    God Has Shown Up Once Again

    God has always amazed me as to how He works, how He communicates with me. I've really been in turmoil over being addicted to Dr. Pepper addiction. During my weekly EMDR session, I shared again that I was frustrated with drinking Dr. Pepper but we didn't directly address this in our session as we addressed just a seething type anger that seems to be coming out passive aggressively.

    The Women's Bible study I'm in where we have been studying about being an Intentional Woman God's way has been so enlightening and since I began last Aug'16, I have been changing and as a result, my marriage has been transforming into something better and better and parenting has gotten better, too.

    It has been truly wonderful, but a lot of work. So the next thing God reveals to me in EMDR is that He wants me to have a quiet and gentle spirit. That is not something right now I can use to describe me as I have a lot of conversations silently in my head. But those conversations often rile me up as they have sort of an Entitlement attitude.

    So now I am, in between EMDR sessions, aggressively tackling this nasty entitlement attitude through prayer, soaking prayer, Bible study, and EFT. Since that EMDR session, I've not wanted to have any Dr. Pepper. Prior to this, at least the past few months, it's mainly been willpower and an obsession with wanting Dr. Pepper.

    God has been so patient with me. When I begin to be impatient with my husband and kids, I am reminded gently by God of how patient He's been to me.

    EFT & Prayer for Dr. Pepper Addiction

    So I'm randomly doing EFT for this addiction and also praying, asking God to reveal to me the roots of this Dr. Pepper addiction. Not sure if He has, but I did pray on my attitude yesterday.

    This morning I did EFT alternating statements on "Water is good. Dr. Pepper is bad." I'm grasping at straws. Repented for my attitude and asked God for healing for my sinful, rotten attitudes.

    Today I have my women's Bible study and they are free sodas and water. Last week I got water. I pray I get water again today. Been tapping on how good clean drinking water is, how it's refreshing, satisfying.

    Had a Dr. Pepper Saturday afternoon, so I did make it almost 7 days without Dr. Pepper. Then Sunday evening when picking up my son from a chess tournament, I got a Dr. Pepper. Was so disappointed in myself.

    However, Monday was a new day and I was successful at not drinking this drink and resorting to water instead. Today is also another new day and so far at 7:51 am, I'm good.

    DR PEPPER ADDICTION

    I am beginning to think my love of Dr. Pepper is actually something demonic. I'm obsessing over it and I don't really know why. Asking God to reveal to me why I love drinking this drink so much.

    It's not good for me, yet I want it. It's this and Pringles that I have issues with. It's easier to not buy Pringles than it is to NOT buy Dr. Pepper. There are convenience stores, fast food drive thru's where you can easily get Dr. Peppers.

    I know my body will be so much better without this drink that is full of empty calories. It's not about logic here, rather the emotions. I don't feel like I have anxiety. My life is good and I'm not worried.

    Or, is it because I'm content and happy that I want Dr. Pepper? In the past, it was when I was low energy and not getting enough sleep or that I was stressed. I'm not any of those now, but I still want this stuff.

    It's aggravating. I've been doing EFT on this and even had some acupuncture on this. Addiction still there. I feel like a prisoner to this addiction.

    Sigh.

    INTENSE WORKOUTS

    I need to get back into a good routine on these. I'm good with the restorative work, but I need to add some intensity to things. Feeling lazy and out of sync here. Just gotta get back into sync.

    VITAMINS & SUPPLEMENTS

    I'm starting to get back on track with these again. I still need to buy a good multi-vitamin, which I normally had been buying from a friend of mine who gets them at a discount and I probably need to get the probiotic, too. So many things to take.

    At the Dollar Tree, I got four 7-day pill box holder which are the big pill box since I have so many things to take. The collagen is 6 large pills. I don't have the multi-vitamin, which is also 6 large pills. That takes up a lot of room as well as the Ca-Mg-Z-D3 pills are large, but I think I only take 1 or 2 of those. The rest are small pills.

    I have a month's worth put in the pill boxes, so that's good. I'll see how my body responds over the next 3 months and if it continues to want me to take these things or delete some or take other stuff.

    What am I taking?


