Pity Party Day


Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Really feel like a having a big ol' pity party for myself today. I have eaten so much crap and I keep going back to the pantry for more. I HATE days like this. Yeah, it's emotional eating. I'm stuck in my house pretty much day after day after day. The only times I really get out is when I go the gym and when I go to the commissary. Only having one car sucks, but we are hoping to change that status when we get our tax refund and we can get a cheap 2nd car. Not that I will really have any where to go with a 2nd vehicle, but at least I will have the option of leaving if I want to. I need to find a productive hobby that will help with my boredom.

I'm also becoming bored at the gym with my workouts. I really need to find something that will make it interesting again. I usually go through this every couple of months but I always know that once I get going on my workout I feel so much better. But it really is my diet that is driving me crazy. Of course the only one in charge of my diet is me. I'm the one who does all the food shopping, all the food planning, all the food cooking. I need to get excited about fun, new ways of cooking food again. Plus I just need to buckle down and stay within my calories. I did it for close to 2 years, so I know it's possible. We are also looking at replacing our grill so that will make me happy so that we can grill more food, to me it just taste better grilled, lol.

Right now I feel all I'm doing is talking and not putting any actions behind my words. I need to get my butt off the couch and do something!


I do have something to look forward to: once my husband and I have some extra cash we are going to go on a date, to a nice restaurant and maybe to a bar to relax away from the house and the kids. We actually need to set this up for a once a month thing.

Later Dayz

    I live way out in the woods...we do have 2 cars but to go anywhere is about an hour so I struggle with the bored thing too....I know I can always work or clean something but that gets old and is mindless.

I'd like to take up playing the piano...I can play a little but I think that needs to be my hobby.

As for new foods...I love pinterest. I've found so many new cool salad and healthy recipes on there.

    I definitely understand the only having one vehicle thing. Hope it does improve for you soon.

  It's tough when you're stuck at home and can't get out.

Putting the actions behind the words is so much easier when you're at least saying teh right words, so kudos on being partway there.

    Do you live on base? Is there a park nearby that you and the kids can walk to? It will give you a little exercise, get you out of the house, and you will have fun with your kids. Also, as far as workout boredom goes, why don't you set a goal to try a different Spark workout video a day or every other day? There are so many free workouts available on the site that you won't repeat one for a long time. It might be just what you need to add a little something to your workout. What kind of hobbies do you like? Do you like to read or knit or anything like that? Both of those can be done for cheap (or free in the case of reading library books) and it will definitely keep you occupied. Good luck with everything. You can do it!

    Well you definitely know what to do to as far as your boredom at home and the gym. Maybe writing out specific goals might help
I love the idea of a date night with your hubby. I believe that is essential for a healthy married couple and makes for a happy mommy. We as mom's need to reenergize so we can be the best possible mom and wife we can be.
Keep us posted on your journey. You are doing awesome!
