A new season
There is something about this time of year. It feels like it is a time for new beginnings. A time to close doors to things that are no longer working for me and my family. One of the things that is no longer working for us is our eating and lack of exercise. I am not teaching my kids healthy eating habits the way I tend to eat for comfort. I read an interesting thing tonight. It said that if a person feels empty inside they will usually turn to food, alcohol or drugs(some kind of addictive behavior) to forget about how empty they feel. It is hard to be real and admit that I do feel empty inside at times. I need to find healthy habits to replace the unhealthy habits. So, starting right now I am going to try to pay attention to the mindless eating I do. We are also going to add exercise to our daily routine. It will be good for all of us!
