Sorry for the later post than usual but here are a few pics from yesterday:)
The sister put this meal together in fifteen minutes. There were a few unexpected events last night and the sister came to the rescue.
Hopefully, their retina’s don’t burn out from playing on the ipad for 10 hours straight.
And then we had some fun playing with photobooth. The little one has turned into a lap dog and at all times she has to be on top of one of us even if that means sitting on my head. She has even started barking, I am getting worried.
Time to talk about something that I am kind of nervous opening up about, but I think that 92% of woman have struggled with this at one point in their life so I thought why not talk about it!?!?
Lately I have been eating as though I am still running 70 miles a week. Not because I am hungry and not because I am sleep walking to the kitchen in the middle of the night and finishing off the plate of cookies.
I have been trying to find love/comfort/peace in food. For the life of it, it won’t love me back though:)
I am definitely a foodie and probably always will be and that isn’t the problem- the problem occurs when I overeat and try to fill the void of running in my life with my 3rd helping of ice cream. I am not saying I am going to cut out sweets or my favorite foods because you know that would last all of 4 hours but rather before I eat something besides my normal meals or when I am truly hungry I am going to ask myself…..
WHAT DO I REALLY NEED RIGHT NOW?
-Watch season 5 of the Hills for the 83rd time?
-Venting season with my journal?
-Calling my mom and talking for 150 minutes?
-Going on a walk with BIllster?
-A yoga class?
-A girls date?
Once I go through my list trying to figure out what I really need at the moment and a costco bag of swedish fish still comes in first place than of course I will eat it but I am just really wanting to learn how to listen to my body/mind/soul to figure out what it is I am really wanting!
Just wanted to share with you my thoughts on learning how to fulfill my EMOTIONAL needs without being able to run and without competing in a food eating contest every day of my life:)
Do you have experience with me (come on help a sister out so I don’t feel so awkward:)
When you are tired/stressed/upset what is something HEALTHY that you turn to to feel better? (No, booze is not the correct answer:)
