Funny how stress works..

a small to moderate amount finds me wanting to indulge in emotional eating. A large amount? No appetite at all. Hit the latter today..DH and 200 plus others have been laid off..suddenly not hungry at all.


Funny how differently I view walking..

now that I can do it outside, vs the treadmill I use in winter! What a pleasure to walk 2 or three fast miles when surrounded by fresh air, mountains, and sparkling river. I had purely forgotten what a terrific way it is to begin the day!

walking the tight rope of maintenance..

Thursday, June 11, 2009

finally back in the groove after a difficult April and May that saw me gaining a few lbs. and indulging in some emotional eating. finally able to exercise and have been going to the gym four or five days a week, walking three times a week, and going to yoga once or twice weekly. Feeling much better, weight is coming off, energy is on the rise.
I love garden season and am outside whenever it isn't pouring rain working on my flowers and veggies and hiking etc. I feel so much more upbeat..that's SAD for ya!


Struggle time..

This week marks the deaths of my Mom and MIL 7 years ago, who died five days apart. It also brought us the death this year of BILfrom cancer..on the anniversary of MIL's death. It found me in the ER in severe respritory distress, with a houseful of much loved and long awaited company at home..I'm thrilled that I enjoyed two days with them before I crashed, so disappointed not to have been able to participate more during their stay. Now on steroids, feeling wonky and wondering how anyone can want to take those things on purpose? OMG. However, I can it's a tradeoff. Both exercise and diet are thrust to the background as our family copes with our latest round of nonsense. At least I know how to exercise again when the Dr. says I can..and it's become a habit I miss when I can't do it during times like this. And I know how to eat healthy, so little damage will be done during these weeks of recuperation. Even DH (reluctantly our cook until I am better) knows about fruit and veggies these that's victory!
