We All Eat

Friday, October 18, 2013

“We all eat, and it would be a waste of opportunity to eat badly.” –Anna Thomas

I had a bump yesterday. I didn’t eat wisely. I missed the opportunity to nourish myself. The food I ate was not nourishing. I may have been feeding the emotional appetite, but not the appetite of my body.

Start fresh today. Resetting my mind. It’s a clear day out there and I plan on a nice walk. (A gentle walk, just around the block to strengthen my ankle. It feels really good. It was a mild sprain and the chiropractor really helped it heal quickly.)

I have grandchildren coming for an overnighter tonight. I was with them all day yesterday without feeling like it was stressful. But I hadn’t had enough calories and nourishment by the afternoon and chose a convenient snack of my favorite candy bar. Not just the regular size, but the king size. This led to more snacking and a binge.

New day.

I am not saying that we need any forgiveness from God for our poor eating, but we canhave new beginnings and we can forgive ourselves and move on. I am reminded in my mind about a song I used to sing at church that hints at this. Don’t remember the name, but it’s from the book of Lamentations in the Bible.

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will hope in him.””

    It could be that God is the only 'person' (power) that does not care about our weight or what we eat but loves us uncondionally, hmm. I guess He (She/ It) would want us to be happy. I think He/She/It would be worried more about our emotions, the type that tend to lead to overeating.

    I hope you have a great day,and great weekend!

    Pushing the RESET button is often a necessary part of this lifestyle change journey!!

    As long as you reset, and start again fresh the next day, you are learning more each day and moving forward.
