Rock bottom and yet drilling for lower
Saturday, July 07, 2012
I feel like I refuse to get my feet underneath me and get my diet under control.
I feel like the 100 degree temperatures are working against me, though. A few days at the in-laws, where the temps never dipped below 90, and with no workout equipment available... and tons of junk food with no fruits and limited vegetables. And then a movie theater popcorn and and and.
But, really, I need to shape up my attitude. I walk around chanting things like "you're a fat fatty" to myself, which frustrated my husband to no end. He doesn't like it when I am really mean to myself. I don't blame him, because it doesn't help anything.
The temperatures are supposed to break tomorrow. I am home. I am working out again. I am trying to stay hydrated, rested, and exercised. I get most of the way through any week but I trail off by the end of the week. This week, though, I've loaded up the fridge with fruits and vegetables and lower calorie frozen treats (like the yesso brand greek yogurt pops).
I've also recently changed medication, to try and manage my symptoms. I don't know how much that is affecting my mood, either, and I think it's affecting me, some. But then again, so does pain and feeling like I'm living my life around that time of the month, you know?
Come ON, self. Step up. Adjust the attitude. This is not insurmountable. I can get out of my own way.
