...and I got it...and about 14 others just like it :) The recovery to my bunion surgery requires me to be off my feet for more than two weeks. Normally, I would be in an absolute dither b/c I couldn't clean, get up and around, etc. But, SP has taught me about acceptance regarding my weight loss, etc... so I'm applying the same principles. I have my laptop, some great books, my phone, and my cat...My 'recovery room' (living room) looks as if a bomb went off, but when I accept that it's only temporary, I can just sit back and relax. It's amazing, I have used this site for sooooo m any other things besides weight loss and healthy eating - thanks SP!

...the good news is that I will have plenty of time to devote to this site for the next few weeks... the bad news is I won't be able to exercise like I was until my foot heals... the good news is when I am able to start exercising I won't have blisters on the tops, sides, and bottom of my foot!!! :)

I have been feeling more and more energetic...so as yesterday was an extra day off, I decided to have an 'exercise day'. I planned my entire day around physical fitness, and realized when the day was done that I actually did three major activities, hence the Triathlon. And while it wasn't anything even close to what major athletes do, nor were all the activities consecutive, it was definitely a first for me.
I kayaked for 2 hours in the am, came home, worked in the gardens for a couple of hours, then took a 1-hour walk (4 miles), then came home and rode my bike for 4 miles.
I finished the day with some great stretches and an epsom salt bath. Got up today and feel like a million (well, at least a couple of) bucks!

I don't over eat when I'm sad, I don't over eat when I'm angry or mad, I don't over eat when I'm tired, I don't over eat when I'm happy,,,
I did find out after joining SP that I over eat when I'm perfectly fine and not paying any attention to how many times my hand goes into the basket of chips, cookies, etc. I fit the definition of mindless eater to a "T"...and have been working on that.
...but I knew there was something else that I just couldn't quite put my finger on...and then the other day - Bingo... there it was - in full force. I was at working on a team project and I was the person who had to receive everything from everyone else and get everything put into the system...and we have an absolute deadline. Every year, I am promised we will start earlier the next year - and it has yet to happen. And this year is the absolute worst of all years - everyone has been waaaaayyyyy behind. The first day someone put a major delay into the system, I realized I reached for an unhealthy snack, and then another, and then another. Same thing the next day, and the day after that, and the day after that. I don't even want to step on the scale b/c I know I will see a weight gain... I have stopped tracking anything after lunch b/c I know I will be a gazillion calories.
For two nights in a row my dinner has been potato chips - and I don't mean single serving bags - I mean the big, family size bag (and I'm the only family in my house!). I come home and hit the couch b/c I'm too tired to get up and walk or exercise. The silver lining is that I have now realized another facet about my emotional eating but I am so frustrated with myself. I have been working so hard - I have to reclaim myself. I have to tell myself that it doesn't matter how anxious I am - food isn't going to take the anxiety away - but maybe a good walk with multiple deep breathes will lessen it... Ugggghhhhh!
