13, 2012

I admit to having a rough year. All was well-ish, till my dil was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Almost everything else (troubles) I could spend my time thinking "it may get better" , people who were acting crazy "may get help" , basically I just kept thinking I need to ride out the tough times. But terminal is something pretty hard to deal with, because well, its terminal. Which means more unresolved business....if you let it. And it seems I did.

My wheels pretty much fell off and I got into such a bad emotional state and ended up with a paralyzing exhaustion which is not my usual style. Needless to say and true to form....emotional eating became the name of the game called life and pretty soon I was back where I started, except I had no energy to do anything about it.

Then I finally had a weeks reprieve. Such a short holiday, crammed with hiking, trailing, stair-ing lol. Just activity from sunup till sundown and BINGO I feel worlds better despite the vehicle packing up. Still waiting for the quote.

I am back with healthy choices for eating, back on a walking regime too. I just wish I knew the secret to losing the weight and then keeping it off. As an emotional eater, thats going to be my BIGGEST challenge yet. And that's what I am going to work on starting January 1st 2013. I set that date, but have begun already.

This is me......


...and I hope to pull it off yet again in 2013.

    Don't lose your determination Celeste', emoticon

I shared this thought with another sister; Go for a walk when you are feeling stressed, take a big bottle of water, start talking to Jehovah and not only throw the problem you are stressed about on him, also realize that not only is your emotional health involved, the physical is as well. Ask him to help you avoid what is bad for your health.
Now here is the key, once the conscience is trained to know bad from good you must trust it!
YOU KNOW, what foods are bad for your health and goal and what to avoid, trust that you will be better off without them. ( It's okay to be moderate occasionally with them)

Walk
Talk
Let go
Get filled with;
Holy Spirit
and
Water

By the time your back from your walk you may not even remember you wanted to indulge!

    Celeste', we man never master that "secret" in this system of things, but think where you would be if you were not trying to manage your health! Up, down, up, down is not so great for us, but I figure it sure beats Up, up, up, up when it comes to the scale! AND, even if you can't get the Kilos or pounds to stay off, at least you are working your muscles, making your heart strong (physically) and moving...all of which will allow you to be around long enough to finally figure out that other question...how to get it off and keep it off. emoticon
