I know....I have been gone for a few days. We went out of town for a little get away, which was great. I kept on track and even exercised while at the hotel. I was very pleased with myself.
Now...bad habits. The other day while exercising with a friend we started talking about our eating habits. It was a real eye opener for me. Guess what I have been doing, rewarding myself and everyone around me with food. We were taught this was the way to do it from our own mothers. When my mom took me to the doctor's office, if I was good, I was rewarded with Mc Donald's after the visit. And the Doctor had even given me a lolly pop! If I wasn't feeling good I was rewarded with ice cream or pudding. If I want to do something special for my husband or my kids I fix them their favorite meal or dessert. And the list went on. Can you understand what my problem was? I was loving everyone around me including myself with food! And not very healthy food at that.
So, what do I do? I need to find other was of telling someone I love them or myself without feeding them. Now that is a hard one. If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them.
Maybe for little kids after a doctor appointment a trip to the park would be nice.
For hubby, lovemaking would be great and think of the calories you would burn!
Food for thought,everyone.
'Have a great day.
