Day 54: 100 days challenge - Eating to Feel Better

Well, things have finally settled down from Holy Week and the bathroom remodel. I went way off track. This is one of the things I really need to work on. I have a tendency to start stuffing my face when I feel like my world is spinning out of control. I got up this morning and did 23 minutes on the treadmill. I argued with myself for about 20 minutes before actually getting on.

Today's topic is "Eating to Feel Better."
I think we can all identify with this one. I can remember as a child, when my mom was so sick, how I often ate because I couldn't control anything else. After my mother died, I ate to keep from having to face my grief. I can remember stuffing my face with donuts the day my dad died. I didn't even notice I was doing it until my cousin touched my arm and I became aware of what I was doing. We do it because it works. It temporarily suspends our thinking and keeps us from having to deal with life.

  1. Falling off is not a fatal problem- failing to get back on track is. Congratulations to getting back on, and here's to a brief restful pause until First Communion/Confirmation/Pentecost rolls in !
