HA!!! Little did I know what each pregnancy, each child, would do to me physically, mentally, and especially emotionally. When you are an emotional eater such as I, that pretty much is all I have done is eat to make up for the emotional stress that has come from 4 boys! Not to mention the whole "cancer journey" and grief added on a TON of weight as well.
Not sure where my little sister got her genes from, but she doesn't eat when she is distraught. She works out and keeps herself busy, therefore burning more calories. So jealous of that! I get depressed and find some chocolate of any kind, but preferably BLUE BIRD Chocolates that are handmade here in our little Cache Valley. Somehow, nibbling on those oober-rich, soft, sweet morsels and letting each bite melt between my tongue and the roof of my mouth, actually melts away my sorrows. It is quite an experience. Too bad it has such horrible side effects... such as an expanding waistline... I haven't seen mine in quite a few years... sigh.
So back to my main thought... Oh look , something shiny!!... Oh yeah, I was going somewhere with this. Ummm... Oh right! I WENT TO THE GYM TODAY! I also took a nice walk with John yesterday. So hopefully this is my start (again)to getting my life back.
Here is my new motto: "I am either going to die young or kill myself trying not to!"
It's all in the fight! So here we go. Jane Fonda... eat your heart out!!
