That is what this past few days has been all about. Personal ones, business ones, financial ones, life style journey ones. I know that all of us have them, I know that all of us deal with them in some different ways. Me, I use to handle things a lot better then I do now. Don’t know why but maybe because I can see where some of it leads.
So the way I’ve been handling all of this extra stuff is not the way I should be. Both Monday and Tuesday were not good diet days. I made homemade bread and apple/banana muffins and had no intentions of eating any of it but that didn’t happen and once I had one, I ended up eating three/four. Then the bread came out and I had made homemade butter and well then ended up in my tummy. Yesterday I roasted a chicken and made two huge meals with it along with homemade gravy, stuffing, red potatoes and pudding. Well I didn’t keep my hands out of that either. I’m guessing in the both days I had enough carbs to last the week, plus the calories had to equal out at least 3 days worth. I don’t know, I can be so good for so long and then I screw up. Well it’s a good thing it’s just Wednesday, a new day, to do what I know I should. Today will be a veggie day, low calories, low carbs, low everything and that will go for tomorrow and Friday too. If I’m allowed 8000 calories a week and I’ve used up a huge portion of them, I better not screw up any more. It’s a good thing I joined the gym, at least some of the calories are getting burned off. It doesn’t help either that I started a cold on top of everything. When the stress is high, why do people have to get sick? It’s not like I can handle any more junk. I know the Lord says he won’t give us more then we can handle but I swear he sure does like to push and push at times.
So life challenges, poorly handled but I’m still learning. What have I learned, don’t do any baking when life isn’t cooperating. There are some thing I can work on and some I can’t do a darn thing about. I need to get back into the going with the flow instead of trying to head up stream. I’ll do it, I’ll get my ducks in a row…a straight row.
How are you doing? How’s the Christmas shopping going? How’s the house decorating going? Christmas parties? Tonight I am taking my mama, daddy, nephew and son to see one of Brainerd’s hugest lights displays. I hear it’s even bigger then last years so a perfect way to de-stress, unwind and enjoy the lights, sounds and feelings of Christmas. ‘Tis the season to enjoy, not worry about things. I’ll try really hard.
Take care my friends and have a blessed day today. Only 10 days until our Lords birthday. The real reason for the season. At least in my book.
