Gaining weight and figuring it out...

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

My sister warned me about getting older and gaining weight the moment I let loose. I guess she was right on because ever since the holidays I totally gained 10-12lbs I've never felt so unhealthy besides my last post about heartburn. I mean I got some issues going on....and I am not sure if I knew it or not, or maybe in denial, but I figured out something that I am still trying to come to terms with which is being an Emotional EATER. I also would buy items/junk food and eat them when I get a chance...almost like sneaking junk food . emoticon It was in the back of my head and I kept searching for food and worrying about things during school season/holiday season/work season (this is everyday)/ and when I feel overwhelmed and a bit blue.
Is there any help to conquer the need for food when you are going through a roller coaster?? I'm seeking it now. I can't stand googling about how you can do this or that....ten ways to drop this or that....5 days to get to this or that... and the best "how to lose so much weight in little time"...I'm just not interested in that stuff. I want a more logical way of dealing with this. Common sense perhaps?? Basically, old fashion advice would be fantastic. I'm determined to get back into shape. I'm not intimate with my guy because of my weight gain. I literally haven't groomed myself, shaved my legs, painted my nails, all that usual routine I'd do to look sexy and my best. I stopped doing it in over two months now. I need a starting point. I'll start by throwing away this soda and drinking water. Any advice???

Oh Wow!

Am I in the worst shape I've ever been. I had the most awful acid reflux, heartburn ...whatever you call it... last night. It was painful and I had to vomit because I over ate or something. Every single time I tried to burp or burped on my own...food was coming back up. I feel so heavy ... and when I run I jiggle.. its gross. I hate this feeling. I lost track of myself yet again. I went back to school and I totally neglected my healthy eating and exercising.Anyways, I don't mean to sound like a whiny angry biatch. So I'm just going to have to prioritize my time, my life, and my family. I have to focus and keep on task. I had this odd thought that I could participate in the Race for Rescues here in LA or Orange County. I think I find it odd that I'm just out of shape and need to find motivation, yet I want to do it so bad for the dogs and cats to make another year. I want to help them. If I exercise I'll be on track...through my mind.. clarity.
I also fell into a deep depression, it actually comes and goes whenever I reevaluate my situation. My situation is that I want to move out of my parent's home for once. In order to do that I need more money and in order to make more money I need a raise OR I need a new job. In order to get a new job or a raise I need to update my background and complete my degree. Its a cycle that I enjoy yet there are stumbling blocks. Now I'm craving pizza. fun.

  Raise your head with an extra pillow to help with the reflux problem. Try Pepto Bismal . These work for me.

already August??

Thursday, August 02, 2012

oh wow... its now August ...what have I done in the last month and half? Absolutely nothing!! I fell off the wagon once again. I am not eating well ....as a matter of fact not eating much fruit or veggies. I've been stressing out so all I've been living off of is bread for easy sandwiches that have cheese, lettuce, and pickles, I will add veg bologna or black bean burger...I can't stand this. I am so lazy, but I have also been suffering from bouts of depression. I don't know what it is exactly. But I'll have this surge of happiness and motivation to do something and then I fall flat on my butt and not do anything. I have anxiety. I just need to get it together. One day at a time. I am going to start the rookie run program I printed out last month lol I figured today I should start. I'm not busy after work.

    Green grapes? Avocado? Luscious nectarines? Berries, baby, berries! Maybe there is some lovely, lovely food you can picture that will make your brain snap to attention and agree to go get and eat some. So much easier than when the brain starts slapping the road blocks like "we need a list" or "it will take too long to ripen" stuff.

  I sometimes get depressed when I don't eat properly, and I think it's the type of food that I eat but it could just be my subconscious playing a guilt trip. Hope you feel better soon!

time surely flies.... I can't remember the last entry I had here..but I am sure I said something like how excited I am to start this again...but its like I have my good and bad days..and I think this weekend I jumped off the wagon too soon. I was doing sooo well and then I got into the overeating...(a tad bit) but nevertheless I ate more than I should and what I shouldnt have eaten to top it off..like junk food. chips, cookies, candy, etc... So I am starting again but I am doing the reboot. or as best as I could.. junk food is just so tasty ...but doesnt make me feel energetic or good inside...so I am going to make alternatives to what I like so much. I'll figure it out as I go on...but as of today I started my reboot.. with juicing. I crave a good workout...a nice jog... a hike.. or even jump rope.

Sometimes we have to simply work out ways to not fall as far off the wagon - to jump back on immediately rather than roll around in the dirt.

It's like the saying about steps forward and steps back - the smaller we make those steps back, the easier they are to recover from.

blah! emoticon

My first entry and I'm truly excited to start this new venture.
I've been procrastinating getting to this point, but realized I need to really change up my tune. The regimens that I attempt keep failing because there is no
motivation to get whole heartedly involved. I have blogged before on Livejournal, but I found myself not getting the interaction I was interested in. Although this is completely different from LJ, because there is meaning to this. A healthy lifestyle. I want to inspire as well as get inspired. I love the idea that I can help someone or that they can help me. It could be exchanging a cooking tips, recipe, exercises, or share ideas and thoughts, and possibly appreciate interests and hobbies together...either way its a win win. I'm also a freak with emoticons haha
