Struggling to find my voice, Healthy Reflection
Tuesday, February 12, 2008
This reflection couldn't have come at a more perfect time. This is so me. I try to find my voice but it is so hard to get it right. If I'm not passive, I'm too harsh. I can't seem to find a happy medium.
Last night was the harsh voice, I just "got on to everyone", including the pets because I feel like everyone just walks all over me!
Here's a perfect example for when it comes to me losing weight:
My husband and son are steak and potatoes men but I don't have the metabolism they do so I can't eat these things. I find myself making two meals. One for them and one for me. Well it just becomes so much work that I finally cave in and make their meal and just try to eat only the low calorie things. Of course their foods are so tempting and I can't always resist since I'm hungry.
Last night I cooked what I wanted AND made it low calorie, they both turned up their nose but I ate it and am glad I didn't succumb to making them something else this time!
This morning I'm proud of me, except I wish I could not be passive yet at the same time not have to be so harsh to get recognized.
