I read a friend's blog today. I was pleasantly happy for her. She dealing with a lot of stress yet she is fighting the fight to change her stress eating habits to a healthier activity.
I, on the other hand, am not dealing with the stress the way I should. I probably would have lost the 4lbs I gained from vacation if it were not for the constant stress eating. I know better too! But there is so much I can workout. Last summer, I workout some days twice. The second usually being something aquatic, water jogging, laps, water aerobics or strength training using the water as my resistance. This year I just feel funny in my swimsuit in front of the contractors. Well, actually more because I am alone in the pool. Not a problem last year because no one was there to observe me. I don't mind so much when the kids are with me. But then again. we play more then workout.
So, I need to come up with another healthy idea to counter act the stress beside eating! Again I don't mind working out twice but it is just NOT always feasible. Reading is like TV watching for me..."where is the comfort food and drinks that go with it!!
I could use some suggestions.
