Good morning!

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 ?

  1. I keep a gratiture gournal and write down at least 5 things that I’m thankful for every day. When I get down it helps to put things into perspective and makes me realize that things aren’t as bad as I make them out to be in my mind.

    I journal, exercise, drink a cup of tea or coffee, write down a plan of what I’d like to accomplish this year.

  2. I like sunnydayz action plan of workingout and having coffe/tea and wrighting stuff down. I find that wrighting stuff down, and seeing ir really helps…that is one way how I got over an aweful breakup.

    I also think if you are going out for a walk, take your son with you a few times a week. It will be good for him aswell.

    I hope you feel better very very soon! (hugs)
