Food

Monday, September 12, 2016


So I've been working on my head a few months and now its time to start working in my food. I meal planned and precooked a bunch of meals today, went to the grocery store and came home. I'm pretty sure I have sleep apnea, I wake up a lot with adreneline rushes and stuff... probably from not breathing right. I've been sleeping on my side and stomach more which helps, but I dont get good sleep and i think it reallu weara on me. After day 1 of food changes I am totally wiped out. Emotionally I am so stressed out about my son. He is really having a hard time adjusting to first grade and i get emails home almost daily. I'm meeting with the advisors and principal tomorrow for the 3rd time this year (already, its been only a month since school started). I sent an email asking about expulsion and what it would take for him to be removed from school, because I'm worried it's going to come to that. I havent been a perfect mom, but I have tried so hard with him. I dont know what to do. We'll see what they have to say tomorrow. I'm hoping to hear that they arent wanting to remove him from school. I keep thinking back to when he was a little baby and how I never imagined myself where we are today... I did well with food. I have a hard time not going back for seconds. Its a habit. I dont think I'm actually hungry, I just like the taste or have a compulsion I cant help. I'm going to get in bed early tonight and see if a few extra hours of sleep help me feel more awake tomorrow.

    Mother's never stop worrying about their children. Mine are grown, married and with children of their own and I still worry. Greensapphire's suggestions were good. Sleeping more lowers hunger hormone. I hope you were able to get more zzzz. You are doing a good job.

    The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.

    I am sorry to hear your son is having a hard time adjusting. I am a mother of all sons. They are all grown now, but I remember the hard times when they were younger. I will say a prayer for you and your son. Take one day at a time. Blessings!

    Hope you feel better. Ask your son's teacher what you could do at home to help him along with what you can do at school to help as well. Together, you and the teacher could help him turn his year around. Well wishes and prayers.✨💃✨💫
