Week 005 – Day 024
I continue to be sore… which is a good thing! I realize my muscles are now back to work. I walked much farther yesterday than before. Today, I have Church all day, starting at 6AM this morning with a meeting, then another meeting before the hour we take the Sacrament. At that point we spend three hours engulfed in learning of our Savior, and how we may do the work He set precedent upon. Yesterday evening my wife was cooking her dinner. She has been very kind in doing her best to keep the amazing aromas of her cooking from me. Alas, I was very in tune with my want of food, and my lack of being able to have it at this time…. in so much that I greatly smelled what she was doing. It smelled wonderful, as all her cooking does. I must admit that knowing I could not have any placed me in a bit of a challenged mood. You see… I don’t eat out of emotion, but instead because I really enjoy the food itself. This is something we have yet to cover in our class. We have so far learned of emotional eating…. and I can see it helping many of our group… just not me, in my enjoyment of food. I attempted to tell this to the class last Thursday, and it came out wrong with me stating I am a celebratory eater, eating when I have achieved something. This of course places me as an emotional eater. This is not what I meant. I enjoy the foods I eat. I savor the flavor, and textures of them…. somewhat like a judge would do, but on an unconscious level. As I was explaining this to my wife yesterday, I am wondering what I can do to not enjoy food. I feel like my life must have things of enjoyment, and this is one of the biggest, right behind God and my Family. It is something shared with all that we may do together. I find it important. This is my challenge.
