ACT!

I have been eating everything in sight. I stayed home again last. Just feeling exhausted again. I know this crazy cycle of going to bed too early, getting up too early is killing me. I just can't seem to make it past 8pm. Get a life Dana. I know, I know there is plenty to do, it's just I don't feel like doing anything. I also know that doing the uncomfortable at the time thing is the thing to do. Again, it's just doing it. I am thinking this pity pot is getting OLD! I can hardly stand myself!

This morning I am going to the bird park with a friend. Then it's back home to do some more cleaning and organizing. That really does make me feel better. It makes me feel like I have some kind of control....lol. Then out to my daughter's to sit with the kids. I am thinking about taking the boys over night tonight. It's just I like to go to church. It's hard to take 2 little boys to church. So we'll see.

I don't know what's going on. I did so good food wise over the holidays, now I choose to fall apart. WTHell? Oh the brain, she is fickle...no?? I am going to be on my knees more till I feel better. Always a good idea to ask a Power Greater than myself for help. He knows me and he loves me. I also know that his too will pass. It never lasts for long.

Since I can't eat my feelings away I have to feel them. OUCH! That's when I want turn to food. Even though I know that food is not the answer. So today is a new day and I am going to do those things that will set me up for success. The first being to make a food list and then go food shopping. Nothing sounds good. It's like I have forgotten what to buy. I am sabotaging myself. I know it. Now, what am I going to do about it?

Keep the mood and the food real.......know the signs of sabotage. ACT!

  1. I hope you feel better soon. Do something to shake up the routine. Sounds like you have some plans. Make the decisions when they are easy.

    Hugs to you....

  2. I hate this cage we are in!! I have so often done well for special events and then fallen apart afterwards. Not this year though. I just plain didn't do well over the holidays. Like you, I am also really fighting with going ahead and just doing what's uncomfortable. "just feel the fear and do it anyway" is the mantra I have given my husband regarding his own life and he says that is one of the most important principles he has learned. But I am having a hard time applying it.

  3. I wonder what is going on with us. I've been feeling the same way the past week. Maybe it's just that we focused so hard on getting through the end of the year we are just plain tired. Sounds like you have a good plan though. Hang in there, we'll both get through this. Seems it usually passes as quickly as it came. To bad we don't live closer we could hang out and talk. *hugs*

  4. So hard getting rid of that -eating everything in sight- when it hits ya! I think getting out with a friend is a good idea and I always love organizing my home- so hopefully that will help you! :) Hang in there my friend!

  6. I hate the feelings of unrest (no pun intended). And I hate having to FEEL your feelings! You have company, my friend.

    Hope you can get some inspiration at the grocery store - maybe wander in the produce section for a while and see what looks good, or different?

    Have a good day...stay strong!

  8. Hugs to you at this tough time. I loathe those tough days. I was once given some advice of tackling the tough stuff first in the day then the rest of it will seem easy after you have achieved your goal.

    Keep your chin up and keep on going!

  9. I think there are a few of us feeling like this at the moment. I have tried doing a shake up today to see if I can get motivated again. Time is running out for me, I gotta do something!!!

  10. I've got you beat on the bedtime--one night this past week it was 7:30 for me! Very sad, I know--I'll blame it on the cold.

  11. I've been trying to meditate with a weight loss CD during the day and I fall asleep every time. Then I don't sleep well at night. Vicious circle. Also, we want to eat when we are tired to get that energy boost. I've been turning to caffeine to make it through the day. Not the best choice.

  12. I had a pretty flakey and so-so week myself. So far so good today. I hit the gym hard and have not eaten anything I should not have eaten. WISH I could say that for a few more days this past week! Hang in there...stay strong. Up your vitamin D dose, too...that can help this time of year!! Hugs!

  13. I hope you feel better soon. I think it's the lack of sunshine or something. :)

  14. Hi there :o)
    I hear ya on the "I was doing so well, what happened?"
    When we shock our bodies and do REALLY well, our body kinda goes into shock and it rebels against us [we get nibbly and sluggish for no good reason]. I think the trick is to work against it, like wearing new shoes in - You know it's gotta be done because you want to look good in them, and eventualy they'll get comfortable :o)

    If you are taking the boys to church every so often, make up a "goody bag" colouring in books and crayons, cars, figurines etc. And they can only play with that bag at church. That way they'll be eager to get into it, and be relatively quiet for the duration of the messege :o)

  15. Winter is always dark and some what depressing.

    Try have some happy thoughts of Spring... fresh laundry in the sun. I love the smell of fresh laundry, hanging in the sun.
