Well my post from yesterday was just filled with Joy and cheer YIKES! I have those days every once in a while. Everyone has their burdens mine not being harder than what anyone else is going through.
Everyone has their rough days, bumps in the road, tough times, stressfull days etc……. I have got into some real bad habbits. One being thinking that fatter is safer (even though I hate being fat). Another is using food to avoid coping with stress, hard times, sadness, and yes even anger and bitterness. I have to learn to find better coping skills than shoving food into my mouth!!!! here are some things I need to set up a action plan for.
~When my 6 year old son’s autism and sensory issues are on overdrive and makes the day really overwhelming.
~When homeschool gets me down and I dont feel like I am doing enough to teach him or make a difference.
~Dealing with isolation that comes with having a special needs child.
~Dealing with oh so fun family issues UGH!
Other than that life is really good.
I have four sons whom I love so very much.
I have a wonderful husband who is such a good, kind hearted , loving man.
Even though we lost our farm (due to debts from medical bills from son) we have a roof over our heads in a nice decent area.
We have food on our table, clothes on our backs, my husband has a good job, our health in general is good.
I have a lot to be thankful for.
Now I need to find a way to NOT eat when the stress hits and bumps in the road rock my day.
Step 1~ Write here daily (more if needed) my computer therapist! LOL
step2~write down everything I eat & drink
step 3~try and move (workout) everyday
step 4~try and find other things to take my mind off of stress and OFF of food (taking a walk, reading, cleaning, a craft or hobby, Facebook, Pintrest….)
What do you all do when you feel like eating out fo stress, being bored, sad etc…….. How do you fill the void ?
