Such a bad, sad week but no ice cream for me
Friday, April 19, 2013
This has certainly been a trying week for everyone hasn't it? And it's not over yet. They are still on the hunt for the second bomber in Boston and the city is on lockdown. I can't even imagine.
Plus, what happened it West, Texas. I live in Texas but I am five hours away from West. But still us Texans stick together. How awful for those poor folks. My heart and prayers go out to everyone affected.
Things are not going smoothly at home either. My daughter, her husband, her two year old and now a two month old baby have been living with us for seven months. Things get tense and my home is not peaceful. They had to move in with us because he was unemployed for so long.
Last night after dinner I just told myself I wanted to sit down and eat a huge bowl of ice cream. But I caught myself and thought it over. I knew if I resisted I would be glad the next morning, and I was.
I know I am a stress eater. I have been listening to a great audio book called "Made to Crave" by Lysa TerKeurst. She is a Christian writer who talks about her struggles to lose weight and a decision to eat healthy and what she learned along the way. Excellent book.
These good words by Lysa have been getting into my brain as I listen and I am taking notes! Losing weight should also be a spiritual journey and she talks about that. She is funny and smart. You should check it out.
Meanwhile, the Blue Bell homemade vanilla is still in the freezer, and I stuck to my healthy eating plan and calorie range.
Now I headed to the gym!
