so here I am back on sparkpeople yet again after a couple months of being away. I need to try and keep at it this time.
I know that one of the main issues I struggle with is emotional eating. I have depression and anxiety so it happens far too often. I have just recently started seeing a psychologist so hopefully he will be able to help me get a handle on the emotional eating. He works holistically so he doesn't advocate the use of drugs in treating psychological problems. I really like that as I am against drugs. He has me on a number of homeopathic remedies so we'll see how they work lol.
I also need to work on exercise which I know is an issue for many people lol. I do ballroom dance lessons once or twice a week but it just isn't enough. I am not going to push too hard on the exercise front just yet as I think it's going to be a difficult process working on the emotional stuff. I need to keep my goals reasonable lol. I also think that exercising more often will be easier as the anxiety and depression improve. I know that exercise is supposed to really help but I can't try to do too much all at once. I'll do what little amount of exercise I can for now and then work on improving that as the other stuff gets better.
So my main goals for right now are improving my mental well being and my nutrition.
