I'm reliving my lifelong struggle. I fall off the healthy lifestyle wagon and wake up everyday with a "today's a new day" attitude, but keep slipping. I know how it feels to eat healthy and stay active - it's great - and I know how awful it feels when I binge on a bag of chips or cookies.
How do I overcome the carb triggers? Sometimes I feel like I'm out of control and stuff myself until I'm miserable just to finish off whatever it is I'm eating. It's like I'm trying to hide what I'm doing from everyone and I actually sneak out to get ice cream.
It's really embarrassing - even when no one else knows. I'm hoping that by putting this on virtual paper and relieving myself of my "secret" I will stop be ashamed about my double life. I need to start walking the talk and getting my tush in gear.
The doc says I need to exercise almost everyday - I'm barely staying consistent with two a week.
Here's to chasing the wagon and finding my permanent seat.
