Snow day

Friday, February 01, 2013

So there is no school today. I'm glad to get to spend the day with the kids but I really needed to go to town and cash my check and stuff, now I can't. So here I sit wanting to eat badly . No seriously. It's bad when you have to talk yourself out of stuff like that.

I really wish I didn't have food on the brain all the time.
Here's a pic of our snow. I hate it lol.

I think I'll go read some blogs.

Keep rockin'

    its not bad to have food on your brain your body may have gotten smaller but you were not small for a long time and it takes the brain a lot longer to change than it does the body. those habits required a long time to make and it will take awhile to think differently. doesnt mean anything is wrong, just pop in a slice of mint sugar free gum or if your able to brush your teeth. it always helps me get distracted :)

    I'm training myself when food is on the brain drink some water give it a little time. That way I will know if I'm hungry or bored. More often then not I'm just bored. Being bored is no reason to eat. It just means I need to find something for me to do. The snow looks like fun.

    Beautiful picture! It sure looks like a great day to get outside and make a snow man. I'm always thinking of food, too. As a matter of fact, I just ate a lucious piece of carrot cake. If we had fresh snow, I'd go outside, make a snowman, and work it off. Alas, no snow man building material is available, so I'll just squeeze in a quick walk. Enjoy the time with your kids!

    The pic of snow is beautiful! I wish I didn't have food on the brain all the time too..I just find so much solace and comfort from the effect of food. I just gotta change that. I get certain food items in my head then that's what I want! And I usually give myself what I want. I feel like having a menu to follow is the best thing. .then at least there's accountability-from myself. I think you are doing great-hang in there. :)

    Your snow is lovely. Wish I could take it off your hands for you.

    I want to live there haha. We don't get snow days, or cold days. Why, it can blizzard and we will still have school. It can be -47C with the wind chill (-52.6F) and we still go to school. I know because it was that temperature yesterday. However, although most cars will still run, that extreme cold is too cold for most buses, so kids that are bused may have it lucky.

    On the topic of food on the brain- I swear, it's on my brain all the time as well. Although I can distract it when I'm really into a T.V. show, working, shoveling snow, mowing the lawn, working out, or generally being active or busy. I have at times 'talked myself down from the binge ledge' or had an argument with myself so I don't sit and eat a pile of something I shouldn't. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Ugg. Lately I've been trying to imagine exactly how that piece of food will make my body feel after I eat it, NOT how it tastes. Lets face it- most everything tastes good. But not everything makes my stomach feel good (and lots of chips/salty items make me gain weight). I have to say, this month that imaging game I play has helped keep me away from some foods!

    We've gotten about a foot and a half of snow over the past week and I hate it too :( I am so overly done with winter! Blogs especially the success stories often push back how bad I want to eat everything in my kitchen. Good luck and make great choices today!
