#Mamavation Monday - Too pooped to party

Hi ladies! I hope that you all had a wonderful mother’s day!

This past week was great. I learned a lot about myself, my cravings and how to control them. All was well up until Saturday when my DH took me out to eat at Red Lobster for our anniversary dinner. I went berserk! I had the shrimp festival with a few cheddar biscuits. One day I will learn. Just because my stomach feels okay, it doesn’t mean I can feed greasy junk into it. I paid for it yesterday. I spent most of the morning in the bathroom, and the rest of the day in the bed or recliner. So needless to say, there wasnt much celebration yesterday on Mother's day! I was pooped!

Regardless of my wild weekend, I still managed to lose .6 lbs this week! I consider that to be epic. Lol

(Once again, I have no idea why that picture shows correctly, then flips once I upload it here!)

As I wrote in my post last week, I have been studying the Made to Crave book with Rachel S. This week I want to share a passage from the book that struck me hard today...

“I had to get honest enough to admit it: I relied on food more than I relied on God. I craved food more than I craved God. Food was my comfort. Food was my reward. Food was my joy. Food was what I turned to in times of stress, sadness and even times of happiness.”

Have a great week girls! I am still around, just busy! So when if you think I am not looking I am! :)

Sending you big hugs & prayers for healing! It's a learning process. Not only learning what your body does and does not need, but also learning more about what God wants for you. Hang in there!

Congrats on your loss this week! I'm glad that book is helping you reflect on your relationship with food and your relationship with God. Best of luck to you this week.

Good for you for losing those pounds!
I still have a lot of cravings. Choco Lava, Bacon in breakfast and a lot more. I don't know how I'm going to go through all these cravings. Hopefully, I could just get through just fine.
