On this journey of good physical health I told myself that I would write when I felt the need to. In my past I would eat through my emotions but now I write instead. I feel so proud of myself for writing instead of eating. It's a much better healthier choice.
The last 3 days sure have been emotionally interesting. Friday was a really good day for me. I walked to town to go to work and put in some time. I work at nursery so I wanted to get things ready for the month of April for the kids. When I was done I walked to the bank to deposit my paycheck and then I walked on home. It was so nice to be walking out in God's amazing creation. The sun was out and it was wonderful. I called Dennis and told him what a good day I was having. I was gone for 45 minutes walking and I love that............
Saturday came. I walked over to my weight lifting class at 7:30 as the class starts at 8:00. I need time to get my weighs all set up and my bench. The class was intense but it was one of those moments I have where my heart and mind wanted to lift weights but my body didn't. See we have been getting a lot of rain and it's hard on my joints as I have arthritis. But I did ok in the class. When it was over I was headed out the door to come home and yes it was raining again. Saturday it rained most all day. What a depressing day it was for me. Now in my past I would of eaten my way through a depressing day. Well not that day. I made good choice and tried real hard to stick to my plan. I am currently doing calorie cycling and that day I was to eat at the high end of my calories which I did.
Now onto Sunday. I woke up knowing I had to work that day. I also knew I needed to eat at the low end of my calories. I walked to work..........had a good time with the kids. I also had a plan for my afternoon. After I ate I changed into my workout clothes and I lifted weights for an hour. Then later I walked for 40 minutes to my friend Geri's house. I felt so good walking out in the sun sharing my thoughts with Jesus. I also felt so good that I got my cardio and weight lifting all done. Usually Sunday is my rest day but I felt so good that I wanted to workout so I did.
So that is the story of my last 3 days. I am so proud of what I had done those 3 days. It feels so good to look back and say "WOW Terri I am so proud of what you did for yourself". For me that is HUGH. When you are an emotional eater and to not eat through your emotions is a BIG step in the right direction. Now here is my day 4. I get to get up and go to my Group Power weight lifting class that I so do love. Then after that I am going grocery shopping. I love the fact I get to make good choices in what I buy to eat. I am so stoked about both of those things. I love bringing nutritious things into my home to eat. I love fueling my body with healthy things. I love my clean eating life style. So my journey continues..................car
rots, strawberries, lifting weights, running, Jesus, Dennis and all.................
