Tracking Day 14 4-23-13 I'd really like to know.

Hey Spark Friends,

You can tell if a Spark is sticking to her plan by the way she participates...or blogs.

You will see that I have not blogged since 3-13-13. I'm not doing what I'm supposed to do.

I've hit a rough patch with my emotional baggage. You think you are going along just fine
and then BOOM- the Universe puts some big old challenges in your path. "Get around this if you can." it seems to say.

And I'll say, "I'll get around you, but it's gonna take some chocolate and Little Debbies, and I'm gonna have to sit on the couch a little more often b'c I'm tired of these challenges, Mr. Big Universe."

So, here I sit.

The hypnosis challenges still speak to me:

**Sip lots of water - check

**Eat smaller portions - check (no more Happy Meals - even as small as they are, I just eat a small hamburger with half the bun. Hamburger steak patty without baked potato, cabbage soup without peas or carrots. )

**Exercise every day - well, I would, if I had more energy, but this emotional rut is just too deep, I tell myself.

**Get plenty of sleep - I'm going to bed on time.

**Give up the chocolate - AH! there's the rub. It's the only thing that makes me feel good right now.

**Use the EFT Tapping - I do but ... I don't tap till I get to the root. I'm just staying on the surface.

Ok, I'll work on getting to the root of the emotions.

THEY - the experts - keep saying,"It's not what you're eating, it's what's eating you." Does everyone agree with this? Has anyone gotten to the root of their emotions. And when you do, does the Universe just push another big challenge in your path?

Help, I'd really like to know.

    It's not easy getting to the root of our emotional issues, but I am convinced if we talk or journal enough, it comes out and sometimes it's in the things we are afraid to say or write (even in a personal journal). Perhaps you can find someone trusted to talk to or start keeping a private journal and see what comes to the surface. it can't hurt to try.

    If it were not for the Universe, life would be pretty boring, wouldn't it?
    Trying to take what is thrown our way by fate or design is the biggest challenge we face each day.
    I am still trying to figure it out.
    Is there room on your couch for me? I love Little Debbies.

    I hear you on the lack of energy. I've started taking Iron and Vitamin D supplements because both were low and the doc said that they could help with my energy. I haven't noticed any changes yet. Oh, you asked me to tell you what she said about the B12: She said it wouldn't help unless my B12 was low (which it's not), but it wouldn't hurt either, unless my B12 was high (which it's not). Since she said it won't hurt, I am going to start taking it and see if that helps with my energy levels.

    The UNiverse never stops. But our reactions can improve, in my humble opinion.

    When I started this journey I was convinced I didn't have issues. I just liked food to much, right? That's all it is! But alas, it's not true. We all have emotional baggage we carry around. Some try to numb it with alcohol, some with drugs, we do it with food. Knowing that doesn't make it any easier to stop! emoticon
