Answering 50 Questions

Friday, June 14, 2013

It is amazing how a questionnaire can evoke such strong feelings. I was crying by the end. Who do I miss, What was the kindest thing any has done for me, what would I do if I had the money ... all of these questions make me really evaluate my life. Or maybe I need to get out more.


On Vacation

Thursday, June 13, 2013

On vacation visiting my family in Kansas. The visit has been wonderful so far. I got some sewing done, enjoyed spending time with my mom and dad, and got a relaxing facial.

I have also fallen off the wagon and have eaten so many bad things for me. I know I gained weight (despite my mother's dryer having a reputation for shrinking clothes.) It is very hard to stay on track when both parents are such good cooks.

I hate to say it, but I am going to have to be one of those people who gets back on track when they get home.

Today is a little better. We cleaned the apartment last night and I finished most of it this morning. Had to get a new vacuum since the old one started smoking. It was over 12 years old so what you going to do?

This got me thinking about how things wear out and how, eventually, so will some of me (some already has or feels like it.) Then I read an article in Prevention magazine that talked about a woman's year of aging backwards. She ate much healthier than she had in the past and exercised more. This reversed her aging process in a way because she felt much better and had more energy. In the article it talked about chronological age being just a number but how take care of yourself reflects not only on how you feel but also can physically make you look younger.

Well give me two helpings of that! I could care less about looking 25 again as long as I feel it. emoticon

    Haha, yes, smoking vacuums are best replaced as soon as possible.

I have come to the conclusion that those stupid health food, sugar banning Nazi's are probably right, so I too am eating better.

Good luck on the Che changes ahead of you. emoticon

I am finding it hard to eat healthier. It makes me feel like I am failing as a person. I feel tired all the time and I have no outside purpose besides myself. This is hard focusing on myself because I don't like what I see. emoticon

    I know what you mean. It's one day at a time and you can do this! As you get healthier and you start to see results, you WILL be encouraged! You are worth it and you will feel so much better as you make it a habit to eat healthier. When I fall off the healthy eating wagon, the first thing that goes is my mood. I become despondent, mad, sad, hopeless and completely without energy. Keep your head up and keep on going! You got this! emoticon emoticon

    Eating is what I have the most trouble with. A book I read talked about habits & how long it takes to make a habit whether it is good or bad. It suggested trying to change it in stages. With eating it suggested just starting with one meal or snack & for a month making that thing healthy everyday. After a month they suggested adding a second meal & doing the same thing. It did help me for a while & then i fall off the wagon (mainly because i'm a stress eater) but when things are getting out of control I go back to this & it does help me get it back under control. I also found if I started with breakfast I tended to eat a little healthier all day just because I didn't want to blow what I started. Hang in there!!! You are not alone!!!