    • My heart meds

    • Biotin

    • Krill Oil

    • Vitamin E

    • B-12

    • Ca-Mg-Z-D3

    • Collagen

    • Potassium with Iodine

    • CoQ10


    Seems like a lot. But, there was a time I took even more.

    EATING LATER IN THE EVENING

    I found that my body doesn't really like when I eat late and by late, I mean after 7 pm. My fasting blood sugar fairs much better when I just eat dinner around 6 pm and no snacking after 7 pm. Yesterday I had enough for dinner and stopped.

    Don't like eating until I am full and rarely at home or with my husband and kids do I eat until I'm full. It seems the only time I do that is when I'm at a social or out to dinner with my extended family.

    It's like those people - the social me and the immediate family me or me me are completely opposite eaters.

    I'm trying to analyze this and I think it has to do with not having enough. Like I need to get all I can now or there won't be anymore left if I want any. Whereas, at home or even when I eat out with my husband and kids, maybe the subconscious mindset is there is plenty and no need to stuff yourself.

    Maybe I need to do some EFT on this because social eating is something I dread because I just always totally pig out. I really, really hate that I do that. Some people are secret eaters. I am the complete opposite when it comes to social eating.

    I will conquer this, get to the root cause and eliminate it. My mom said once a week eating out with her and the family isn't a big problem and isn't too bad. The year my stepdad died (her husband), we did exactly that and I gained 25 lbs just from those weekly dinners with my extended family.

    If I can get control of not pigging out and just eating like I normally do, then it won't be a problem. The thing is, my husband and kids also pig out, so it's all of us doing it where we don't do that at home.

    Come to think of it, when I was growing up, there were 5 of us kids and everyone grabbed what they wanted as much and if you didn't get your share, too bad, so you had to get it all. Maybe that's the root cause. I don't know.

    Allergies to EFT

    Currently I'm being treated to allergies to EFT. My acupuncturist tried to explain, sort of, how I could be allergic to this. I told him it did work for many things over the past 16 yrs I've been doing this. His only explanation is that I might have overdone this, which makes no sense to me.

    Hopefully I will clear this allergy. I'll test for this, but not sure if I do the testing correctly. I have another NAET treatment on Monday and then I'm taking a break for awhile.

    A part of living healthier is not just in one's food choices, one's sleep, how you handle stress, exercise & movement, but a more basic thing is to ask is your body functioning in such a manner that all the good you do for it, is it effective?

    Learning that I was diabetic and learning that going low carb actually made the diabetes worse was such an eye-opener.

    Anyway, we should question whether what we are doing that we think is healthy actually is healthy for us or not. We can assess this by getting blood tests for a number of things, but also how our physical body is responding.

    For example, if you're eating "healthy" and you're in the process of releasing weight, is your body actually releasing weight or are you bloated, not releasing weight (bodyfat). If you're weightlifting and progressively increasing the weights, are you actually getting stronger?

    For me, I have weightlifted, done cardio, restorative, agility, all sorts of things for years. I've also reduced my food intake. Increased my sleep and now get regular good sleep. Reduced stress and manage it better. I eat usually whole, single ingredient foods with as little processing as possible 80% of the time.

    Yet, my hair is thinning and has my whole adult life. And, it started thinning even more as I went low carb. My eyebrows are thinned on the edges, yet all my blood labs show my thyroid is fine.

    I noticed last year as i progressively increased my weights in a 12-week program that I was losing strength, not gaining strength. Though I did release some bodyfat/weight and size, for what I was doing, I should have gotten better results.

    There were other things like when I get a cough after being sick, it's very hard to get rid of the cough and it lingers for days, weeks, and even in some cases, many months. Though I now do more restorative work, my body takes longer to recover and I don't always feel great, especially the "healthier" I ate.

    I took notice of these things and told my regular family doctor and he just dismissed these as getting old or things he couldn't explain. But, now with NAET, this pretty much explains many of the "odd" things I have experienced over the years and I'm going through to clear these allergies that I never knew I had, which basically means reprogramming my body.

    This is really 30 yrs of some of these allergies that my body will not be healing over time. I must keep doing those good things, but now they will count much better and be more effective. It will still take many weeks, months to get rid of this excess bodyfat that I've tried and work so hard over the past 30+ yrs to get rid of.
