An Emotional Morning

Friday, March 08, 2013

I woke early and my body decided not to exercise , but as I marched while brushing my teeth then started to get my workout clothes on and my shoes and then my brain took me to my exercise bike...whoa I said this is your easy day...I still proceeded to get on the bike and ride and then I remember the days when just brushing my teeth and getting dressed for work was so hard to do....I began to weep for that so very over weight women. who struggles each step in her life....I'm not sure how to explain but then I was crying for the strong healthy women I have mind shot back to this last year of turmoil and changes that have take place....and the turmoil now of taking care of my Dad, hoping he will be independent again but knowing that might not happen....the excitement of the new house the emotions of moving once again to a new city a new life style.....I am so over come with all sorts of feeling ...not knowing where it is all coming from....

I go to the bathroom to wash my face and get myself under control, I don't want DH to hear or see me so upset......and I won't be able to explain if I'm sad or happy ..I am some of both....
so now I have my emotions under control.....I take some deep breaths, so relaxing stretches....

Then it stuck me....I did not eat, in fact till this minute I did not even think of food....I allowed myself to just feel my feeling, good one, sad one, scary ones get the picture...
maybe the best thing I have learned over the last 7 years is to just let my emotions out, just let my feelings feel....then move never helps for more than a few minutes.....

So now I a feeling so proud and happy with myself....I really am a much better person....and emotions are a good reason to hide behind them with food....

Have a healthy and happy Week End and let your emotions out....

    YAY KITT!!! This was an awesome learning experience for you, as hard as it was. Emotions are as much a part of our life as anything, and it's what we do with them that determines how we live. It's good to acknowledge the feelings, learn from them, and then keep moving. You did that beautifully. You so rock, my friend!

    Kitt, I'm so proud of you working through all your feelings and not turning to food. Good for you. With everything that you've been going through lately, it's no wonder you had to have a good cry. I think it's healthy for us to have a good cry when we need to. I believe it helps with the stress. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

    Feeling your emotions instead of feeding them. What a long strange journey, eh?

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing this with us and continuing to be an inspiration and show us it can be done.

    Thanks for sharing this. You are not alone and I have done that same thing. You needed to get those emotions out and yay for you for not using food to do that!

    I am so glad you were able to work through your feelings and "let it out". I am still in the "cramming food in my face to get away from/not feel my feelings" stage. Reading your blog gave me hope. I can survive and thrive through it as you have.
Have a wonderful day! You are amazing!

    What a great blog, Kitt. Emotions can be a scary thing, allowing yourself to feel them , no matter how much it hurts, can definitely move you forward.
Have a wonderful day.

A nice realisation in the midst of hard emotions.

Progress indeed, you are a strong woman, and you are dealing with life throwing you a hard time.
