Stress Of The Unknown

So, how are you guys all doing? Are you able to stay focused on healthy choices? Have you let yourself fall back into old habits? I know this “safer-at-home” order has done a number on my path to a healthier me.

I have been working from home since the order was issued by our governor, and while I love staying home for work, it also is been incredibly difficult for me not to just sit down with a bag of chips and pig out while I report sales for the company. I am on the struggle bus you guys. I know the good I should do, but still do not do it! Are you the same way? Please, tell me I’m not alone in this.

Not only have I not been feeding my body with good nutrition, I have been fighting sickness. This week I have been a pincushion at the doctor’s office. They are trying desperately to determine what is going on with my body. They are testing me for all kinds of auto-immune diseases, and I hope to have the results soon.

The stress of the unknown has added to my stress eating for sure. It’s a mindless way to just completely veg out for a moment and not obsess over things out of my control. I’m struggling to find a healthy balance between concern and total mayhem. The only thing I know for sure is that God has promised to take care of his children, and my faith is firm that He will. I may be struggling now, but it is for a purpose and everything will work together in the end.

This week’s recipe is a great summer “pasta” salad. It truly is delicious and doesn’t feel like you are eating something healthy. Kids love it, husbands love it, and your cousin Karen will love it! Trust me; this one is a keeper.
