friday i was issued the challenge of no junk until valentines.
yeah. failed that.
the birthday cake flavored creme oreos just jumped into my shopping cart. they're no longer around. [they're like crack]
but the way i see it, my challenge starts fresh/new today. and i've done alright today. maybe a bit too much coffee, but otherwise nothing i seriously regret. lol. that's a plus.
and today's sermon got to me. talked about being a tree by water, receiving everything it needs and sending its roots deep. made me flash back to conversations from this summer. and after church my pastor caught up to me. she's also been helping me work through some stuff [yes i'm double teaming my issues w/ pastor and counselor]. anyhoo. it'd been a few weeks since i had a real conversation with her. and even today, it was just a gentle prodding toward her task - read a book she gave me a month (0r more) ago. i also need to really check in with my counselor, not just shoot her an email....
and i've said it before, i'll say it again - me trying to avoid the unpleasant parts of emotion/life/mind leads me to excess [food or drink]. tis not a good thing. *sigh*
but i'm learning.
and more importantly, i'm trying. sorta
