It seems that every time I attempt to take on a lifestyle change, there are so many outside forces working against me. The weather today is the big one. Storming weather that isn't safe has already quashed my first goal of getting outside to exercise at least once a day. I will still exercise today, but was looking forward to getting outside for a change. I've been working on my Couch Potato to 5K for quite some time. My biggest issue with exercise is that it has to be little to no impact because I have problems with my feet.
I've also found that the minute I start paying attention to the things that I put in my mouth, I feel three times as hungry as I did before I was paying attention!! This is so frustrating to me. I'm an emotional eater, so when I'm bored or whatever emotion it is, I feel like snacking. I have been conscious of this for quite some time and have been good about NOT snacking, but I wasn't really hungry then. Now I feel like I'm starving!! LOL
I have a wonderful supportive husband and family so I know that I'm the one who really needs to buckle down and get this thing under control. I can't blame anyone but myself. So off I go... plodding on. :)
