I joined on the 1st of February. There is so much on this site! I've not done well with my food intake today but that's okay. Tomorrow is another day and I'll just keep tracking my intake and look for ways to improve my choices. I find that stress sends me straight to the fridge as does anger, fear, worry, sadness - I hardly ever find myself eating just because I'm hungry and that really needs to stop.
I'm hoping that I will find tips to deal with my stress in a far more constructive manner. I know that exercise will help me - walking always relaxed me in the past - but it's still so darn cold in Connecticut and so I'm stuck inside. I own a Nordic Track Cross Country Ski machine as well as a treadmill (not automatic). They are both serving as coat racks at the moment. I need to change that.
It's so sad - I know what to do but just have such a difficult time starting. There are some issues here at home that are difficult to deal with and I am sometimes frozen in place, hiding like a turtle in my shell, hoping no one sees me.
I know I need to kick myself in the butt and get moving. This is my week to prove to myself that I can make a start, no matter how small. The Grand Canyon wasn't carved out in a day. It's beauty developed slowly over time. Well, this is my time
to begin and, with your help, I'll get there.
