Feeling Low

Thursday, January 10, 2013

Iím very down right now. I just threw and all-out tantrum at my closet. Iím sick of looking like a stack of pancakes in my clothing! My husband says we can go shopping for new clothes, but I feel like thatís such a waste! I just keep getting bigger! Every time I buy clothing that fits I get bigger!!
Iím also mad because I havenít been able to go for my walk for three days.
Hubby planned a date night on Tuesday after I got off work. We did eat smarter. But we also rounded out the night by trying some new beers, which has to be as bad for my diet as soda (if not worse!), and we got home too late to go walking.
Yesterday I donated blood right after work and things didnít go so hot, so I was in no position to go for a walk. On the way home we picked up Chick-fil-a (my first fast food of 2013) and I was so out of it I ordered two sandwiches! And ate them both!!
Which brings us to today; I work the evening/night today and we spent the morning trying to figure out what was happening with our cars (one is in the shop and the other needs to go in ASAP) to the extent that by the time we knew anything I needed to get ready for work. Thus missing our chance to walk once again!
And that was about when my tantrum kicked in. I got out of the shower and nothing fit right. Everything I could wear comfortably was dirty, and I missed another day of walking!
Iím feeling very down and very hopeless. Iím using SparkPeople to vent because there is no one to talk to about this right now and Iím just so frustrated!
Sorry for the low tone of this post fellow Sparkers.

    No need to feel sorry, we all have those low days. Hang in there.

No need to be sorry about being down, but I sure know what it's like to feel frustrated when none of my clothes fit and when everything seems to be going wrong.

Sometimes a good rant or vent helps me, sometimes even a good cry. What I do after that though, is pick myself up and carry on.

For me, I've found I have to make my fitness and healthy eating a top priority again. When I did that the last time I was here, it worked. I'd rarely skip workouts because I knew myself well enough that if I did it too often, it would just get easier and easier to skip them. I did eventually do just that, and of course now have to start over.

A few of the things that I've found work for me are planning ahead, setting small goals/challenges for myself and tracking my food and workouts for points. They help to keep me on track and inspired and motivated.

Tomorrow is another day. Making these kinds of changes isn't easy, but if you can find something that helps you to keep on track it will make this much less of a struggle.
