Had a bad day yesterday; had to sell some things I like in order to pay some bills. I misjudged a few things. I know it happens, but it is a bummer. I let things change my mental state too much. Thankfully I'm seeing a professional to help me regulate my depression. Last night I ate out of emotion without consideration. Thankfully there wasn't too much food in the house, so that kept the consumption minimal.
Today I woke up with the same feelings, still eating a bit out of control, but I was able to snag some exercise in there. So, after tracking, I'm about 600 calories over my range and burned about the same in exercise. I'm feeling a bit better emotionally too. My primary care doctor confirmed the exercise will help my emotions too.
So, now I'm forcing myself to get on and earn some spark points. Trying to keep my game up and see my new healthier ME.
I'm using Wii Fit, which is REALLY nice. What I like most isn't necessarily the exercises, but the graphs. I like to see when and what time I weight myself. To see my progress. And then...if I have an increase, it keeps a log of what my reasonings were (eating too much, snacking, etc.) I'm looking forward to seeing what else becomes of this journey.
