As I was jogging (yes- jogging) on my treadmill I was thinking that if I was snowed in this much back in December I would have behaved SO differently!!
This is what what these last few days WOULD have looked like back in December:
Sat around ALL day.... snoozing on and off
Cooking fattening comfort foods..
Eating every hour on the hour..
Crying because I lost control and did nothing but sit around and eat
What it has looked like:
Some sitting around, reading and FBing and SPARKING (collecting motivation)
Cooking Healthy Foods for dinner AND breakfast
Not eating in between meals except for fruit or popcorn
Working out for 30-60 minute stints
Feeling happy and proud
Thank God I decided not to long ago to take these baby steps to gain some control!! I have SAD(seasonal affect disorder) along with my clinical depression and I am on antidepressants-- and with SAD the meds aren't usually enough... with this snow and being trapped in.. I am not feeling my SAD!! Not at all.. the exercise with meds makes me feel SO GOOD! The cloud is not there. Loving it!!
Now I have to keep it up- I am a little worried about not having snow days as I have had all of this time to focus on myself but I am pretty sure I have now put exercise in my top priority list now so I should carry on successfully. Cross your fingers!!
