THE NEW YEAR IS here. I am still strong and determined. I refuse to lay down before the enemy. I will NEVER stop. I still have some heath challenges. I will continue to work thur them. Modify where I can. I have rotator cuff struggles and weights are not used on the upper. arms or arms. Yet I am on the continued search of a new exercise or routine I can modify to my advantage and get healthier. I have to work around asthma which is well controlled along with diabetes which I could always improve on and I am hypertensive. Whew that is a lot but my faith in Christ keeps me going and pushing forward. I still have my mini trampoline that use on occasion need more use. I found a. Stationary bike at our local thrift shop for 30 dollars. I tore my old stationary bike up from use. I still have my treadmill and I have a love hate relationship with it. I will use YouTube for aerobic exercising along with any activity I can find that fits my special case. As a newly single mom things can get challenging. I AM A RECOVERING EMOTIONAL EATER AND I AM WORKING ON IT BY FAITH EVERY DAY.. I CAN NOT WAIT UNTIL I REACH MY GOAL WEIGHT THIS YEAR. I AM A WOMAN OF FAITH AND I WILL USE IT IN EVERY SITUATION OF MY LIFE. I have brought a JOURNAL TO FIT MY PERSONAL CASE TO TRACK MY HEALTH HABITS, FOOD AND EXERCISE AND TO TRACK MY EMOTIONAL EATING WHEN IT HAPPENS. I WILL ALSO STUDY GODS WORD FOR STRENGTH, DAILY STUDYING, AND DAILY AFFIRMATIONS TO BEAT BACK THE VOICES OF NO AND YOU CAN NOT! LIES! I WILL AND I CAN DO ALL THINGS THUR CHRIST WHO IS MY STRENGTH


DISTRACTION LIST TO GUARD AGAINST EMOTIONAL EATING


1. Distance myself from the desired food. Go outside etc. Go window shopping at my fav thrift store.

2. Chewing gum or drink green tea. Drink low cal or no cal beverage like green teas, club soda, water with fruit slices. you would be surprised how a few fruit slices changes the tastes of water. I incorporated a new habit for bedtime. I saw that certain food cravings could mean vitamin deficiencies so I try and take vitamins daily especially the cold and flu months.


3. deep breathing, Cleaning out closets or my bed room dresser drawer or re-organize it.Go thur my craft boxes and organize and clean it out. I have found out that I soon forget about eating afterwards.

4. Pray believing God will take me thur this time of testing or trial. Develop and use victory verses of the bible over temptation. devotions. Stinking thinking can get you into trouble. I refuse!

5. Cleaning/scrubbing floors, tub etc.

6. Do self care like napping, facials, use tea bags or cucumber sliced on eyes. Yes tea bags and cucumber slices are great on puffy and tired eyes. They feel cool and refreshing. Pedicures or manicures ARE A MUST FOR ME NOW. .


7. Do crocheted projects. Keeping my hands busy really helps and I love crocheting anyway. I have made several crocheted projects including jewelry. I have also made jewelry from beading and wire works. I like having pieces that I have made with my own hands . I have begun a fitness journal to aid me managing my health and weight loss. It has revealed a lot about myself. I know where I need to pick things up in areas of my life. One I need to make me a priority and I will do just that. Recently I have allowed myself to go back to bed after my son leaves for his day support center activities. I get much needed sleep and rest. Do I feel guilty? Nope I work hard to manage the both of us. I recently started making refurbished journals for stress relief. I found it to be relaxing. I love making things with my hands. This craft is a new one for me. I love trying new crafts.

8. Go shopping--window shop for inexpensive items or Leave the room.

9 DEEP BREATHING. I recently did this with my ys who is special needs and it does relax you. I even got sleepy afterwards.


MY SKILLS FOR COMBATING STRESS.


1. AS A MOM OF A SPECIAL NEEDS ADULT OF WHICH IS ONE OF THE JEWELS OF MY EYES) I NEED DOWN TIME. TO COLLECT MYSELF BEFORE PUTTING A SPOON TO MY MOUTH. REMOVING MYSELF FROM THE STRESSFUL SITUATION IF POSSIBLE.

2. PRAYER AND QUOTING SCRIPTURE TO THE SITUATION. LIFE AND DEATH IS IN THE POWER OF THE TONGUE.

3. IF TIRED TAKE A POWER NAP..

5. FOR AN EXTREMELY STRESSFUL DAY stretches and YOGA HELPS OUT. PATIO BREAKS WHEN ABLE AND WEATHER PERMITING.

6. REMEMBER AND REMIND MYSELF THAT FOOD IS NOT THE ANSWER. GOD IS!!

I am free to do and be me. My youngest son is still dealing with the recent divorce and is getting helps. I do not live in negativity any longer. I am free from a dead situation and I am better for it. I am stronger wiser for it. God is still my provider and source of strength. He is my all and all. I can't stop giving thanks to God. He is still writing my story..........😊🙏🙏🙏💃💃🏃🏃🙌👐

    Thank you for commenting on my blog.

    Bless you, it is so hard to be a caregiver at times.

    I also have respect for the covid I was s so careful and rarely out of the house being in the high risk group have to be real careful and take it seriously. I pray that you and your son remain covid free.

    It is a good idea for you to do online grocery shopping nd have it delivered to avoid the exposure even further.

    I have no idea what is wrong with the anti-masker people, they sure don't seem to care at all. I have had people with that attitude when I have been at the pharmacy.

    Thank you for the get well soon wishes. I am pain free and feeling a bit better each day.

    I should have worn a mask when going over to my parents house to check in and take care of my dad knowing that my mom is always out and about.

    Thanks for the comment on my photo. That was a trip to Brazil to enable my husband to visit her mom when terminally ill. I took TWO sons with me to help with my husband (who had serious addiction problems) and I got to see Brazil!!
