Remember when I longed to stay put for a while? (click here) Well, right now as I type this I am on a plane bound for Sacramento. *Sigh* I will drive back to Utah in a vehicle we purchased from our son. (We sold our one and only car as a mechanic's special, and we've been using a pickup borrowed from our sister-in-law.)
Sometimes life just doesn’t go exactly as planned, and it really messes with my eating routines. I find myself living in an “after things settle down” mode. I will get back into my routines “when things settle down.” I will pay attention to hunger and fullness “after things settle down.” My exercise will be consistent again, “when my life gets back in order.”
It amazes me. Haven't I already learned that lesson over and over and over... that life never settles down? I have a little sign on my computer that reads:
Write While Under Fire
It's supposed to remind me that I need to make writing a priority, even when things are crazy. (I struggle with that!!) I need to apply that to eating healthy too. It needs to be a priority no matter what.
After things settle down. Yah, right. Be gone stupid phrase! It ain't gonna happen! Replace that mode of thinking with:
Eat Healthy and Exercise While Under Fire
