There is a plan inside my head somewhere

Sunday, December 15, 2013

Today is a good day to record some thoughts. I've been struggling with my eating choices for several months. There are several reasons all having to do with life. And its pointless to list them all, because even though they are different issues from a year ago, or 5 years ago, I'm still using the same old habits to deal with them.

I had a thought a few days ago, that since I started this journey 5 years ago, I have always gotten back on the right path after straying. So there is no reason to think that I can't do the same now. I just need to organize my thoughts, plan my actions, ask for help, and follow through.

And that's where the blogging comes in. Writing things down organizes my thoughts and helps me deal with all the naggy "feelings" that try to hijack my brain. I am through with that. I want to create my happiness through good choices. Eating to find happiness only leads to disappointment. I have to repeat that to myself over and over.

The other parts I am promising myself: making time for exercise every day, making time for prayer and scripture study every day, and focusing on discovering what I am really hungry for and satisfying that.

    I so agree with you: the planning is key. If it's not in my house, I won't be tempted to eat it!! If I've pretracked yesterday what I'm going to eat today, it's already decided!!
