Every 3 Hours

*Disclaimer: I follow the Trim Healthy Mama plan for eating, if you are interested in it, please consider purchasing the plan book and cookbooks, for further information!*


How immature was I just now? (This is THM related, I promise!)
I have a Kindle Fire, and this morning it just stopped working. I use it for reading, and all the apps, like getting on FB, Pinterest, searching online, etc.
Well after finding out it wasn’t fixable, I got pissed. Yeah..I’m 35 and acting like my 3 year.
So what did I do?! I ate a few of those orange gummie things, from my husbands stash.
Yeah…really good reaction.
No…….I’m not an emotional eater AT ALL! 

I made an S Helper, with a slice of toast, mayo, and sliced hard boiled eggs, and a GGMS though, because I know I need to eat anyways.

Sheesh…anyways…3 hours later.


But I’m left wondering, and thinking about that whole episode, now that I’ve had actual food to eat.

It’s safe to say that emotions trigger my eating habits, no matter what the emotion is. For awhile, I’ve thought I handled my emotions face on, but I’m beginning to think I haven’t been as face on as I thought.

And as much as I say I don’t want technology running my life, it IS running my life. And my husbands. And it’s begun with the children now too. As much as I’m in love with the un-plugged life, I don’t now how to live that way anymore. I really don’t.

That’s not to say that I couldn’t learn…but it’s a lot of habits to learn, when I’m also changing the eating habits of my entire life.

But maybe the THM way of facing off plan meals, is taking it 3 hours at a time. Maybe…just maybe this THM blends over into other areas of my life as well. The grace, and the freedom to make mistakes, to fix them, to make them again, and fix them again…for as long as it takes to get the hang of living life like I see it in my dreams.
