Who invited stress to the party?
Tuesday, January 22, 2013
This week there is a lot of stress coming at me which means added struggles to eat healthy and workout...cause that isn't hard enough for someone who is over 100 overweight to stay focused on.
Now the common sense side of me says if I eat healthy and work out then that will help reduce the stress and help me get through this. Then there is the other side that says just eat a bucket of ice cream and it will be fine. Wow, I'm a real life Mini Wheat trying to decide if I'm sweet or healthy. While those two sides of my brain battles it out I have lost 3 pounds in two days. I'm now under 280 again but I don't know if I want to believe it. Let's face it, I've never been one to lose weight when stressed. I looked back at my food log, I thought I had binged but when I look at it all I did was eat at the top of my range. When I'm stressed I like to clean, my house is spotless and I'm sure that burned for calories than I think it did.
As I read this blog it occurs to me, I am not making excuses to why I gained weight, I'm actually making excuses to why I lost. If one of my friends said this to me, I'd have to admit, I'd kinda point and laugh at them.
