Take the Time

Saturday, February 26, 2011

It has turned cold again, I am getting another sinus infection and I am so ready for spring! I have been trying to keep my workouts up although I missed yesterday. I have a bad habit of letting chores and housework interfere with MY time. I have to keep remembering the best thing I can do for my family and my co-workers is to take care of myself so I am healthy and happy. I have also forgotten to take time to replenish my spirit. I don't go to church regularly although I was raised doing so. What lifts my spirit and fills me with the tingling , full sensation that I know as God's Love is old time gospel music. I stumbled on the Gaither hour on TV tonight .It feels good! No matter what it is for you FIND SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN AND HAVE FAITH IN. It makes the happy times brighter and the sad times more tolerable.

I developed a mantra for myself to stop myself from stopping a Sonic or Mcdonalds for my comfort food on the way home. "Food is not for comfort , it is for nourishment.Food will not control me, I will only eat when I'm hungry"
For my runs I have " I am a healthy and vibrant woman, I am running toward my future" emoticon emoticon

    I like your Mantra, it makes perfect sense. Of course, as you know, our behaviors don't always make sense! Have you read any of Geneen Roth's books? Her "When Food is Love" and "Women, Food and God" are very helpful. She talks alot about eating for reasons other then hunger. Hope you have a wonderful and healthy day!

    You are so right about SO many things in your blog! You do deserve to take time and take care of yourself. And leaning on the Lord is the perfect way to comfort yourself instead of a place where the food is cheap and the comfort minute! Great job doing your workouts while you are congested. I get discouraged easily when I can't breathe but have found if I just will try, it usually goes better than I think it will. Give yourself a big pat on the back ... emoticon
