One emotional day at a time.

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Wow, how does one try to get past a really bad, tearful weekend? I am working so hard at my June weight and exercise goals and now I have been handed an emotional burden that I just do not know for how much longer I can carry it.

I am an emotional eater, but I also get so absolutely sick when I am upset. So, I have not been eating much this weekend, and when I have eaten, it certainly was not healthy choices.

And to top it off, I have caught my son's cold! So I feel horrible, with an ear and sinus infection! Yeah!

I wish that I had family that I could talk to. I actually have two sisters, one of which lives 20 minutes away. But my family is SO into gossip that anything that is said is just fodder for the rumor mill. Nothing can be talked about without it coming back to you in the wrong way. And in the wrong way is pretty much a guarantee!

I guess I will continue to exercise, working things out on my own, the best that I can. Maybe things will work out, a day at a time.

    Hopefully everything is better as of Today. Sorry I didn't stop by sooner. But One day I want you to remember. We are always here on Spark for you But God is There with YOU ALWAYS. He says to cast All of your CARE on HIM. ALL. He knows just what to do. If it had not been for my Faith in God I would not be where I am today. We all have trials and tribulations and it is our choice to Give it over to God Who Always knows just what to do. Weeping may endure for a night but JOY comes in the morning. He's a very present Help in the time of trouble. I always choose Him because He NEVER gossips. Many Blessings to You in Every Way. He Loves You!

    Blogging like this may help. You might also "blog" in a word document in case you decide you don't want to talk about private matters here. I can't talk with my family much, either. I've found writing on Spark has helped, even if just to get my thoughts out. emoticon

    You are doing exactly the right thing--sparking. There is plenty of wonderful help here. Just having people listen is a huge help/ You won't feel so alone with big worries and responsibilities!
