I think my whole system is throwing a temper tantrum after my surgery and I have just not been able to get ahold of myself. I realize I should be able to take control of at least my eating and have some control over my body but something happens between my brain and my mouth. I don't know why we do these "binge eating" sorts of things but I have been bad with my eating. And I hate myself for doing it, yet when DH (the world's best cook) brings me a plate of pasta with alfredo sauce (one of his favs) or a juicy burger (one of my weaknesses too) I just can't say no. What's up with that? And oh the ice-cream cone binges are killing me too. I have loads of tomatoes, green beans, zucchini and other squash etc coming out my ears in the garden but I keep giving them away and not eating near enough of them myself. Much of it is because we have traveled way too much this summer (this weekend we took our new to us Classic Cougar on a weekend trip, which was a blast but messed up my eating). Not to mention all the sitting rather than exercising that happens when we're traveling. Ugh!!!
So now I'm trying to get back on track and I'm inspired to start again :) I got up this morning and started in with slowly sipping my coffee, and made a new decision..."take the dog for a walk" I heard my mind say to myself. Self I said, "yes just like Nike...just do it." So I did, we even went the direction where there are some gentle hills. Then I was excited to have done it. What? I could have walked everyday? Huh? What a novel thought. I haven't but I will. So yay for today. I think I'll go do some laps in the pool next. Woo Hoo, a double whammy for my body. I hope you are making progress toward your health goals also.
Hugs to all,
