Never realized i was an emotional eater til yesterday. when i'm stressed, i eat! i know i eat when i'm bored, it's something i'm mindful of and can usually spot before it gets out of control. but i never realized stress caused me to eat. when i'm depressed or feeling down i don't eat, so i figured i was in the clear. i'm glad i figured this out cause life is about to get more stressful and i need to find ways to divert the urge to eat. walks are my biggest diversion. anyone have any other ideas to curb this eating habit?

I've lost a pound since i started this. not a great result, but better than gaining! i know the number would be higher if i was eating properly and working out more. i'll get there! i have been walking more. yea! as for food, well i just can't afford to eat real healthy right now. so i'm going to concentrate on eating as healthy as i can. concentrate on more fruit and veggies. i'm buying a house in a couple months, so money is for that more than anything else.
with that in mind, i've decided to concentrate on working out. it's free. and i have an hour a day i can spend on it. though using that hour may take some great willpower!
also! this morning on put on a pair of freshly laundered jeans after my shower and they were loose! yea! usually it takes about a half hour to get them away from that horrible dryer shrinking feeling.

i realize i am very impatient where this whole losing weight and working out thing is concerned. i used to eat fairly well and work out on a regular basis. then i stopped. it didn't happen overnight. but for some reason i expect all the weight i've gained to fall off overnight. and i expect to be able to run a mile without stopping like i used to.
i went for a run this evening. i knew i wasn't going to make it far, but i had goal. i didn't make it. i pushed myself and got to the point where i thought i wasn't getting enough oxygen, so i walked. i know i have to do a little each day and gradually add more, but i want to be able to do it now! i used to be able to.
it saddens me that i let myself become this way. i don't even know who i am. i don't want to be this person anymore. i just get so frustrated because i want to change it now, and quickly. but i can't.

i was highly successful in my workout goal. i worked out saturday and sunday morning. i'm very proud of myself for that. i also took my dog for a walk both days. i didn't get much over 8 hours of sleep either night. on saturday morning i woke up at exactly the time i told myself i needed to, and then fell back to sleep for about 20 minutes. same thing sunday. i ate horribly, but i recorded everything. so yea! though i have learned that sparktime is different from my time. i was updating my foods last night and it kept recording for monday. i think i got it all straightened out.
now my next problem: alcohol. i drank a lot this weekend. i bought miller chill saturday night cause of the whole 100 calorie thing. then last night i drank lot. of a lot of stuff. lol! i'm the type of person that once i start drinking i don't really like to stop. i just keep on having a good time. til the next morning! i also tend to lose track. so it's tough to record calories when you've forgotten how much you drank.
a lot of my weight gain has to do with the amount i drink. i get bored so i'll have a couple beers. or i drink out of habit. like right now, it's nice out, so i like to sit on the deck with a cold beer. i need to change those habits.
i'm planning on going grocery shopping this weekend after payday. then i'll really be able to get into the eating plan. at that point i will quit drinking til at least the 4th of july. from what i've written above you may think this will be a tough task. it will at times, but i've done it before so i know i can do it again! it will just take some willpower.
