Not feeling so Hot.

Friday, January 11, 2013

I just do not feel good tonight. Mentally feeling negative and run down. Physically feeling like the flu might be in my near future. My daughter got sent home from school early today for coughing.. (by a substitute teacher). Her teacher is out sick. She was NOT that sick today! She didn't want to come home. I was at the gym when I got the call from the nurse. It just set a different tone for me all day. I wish I didn't let it. Now I'm overtired and overwhelmed. I feel like I went off track a little today. I ate food when I wasn't hungry. I have NOT been drinking enough water at all! I really need to make it a priority to drink enough water daily! I just feel down right now. I don't feel as hopeful. Words of encouragement please. Maybe today is just one day out of the rest of my life. I just need to stop being so hard on myself!

    I'm so sorry about the hard day you had. It's good that you've been able to see that it triggered some unhealthy eating. I would try to remember that next time. it's good that you wrote it down because it'll stick in your mind. It's really important to discover what your triggers are so you can make a plan of attack the next time you have something go awry. Sit down and write down what caused the issue, and then write down what you plan on doing next time. That should help you.

I get up first thing in the morning and fill up my 32 oz cup with ice water. I read an article that said that you can wake up slightly dehydrated and so it is good if you drink a glass of water as soon as you get up. It also helps to lift your spirits, I find.

Don't be too hard on yourself. We all make mistakes! Yesterday I went over my calories by about 200 calories, my fat, carbs, and under on my calcium, but I try to remember that it is a journey that I'm on. It isn't a sprint, but a journey. Try to pace yourself and if you flub, forgive yourself and commit to do better next time.

And yes, I do agree with you that this is just one day out of your life. Will you remember this day in a year or two or five? Most likely not. perspective is very important. You can do this! I know you can! Don't give up! emoticon
