Not having the best day...

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

The title says it. I don't know what's up. I've been feeling exhausted (despite getting enough sleep) for the past few days, last night I got dizzy and nauseous, my head felt really heavy, my skin is burning hot even though I'm cold (I don't have any fever though) and my eyes feel like they're burning.

I didn't go to my classes today and spent the day resting. It's now 6:30 pm here and on top of everything else, I'm having the worst cravings for ice cream and chocolate right now. I don't get it - I'm sick, food should be the last thing on my mind, right? Well, it isn't, and I'm not having a spectacular day food-wise so far. Nothing disastrous, but my lunch could have been healthier and I just had a big handful of chocolate candies.

This is probably emotional eating, right? I'm feeling bored and sick and that's why I'm feeling the need to overeat. How do I get past it? I'm just trying to wait it out, eat something healthy instead and do a very light yoga workout and meditate afterwards. Maybe it'll help.

I'm sorry I'm not much fun today! But I believe in being honest; that's what this blog is for, after all.

I hope you're having a better day than I am!

    HHHMMM, I just don't see any difference. You are beautiful and a wonderful person. I guess those inner demons are just too deep and small for anyone else to see. You can take them on and beat them with very little effort. Now kick butt and don't waste time taking names. ;-)

    Distract, distract, distract. That's what I do when I have cravings for unhealthy food. Keep getting some rest too it sounds like your body needs it. Hope you feel better soon!

    Sorry to hear that you don't feel well... Try to find something to distract you, like watching TV or calling a friend... I usually call my friend (who's on diet, too) and tell her to keep me busy for a while so I won't eat... An you can always try hot tea to help you with the cravings, it usually makes me feel full.

    We all have off days, Annie, because we're sick, run down. stressed for whatever reason... Nurse yourself back to health with some down time relaxing then bounce back strong like you've been doing. Hoping the bug doesn't last long. emoticon -- Lou

    I'm sorry your not feeling too good. : (
Hang in there and keep pushing through it. I think what you decided to do as in the light yoga workout and meditate should help or even go out for a walk ( if the weather is nice enough) to distract yourself from the cravings. I confess that last weekend I had a huge craving for chocolate and it was TOM for me so I knew that was why. I did have 2 snack size chocolates to stop the cravings and then just watched the football game on t.v. with my family. Once this week started, I just got back on my plan and moved on forward just like you will too. :)
Hang in there girl.
You are strong and can get through this.
Make sure to keep hydrating yourself.
