It's a hard fight.

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Woke up late this morning but still went to the gym. I do feel good when I go, but sometimes getting there is a struggle. Last night I was so tired, and I munched out on Doritos and Chex mix and had two glasses of wine. It is so right, that when you are tired you will eat. Especially when you have to stay awake. I should have just went to sleep, but I had to look after my Mom.

I take care of my Mom and it's hard mentally. She has dementia. I wanted to go right in my bed after work, but I couldn't.

This morning I got on the scale and had gained 2 pounds. Was I disgusted, you better believe it. I put on a skirt and it fit well enough for me to wear to work, so I didn't feel that bad. That made me feel good. Getting up and going to the gym is paying off. Maybe I lost some inches!

    Keep pushing yourself. I am learning to not let boredom or stress trigger an emotional eating binge. The Doritos and wine don't sound like "fuel" or "nutrition", they sound like "old habits" trying to fight their way back into your life.

    I just started today, listening to a free daily video. I think it's going to help me. You may want to check it out at it was pretty good for the 1st day! I think it's going to help me FOCUS each day.

    Keep up your work outs. NEVER Give up!
