Mind Full or Mindful?

Mind Full or Mindful?

I try my hardest to be mindful, I even have a mindfulness tattoo on my hand to remind me, the last few days my mind has been so full of crap that I get tension headaches. I hate headaches more than anything … so today I have been practicing mindfulness and my mind has been somewhat calm again. I am a firm believer in meditation and/or deep breathing, it can help so much if we do it regularly, even just 5 minutes a day can help

It Feels Great To Accomplish ….

It Feels Great To Accomplish ….

Something that you set out to do, I rarely have this feeling as I start so many things and never finish them or take years to do so. While my eating problems have been both good and bad, iveĀ  finished a few things that I started long ago. When I was young we instead of having photos we had slides, ive been meaning to scan them onto my PC for three years, it took me two hours to get it done (what was stopping me from doing it years ago?)

Ive been saying I was going to get my learners permit for many years, but I blamed not being able to study for not doing it. I started studying five days ago, I went for the test today and aced it. These things that I failed at beforehand kept going through my mind and I kept telling myself that I never follow through with anything so why bother trying

Now im looking forward to learning to drive and now that im able to walk again I want to get my health in order, my binges are few and far between but exercise helps in keeping me sane,I never realised how much it helped until I wasnt allowed to walk for two months

I have a hangover from my last binge, but im looking forward to the challenge and see if my brain is going to work with me this time with my health .. ive decided to try harder this time

Happy New Year, looking forward to see what I can accomplish in 2015

Its Time

I binged yesterday, when I binge I drink alot of Coca Cola and it doesnt go well with my bipolar meds. Its happened a few times after bingeing but it took me alittle while to put two and two together, I jump up in my sleep, I did it twice last night, one time I nearly knocked myself out by hitting my head and the second time I either scared my little chihuahua or actually hit her, she screamed and that broke my heart

Just Breathe …

Yesterday my mood was very low, I felt ok when I was around my dogs, but when I wasnt, I felt empty inside, I havent felt like that in awhile. I was overtired and after 5 weeks, im fed up with not being able to walk, I still have two weeks to go before I see the surgeon again

So instead of still trying to do so much, im resting, taking time out to “just breathe

Im still going really well with my recovery from bingeing, better than ever before, so that makes me happy, but I need to try look after my mental health since I cant exercise and my obsession with food has lowered, I need to keep my mind busy as boredom is a killer
