Day 25 – 1% Change {90-Day Challenge} Peaceful Mind


Life is a series of steps. Things are done gradually. Once in a while there is a giant step, but most of the time we are taking small, seemingly insignificant steps on the stairway of life.

Day 25 -90

Ugh!!  Have a knee injury so I am not working out.  😦

That is a FrOwN-y FaCe because I really like working out.  It really makes me food good in sooo many ways.

But on the BriGhT SiDe, I have been eating well.  🙂

The meals, at the conference I’m at, have been buffet style, so I have been going for fruits, vegetables, and protein.  Because I am coming off of a couple of rough eating days and want to get right back on track, I am staying away from eating a lot of carbs.  That’s okay, because turns out they are Mr. Right-There foods anyway, so I don’t mind passing on them.   If I did have sweets calling my name, I would plan for them (I may have a donut from Dunkin’ Donuts tomorrow in the airport), but SuRpRiSe, SuRpRiSe!! this girl who loves sweets is not desiring them!  That is a testament to giving myself permission to eat whatever I want as long as it gives peace.  This took me a lot of practice, but I am finally starting to nail it.

This CoNcEpT is HuGe.  I really don’t have out-of-control urges for food anymore because I never feel like I have a mental stock-pile of foods that I am craving, or planning to binge on,

I’ve learned that porking out, for the most part, was due to cause and effect – denying myself of the food I loved resulting in spiraling out of control.

MiRaCuLoUsLy, when I began to give myself the foods I desired (in a controlled manner that gave peace) the effect was satisfaction, closure, and peace.

No more food fantasies!  I love it that my mind is not obsessed with thoughts of foods!

Ahhhh, finally a PeAcEfUL MiNd!

Day 23 – 1% Change {90-Day Challenge} Get Understanding


You must take personal responsibility.  You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself.  That is something you have charge of.

Day 23 - 90

Today is a fresh start.  And I have a BriGhT OutLooK.  🙂

I’m at a conference, in Atlanta, where I am becoming a Certified Human Behavior Consultant by one of mentors, Dr. Robert A. Rohm.

One of the things that I have heard Dr. Rohm say over and over is, “AbOvE aLL eLsE, get understanding.”  This training is teaching us how to UndeRsTaNd OuRseLvEs aNd OtHers.  I’m hoping I can use this incredible wisdom and apply it to Peace with Food.

As I think about this statement, “Above all else, get understanding.”, I realize that HeReIn LiEs tHe SeCrEt to Peace with Food – Get Understanding.  Until you understand yourself and your relationship to food, your body, the scale, and your thoughts on this subject, as well as how to Follow Peace, you can never experience Peace with Food.  It really is that simple.

I have come to learn that the more understanding I have, the more peace I have.
