I guess being like this makes me a typical woman. For illustration purposes, a lot of women lose weight before they get married. They are stressed and busy. It just happens. This woman gained it. I reached for the food that comforts me when things go wrong. This instance is no different and it makes me typical in that when I reach for food in this state, I want it to be carb-ish and satisfying. Carrots, lettuce, or any other green like vegetable, aren't my first choice. They should be, but they aren't. What can I say? I'm still learning and growing in my journey.
I am also struggling with my morning time. I have been getting up between 5 and 5:30 to get my walk in *on days that I can*. This could also be a prime time for me to work on the study I just bought. I need the walk, but I also need the study. So, I've been choosing the walk. I'm still not convinced that it has been the right choice. My body needs the exercise *it even craves it now*, but my soul needs to be fed too. It's such a fine balance in this area too and I wish I had the right answer.
I know it seems like I have my 'stuff' together, but mostly...I don't. My life is not perfect. My food choices aren't always stellar, my children
So, I'm continuing to balance or seek to find balance.
