Isn't it amazing how we get into a mood, which makes us feel like eating chocolate, junk food, pop, etc, and the mood gets worse so we eat more of those disgusting foods, and our mood gets worse, and we eat more, etc, etc, etc...even the food I am allergic to has the same effect as junk food...what a vicious cycle...I (we) know that eating healthy foods helps our moods and yet we still succumb to the vicious cycle of eating the bad foods when we are in a mood.
I have recently switched meds again for my perimenopause issues. The progesterone didn't help all the other symptoms, only stopped the bleeding. So we switched just last week back to a hormone pill...I know the change in pills will take it's time to be helpful, but in the meantime I am so crabby, tired and run down I just want to crawl in a hole. I, of course, have been eating all the chocolate and goodies in the house.
Yesterday's family issues and today the 2yo is crying about everything my nerves are shot and fried and I am ready to explode. My boys have been modeling better eating habits than I have been...they go to the fridge and take out the leftover veggies and eat those...wow a 4 yo and a 2 yo have better eating habits than I do...I should be ashamed, but proud that I have taught them so well thus far.
