Fighting through.....

Thursday, December 08, 2011

Today has been a tough day. Well, I guess when I look at it from a big picture it's not life altering, mind blowing, lol. And I keep having to tell myself that... just to let go and trust God.

Today we took some unexpected hits financially..... won't bore you with details. But I do tend to majorly stress when it comes to money. I know it will be OK and everything will work out in the end, but it is so frustrating to work so hard to get out of debt, save for some "wants", and then out of nowhere something happens. It's called "LIFE" and it stinks sometimes.

I am just sitting here thinknig of all of the things that I need to be grateful for. All of the blessings God has put in my life. I know our situation is miniscule compared to others in this economy.

But despite all the junk that happened today, the binge cravings are out of my system and I was able to stay on track all day. I have that huge mental red flag when it comes to eating certain foods... I know it will trigger a binge. I do not want to go back there!

I am really fighting to fit in exercise! My new doggies are great, but are still too little to keep up with a good, long fitness walk. They are still too curious and want to stop and explore everything. They are taking up a lot of my little extra time that I had.... Cleaning up after them has been better than I expected, but it is still time consuming. I am not one who mops and vaccuums every single night, but since the housetraining is still a work in progress I have been keeping up with it. But I was able to squeeze in an awesome 3 mile walk this afternoon. Did it in just over 43 minutes. I feel great about that. I keep thinking about my weightloss challenge and how I can't screw that up and I am feeling motivated.

SO it feels great that I am control of my food addiction. I may not be able to control the other stuff, but I CAN control this. My eating and exercise has to be a priority in my life. I will succeed!

    emoticon on sticking to your exercise and healthy eating plan. When life happens, I have to remind myself that God is in control and He doesn't give me more than I can handle.

    unexpected financial issues are very hard for me too. I stress hard about money even with a very healthy savings account. I just hate spending on unplanned things.

    Glad you are controlling the cravings. I too have trigger foods and if I stay away from them I lose weight - novel idea I know haha
