Is it over yet???

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

I am starting to wonder if at some point things will return to normal. Where to start... this summer has been hectic to say the least. I moved, helped move my parents, my very ill aunt passed away a week and a half ago, my bf's grandmother passed away on Friday so I had to cancel my trip to go see him, the stress at work has increase exponentially due to stupid people that can't do their job... One thing after another. I have not been working out, and have been eating horribly. I really need to snap myself out of it and just do it. My brain knows I will feel sooo much better when making healthy choices, but the emotional part of me just wants to make unhealthy choices and eat and be lazy. I feel like I'm drowning and can't get my head above water :(

    I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your friend's grandmother and your aunt. Difficult to handle.

    Also the stress at work makes it more difficult.

    You will get a handle on things - just take it a day at a time and you will be ready to get back on track.

    We are here for you :) emoticon

    I know what you are going through in a sense.. I moved back in February, while studying to acquire my mutual funds certification.. Plus starting a new job, it was hectic and I slid off the bandwagon too.. but now I am back at it and more commited than ever.. and I started by tracking... everything.. if i wasnt logging onto sparkpeople i was writing down what i ate and how it made me feel.. or vice versa.. more importantyl i was writing down how i was feeling, why i was feeling that way and was made me gravitate towards that bad food choice and it helped... so did my goal of completing my first half marathon.. in 3 weeks.... YOU GO THIS GIRL! I KNOW YOU DO!. Just think that tomorrow is a new day and it can start and end anyway you want it to.. you just need to decide!

    Take it step by step girl. Sorry for all the sh!t being thrown your way recently, but it will get better, I know it. J ust try and focus on nutrition/tracking for now, then incorporate a couple exercises a week, water, etc. Little by little. You will get back there!

    If you can put one thing back under your control, you might feel a little better. Even just a little thing like drinking only water until things even out, or no sugar... I find when I feel like things are out of control, if I focus on the things I do have control over, and just roll along with the other things, life starts to even out. Good luck to you, and please accept my condolences for the passing of your and your bf's loved ones. emoticon
