I let stress dictate what I do

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

I have been doing very well eating a healthier diet. Yesterday and this evening I caved when it came to eating a healthier diet. Once more after a stressful day at work I let my stress get to me, and I ate to ease my uncomfortable feelings. Eating didn't change anything.

I must press forward!

    emoticon Hang in there. A lot of us have this habit and it is a challenge to change this way of soothing ourselves for a healthier way. Exercise, quiet time or meditation, hot shower, cup of tea?? sometimes I just don't remember these better choices.

    I think we all struggle with the comfort food thing. The best advice I have ever gotten about that was from a friend in my ymca weight loss group. "Food is fuel Lisa, nothing else. Once you view food that way, things will start to change for you". I still struggle occasionally but I remember those words and it helps keep me on track.

    Eating doesn't change anything - at least, you are cementing that thought in your brain for next time you're tempted.

    When I am stressed I like my comfort food too. I wonder if when you are not feeling stressed if you could come up with one or two options that you could have for your meal that fall in the category of comfort food yet now can also be healthy? In the is progress not perfection that we are after!

    Try not to allow one mistake an entire day of errors. Take it one step at a time with healthy choices along the way.
