Mental~ Emotional ~ Cognitive Health and our Physical Health

Zig Ziglar




How do you keep yourself emotionally, mentally and cognitively engaged?
For me, this was HUGE to my physical transformation. I learned that whenever I felt down, verbally attacked, bad about myself I searched for food to comfort me. As a matter of fact it happened yesterday! Hubby and I got into a disagreement and all goals flew out of my head and wanted FAST FOOD FAST! But, knowing that about myself, I stayed strong...I redirected my uncomfortable feelings by crossing things off my to do list! I got engaged in progress and I felt better. By late last night when I saw hubby I had completely forgotten about our "tiff" and I hadn't gone down a path to lead me to more negative feelings! 
I don't always have success like that, but the key is to learn about ourselves so we CAN see progress in changing those mental and emotional obstacles.

Hi Jen! This might seem funny but I have been reading your blogs over the past few days as if they were on top of the New York Best Seller's list. I can't believe I didn't start before (really wish I had) it might have saved me and more importantly Amy a lot of unnecessary heartache. Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for putting it all out there and being all about the truth. I admire your spirit and your heart. I'm a ways behind you on your journey and maybe even on a different path but I'm following your lead. Thanks again Jen, I sincerely appreciate you! John Woodall
