Learning During the Process

Yesterday I learned something about myself.....should have already known....but I eat for comfort and out of frustration. I was doing great yesterday but by 7:30 the kids had worn down my nerves and I headed to the ice cream cake for comfort! I really think writing it down will help!!

Many people have commented on how neat they thought the brown pages were. Actually I am using a photo album that my friend picked up at Aaron Brothers for 1.98 on their clearance table!! I'll post a picture of what I did to the cover in today's post. Also I included a look at how I am doing my journaling. At the end of the day I take notes and post feelings in the memo section next to my meal recap.









Once again the art is totally inspired by Rhonna! I admire you even more today than I did yesterday...I started trying to play with Photoshop last night and holy cow digital is hard!!




On a homefront note, Kade and I went rollerblading at 6am before he left for school and Keira just told me I must have got out of the grumpy bed this morning since I told her "no she cannot play Calliou on the computer until mommy is done blogging!"

Have a great day!!

Simply beautiful! Isn't cool how if we stop to think about WHY we are eating something, we realize we don't really need it! Oh, but it tastes so good!
