Starting again

Friday, September 28, 2012

Yesterday was the first time I worked out in a long while. I'm proud to say that even though it has been weeks since my last workout before then, I completed the usual 40 minutes. The last 10 minutes are the hardest but at the same time it's the best part of the whole workout. I really feel like I'm pushing it to the extreme when it gets to that point and am loving that feeling of accomplishment that settles in immediately afterwards.

I did overeat a little bit in the evening but I've been dealing with this problem for years. I'm an emotional eater. Every time I feel anxious, depressed, or any other negative emotion; I eat. Sometimes I eat when I'm bored although I feel that when it gets to that point it allows my mind to wander off a bit. I start thinking negatively about things and I suppose that's what brings on my negative emotions causing me to overeat. Eating to me is a relief, an escape from reality and how I cope with things.

Hopefully, today will be a better day. I'm going to go do my 40 minutes on the bike, take care of the dogs, do some housework, and I'd like to finish up reading this book I started reading on meditation. Maybe I'll go do the park with my spaniel, Phoenix, also. I know that I can't have a perfect day as much as I wish there was such a thing but I have to be more optimistic in life. So, wish me luck......
