Thinking About Food

Thursday, February 07, 2013

Well, today I am going to be on the road. I have several of my kiddos I get to visit today. I am a social worker and work with Special Needs Children. Most of my kiddos are chronically or terminally ill. The best part of my job is going out to see them. I love them all...:) It's true when they say these kids are resilient. It's amazing how they just go with the flow of things.

This will also be a challenge because I have never in my life put any forethought into what I will be eating during the day. Usually on days like today when I'm out on the road doing home visits I usually stop off for fast food. So, I am concerned about what I will be doing today. I have had such a temptation of fast food and today would be especially easy to just give in. I know now that I have to prepare things...meals...before hand but that is a habit that I am going to have to develop because I have never done it before.

I'm finding that as much as I don't want to obsess about food I am having to put an awful lot of thought into it! What a paradox this has become! So, I'm heading out on the road and will be away from a computer. Please pray for me that I will be successful today in maintaining.

Have a happy, healthy and blessed day everyone!

    Good luck! I'll be praying. Maybe if you are having the cravings for fast food you just need to figure out what each place has that can be healthy. Look on their websites and check the calorie and fat content of your favorite items one night. That way if you have a strong craving to stop you can make healthier choices and won't be completely depriving yourself. I've had to do this because if I deprive myself for something I'm craving then I just get cranky and end up ruining my diet/exercise program even more.

You're doing great!! emoticon
