Life getting in the way

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

The last few days have really been a trial for me. We have had some family drama to deal with in our house, and it had really set me on edge. And when I'm edgy, I eat. I know that this is emotional eating, and it's why I'm so heavy, but it's a lot harder to stop than I thought.

Top it off with me being really sick over the weekend, and I haven't been the good sparker I want to be for the last few days. This morning, though, I'm trying to pick myself up by the boot straps and get back in the saddle. I am counting my calories again, and hoping to get in 10-12 minutes on the elliptical tonight.

I know I can beat my weight and my emotional eating, but gosh darn, it's hard sometimes.

    when the emotions get to you and you just have to chew, grab some carrot sticks... and light ranch dip, or as goofy as it sounds... mustard. at least low cal to get past those emotions.

    I know those feelings - Keep focused have you got a goal in mind if you have have it as your mantra say it over and over in your head. I've started doing this and its helping me with my cravings.

    Hope your family issues quieten down and good luck
