Food rut

So the title of this post says it all, I'm in a big time food rut! I just have lost the desire for the foods I was once enjoying. I don't like when I get like this. I just need to try some new things and some new recipes.

I'm going to check out some blogs for some new recipes or healthy snacks for this week.

I finally let go of those negative feelings that came along with the family drama that was going on...thank God! I realize that emotions and stress will always be part of life. I have to remember to give myself credit for how far I have come.

One thing I notice has changed about me is, I now have a voice. I might let things stress me and will emotionally eat at times, but once I figure it out I'm able to speak up about my feelings. That used to be impossible for me. I would just take all the negativity out on myself.

I know i'm not where I want to be just yet, but thank God I'm not where I used to be!

At a standstill

It's been a while since I've blogged. I just haven't had the motivation to be honest. I really was in a groove for a while with eating well and I even started to loose some weight.

It was all good until I had a family argument and then I started emotionally eating again...big time! I haven't been on a roll like this in quite sometime...sad to say. I'm no longer taking my feelings out on myself. This week I'm fighting to only eat when I'm truly hungry. It sounds easy, but not for an emotional eater.

I don't want to be a downer, but at times I wonder if I will ever break this bad habit? I know that I will, but sometimes my head wants to tell me I won't. I'm a fighter, and I'm not giving up.

Here are some photos of my summer thus has been a great one!
