Eh . . . not such a great week. I gave in to some binge eating with New Year's and the disappearance of some long-term house guests. And I've got some sort of sinus thing going on -- feeling bad just makes me want to munch. However .. .
Today was a great day - good food, good workout, good times. It really helped me in my workout to listen to some upbeat music. I forget sometimes what a mood changer that can be. So, onward and upward.
I learned today from ~INDYGIRL about HALT, learning to listen to my emotions when I feel myself leaning toward a binge. I'm trying to get to the point of eating when I am hungry, but I'll admit that angry, lonely, and tired often get to me. So does Available - at work this week, there was so much food sitting around! I eat lunch in the lounge, not in the restaurants nearby. I can bring my own healthful lunch. But the lounge is also the place where people park their holiday goodie leftovers. Sometimes, I have the energy to just get up and leave, but this week, I wasn't very good at that. It's easier when the weather is warm and I can go outside after my meal. I need to come up with a new plan for days when the candy, cake, and cookies are in my face.
Tonight I'm reading by the fire, cats and husband nearby, small glass of wine to sip (my weekend treat), and Dickens to amuse me. Life is good. SparkPeople makes it better.
