Not the Normal Sunday

Sunday's are the day that I feel so helplessly out of control. I go to my church meetings and then I feel like I eat nonstop the rest of the day. I don't know if it's because Sunday's are more relaxed for me. I spend a lot of time reading on Sunday, but I seem hungry all day.
Today hasn't been like that. I still read for a while but I haven't felt the need to over eat today. I had my 3 meals and 1 snack. I feel full and satisfied. That's just so not normal for me. I like it though.

Goal for this week....Eat meals at my table. I am very much one that sits on the couch in front of the TV to eat all my meals that I am home for. So my goal this week will be to eat at my kitchen table. I'm not sure what to do with lunch at school. I always eat at my desk multi-tasking. I'm the only teacher that has a lunch break when I do, so there is no one to eat with. I'll probably still eat at my desk but try not to do anything else.

A big thank you to those that have given your support. I think this will only work if I know you are out there keeping your eye on me. THANK YOU!


  1. Lately I have noticed times that just eat to eat and wonder why. I am an emotional eater, so I am blaming that. Not my most productive idea...

  2. I know that I am very much an emotional eater. It's something I have to work hard at. I forget sometimes that bored is an emotion.

  3. I had something happen yesterday that seems to be related to all this. My family and I were playing catchphrase (someone has to get their team to guess a word or phrase by describing or acting it out) and my sister was trying to get us to guess the word "relax". What she said was, "When you get stressed, you__" and another sister shouted out, "Eat!" We all laughed because we knew it was so true.
