I had a rough few days at the weekend and felt really low. I found myself eating loads of junk food and feeling even worse! I was particularly annoyed with myself because in the last 5 months I've managed to break my comfort eating habit. So this seemed like real failure. However, I realised that what I was doing was stuffing my feelings - which actually achieved nothing.
On Monday I decided I wasn't going to give in to this whole comfort eating thing and was going to lean fully on God and allow him to walk me through the pain, rather than use food to anesthetise it. I'm now monitoring myself and am back on track and eating more heathily again.
Our bodies are our temples so they need looking after and feeding with the right fuel. The odd treat is fine, but when junk takes over your life - it's time to dejunk!
