Struggling...

My MoJo has deserted me, have got a fridge full of healthy food but I am craving crap.
I have got to get focussed otherwise I am going to fall into a ravine of carbs, cake, chocolate, cookies.

April 1st sounds a good day to stop acting the fool, I am hoping this cough and cold will have started to leave me by then and I can get motivated into a better frame of mind. Thaty sounds wrong, I am very happy, I have had a wonderful time since Emily recovered. I have had a great birthday celebration that is still continuing, cards and gifts are still arriving. So it is not a better frame of mind I need, it is a refreshed attitude.  It has been so easy to slip into bad habits.

Will Power has been on holiday and must come home soon.

Oh, Sheilagh, you just have the carb cruds from so much justifiable and well-earned celebrating.

After Easter, I'd advise you to take a week and cut out all carbs other than fruit, veggies & healthy dairy. The cravings will disappear and healthy food will start to look good again. It will. Deb

I find when i eat some junk it just makes me crave more!! But i know you'll be fine once it's out of your system :)

I'm with these ladies!!! The more you have it, the more you want. The overload of crap, as you called it, has to work it's way out of your system and you'll stop craving it! STOP!!!! :) Because we adore you. xxxxxx

I agree with the others - if I eat crap, I want more crap. They design crap food to work that way. Hope you find your mojo. Maybe it's in those strawberries. Mmmmm.

I agree with the others...
actually there was just a study out about how the brain reacts to junk food in the same way an addicts brain reacts to heroin.
junk food=heroin.
don't forget.

wow...junk food = heroin...I love the way Chris puts things so bluntly!! lol. She rocks.

You are going to be just fine. I'm struggling HARD this week too due to being out of sync all last week w/ a little medical condition. Hard to get things going in the right direction. I've got that carb crap going on, too. You just have to STOP eating them...and the cravings will STOP. I promise you. Dig into the healthy food in the frig. I finally did today. I had some baked chicken tenders for dinner with grilled asparagus, roasted radishes, and sauteed mushrooms/zucchini for dinner. And 2 big ol' 32 oz glasses of water!!! Today was also the first HARD workout I've had at the gym in a week. Oh I didn't want to do it, lol, but I did. It just takes that ONE good day of food and exercise to get back on track. The next day is always easier. You can do it girl...I have faith in you! :)

Maybe it's time to set another goal? You were pretty focused on the sixty by sixty and it is proably easy to let things slide when you know you have now passed the age portion of that equation. I said it once already, you are sixty for this whole year... you could reframe the original goal to help you reach it by a new certain time.

Junk food = heroin. That is so powerful. If anything can make you eat healthy that can. Yes darlin April 1st is a good day to start. I am with you. I think you now have less to lose than me so I am going to need your encouragement too. You have done it before and you can do it again.

How about if we say we both need to be at target for November retreat. It looks like a long way away but you know how time flies.

Just remember how good it felt. Love you loads xxxx

Sheilagh,

You're going to be fine and good. Look at how far you've traveled! Mentally and physically---You're a changed person my friend. Don't be fearful of this temporary instability, because if you fear it, you're giving it power over you. Instead, show it who's in charge! You are! This is your journey, this is your life, and you are in control---perhaps better than ever!
You have displayed so much strength along this road---flex your muscles on this instability and move forward with a smile. It's all a part of the process.

You're doing so well my friend and it is truly wonderful to witness,

my best always
Sean

Open the fridge, look Will Power in the eye, for that surely is where it lurks, and tell him you've got him by the throat. Eat well and then offer yourself a reward. One glass of champers a week for being such a FAB 60!
