Confessions of an Emotional Eater

Yes... I am admitting it.. I am an EMOTIONAL EATER!
Some of you might ask what is that really!
Emotional eating is eating for reasons other than hunger instead of the physical symptom of hunger initiating the eating, an emotion triggers the eating!
I never realized how much emotional eating was a part of my life and never thought I was an emotional eater until the twins were born.  It has become so abundantly clear that emotional eating is something I do on a regular basis or try not to do on  a regular basis.  
Being an emotional eater is clearly not what any of us want to be.
I do not want to have a really bad day with the twins and get in the car to put them to sleep and stop at a fast food drive through because I can actually enjoy a few moments of peace because they fell asleep and the food seems to taste so much better because they are quiet and because it was not cooked by me, cleaned up by me, or healthy for me.
I am more than certain I was an emotional eater before the twins were born, but it seems to be that they for the good or bad, have brought the worst out of me and my emotional eating.

Do I know why I emotionally eat?  No, I really do not know at all why I do, and I wonder if that is going to be a huge problem in trying to overcome being an emotional eater, I guess time will tell!  Being free from emotional eating takes time – it can take a LOT of time. For some people their emotional attachment to food is less severe and they can be done with the issue in months. For others, like myself, I have no idea, but it really was not until just recently that I truly realized I was an emotional eater.

So I am going to start blogging about my love/hate relationship with food and my steps to becoming healthier and not allowing food to control any part of my life...
I think I am going to start another blog with my ups and downs and successes to share with you on my journey to being a healthier me!

What is your relationship with food?

Tuesdays Tune- Christmas Songs

Since Christmas is coming up so very quickly I thought I would share a couple Christmas Songs...
First a fellow Canadian Favourite - Sarah McLachlan - Wintersong

Second since my brother in law who is in the Air Force is serving away from his family this Christmas, I thought I would put this up in tribute to all the Soldiers from all around the world who are away from their families at this special time of year.  This one makes me cry every time I listen to the song!

If Edward were Mormon

Anyone who has ever lived in a singles ward, or lived in an area where there are
plenty of singles wards, knows exactly how funny, and mostly true this is.

Paul and Lindsay, this one is for you two!!

Check it out... and have a good laugh!

I must Remember

I must remember that no matter how hard some of my days are with the babies (and some of them really are) I am so blessed to have them in my life and to have Heavenly Father trust me with their sweet little spirits.  They are such a blessing in my life, and I did not know my heart and soul was capable of loving someone as much as I love them.

Though I am not creative enough to come up with the ability to sew these..
Someone thankfully is..


Vacation from life PLEASE

Have you ever beat a toy moose against the wall and felt better for doing it, or even laughed when each time you hit the wall the little squeaker would squeak?  No, well I did yesterday, and lets be honest all this week I could have used the same technique and perhaps felt a little better.

The twins are teething, both have colds and both won't let me leave their line of sight without crying.
I can't go anywhere without total meltdowns it seems, and I feel like I am loosing myself.  Add to all of it, my wonderful time of the month and I am feeling like I am going to loose my mind AGAIN!
Don't get me wrong... I LOVE my babies and they are wonderful and precious and oh so very cute, but when I am wanting nothing more than to sit down and eat breakfast and all I get are two screaming babies because they can't see mom anymore, that LOVE is still there, but somehow gets moved aside to almost be replaced by YOU ARE MAKING ME CRAZY love. 

Most mothers of twins tell me that it gets easier when they are one....others tell me when they are two...
I need someone to tell me when they are 9 months because 4 more months of this, and I might truly be an insane woman by the end of it.

Cute girls shots, and yes I am alive!

I know I have been such a slacker lately with my blog, but I have been super busy with, well life having twins but also with my Scentsy business!  It has been a lot of fun for me getting out in the evenings and socializing with other women and not just babies.  Plus, lets be honest being as busy as I have been is going to make a SUPER nice Christmas bonus.

The snow which came down last night has finally made things feel a little more like Christmas, and so should these little photos!  Charlotte is the first photo, than Ruby!
