Letting Stress Derail Me!

Sunday, February 03, 2013

I should know better. But during this past week I have let stress derail my efforts. My DH is having some medical issues and I'm worried about him. Waiting to get in to see the Dr. is frustrating - I want answers now. But no matter the results, I shouldn't let that stress interfere with my own healthy habits. I turned to comfort food and didn't plan my meals - which in turn caused me to eat too many calories. My weight jumped up already! I have made an effort to get back on track - at least I'm doing that quicker than I used to! But I let myself fall under the bus instead on staying in control in the driver's seat! I need to turn it around TODAY. So far, so good.

Since I posted this a week ago, I DID turn it around! I've almost lost the weight that I gained but I'm still mad at myself for letting that happen. I know better!

    I know it has been about a week since you posted this blog, and I know you are already on the right path. Sometimes life throws a detour at us, and we have to change direction or do what we can. Recognizing the need for change and acting upon it takes courage and strength, of which you have a lot. I admire you Grace. I applaud you Grace. I hope it continues to turn out well for DH and Ben and of course you as you continue toward your goals! emoticon

    Hang in there Grace!! That must be very stressful, but don't worry, that will work itself out..staying focused is a good distraction in the mean time. emoticon emoticon
