And then my brother died.
Thursday, June 13, 2013
This is not the year I'd hoped for.
My brother died May 20. My husband died February 1. Both were 57 years old.
I'm not holding it against myself that I've been eating like a fiend, but now I want to get back on track with eating. I'm excited about getting back on track.
I've always struggled with emotional eating, and this year I've had significant spells of eating to soothe my soul. I give myself credit for some periods that were actually pretty good. And I'm ready to look forward and re-establish good habits.
And I'll need to figure out how to eat well even when emotionally I'm really not stable yet. That's the task before me.
Here are things that I think will help: Good sleep, getting to bed on time. Spending time outdoors. Just sitting sometimes. Staying current with bills and the yard. Smiling and looking out for the things that I'm grateful for. Keeping healthy foods in the house.
