Starting all over again

emoticon so here I am back again after a huge while - and I am way off track so far that I dont feel that i can see where i want to get to...

still this morning despite weighing myself - and it is now 167.8 pound heavier than I have ever been and feeling very down ............I managed to put on my gym gear and get into the gym. Now I only did about 20 minutes alternating walking (5) and jogging for 1 minute at a time but that is a whole heap more than I have done for ages.

Ate a galette (dukan) for breakfast and am now entering this blog. It is a start.

Life has been very difficult over the last year with my husband retiring from work, which created stress, then having a minor stroke, more stress, then becoming depressed about both of these, all this and more stuff and I have dived into alcohol - prefer it to sleeping pills and food for comfort - so it is easy to see how it has happened but that is not a good reason to let it carry on

I know this will be a difficult path for me to follow so I have made a simple list of things that make me feel better when i do them and things that make the day worse - thanks to Mike Neil a great coach and inspiration for the idea - and I am just going to note when I do or dont do them and how I feel about myself .....

Very simple things on the list like drinking water, exercise ( however little) or on the other comfort eating or drinking and the results of that , not going to beat myself up one way or the other just to notice and see what happens

wishing you luck in your endeavours and hope you find the inner resource to help you on your journey

    No, don'[t beat yourself up. Take it from me, who did that for many many years, it will get you nowhere. We all make mistakes, it's how we handle the mistakes that is important. It can be a tough road but it's a good one. Just be honest with yourself. Hold yourself accountable. Don't beat yourself up when you fumble, just admit the error and go on. Before long it will be come part of your life and a habit.
    Hang in there all those changes at once is very stressful. Journal or blog. I find journaling works wonderful. I can piss and moan and no one knows it but my journal, it's done and over with and I can go on. After awhile the words just flow too.

    Need a hand just give me a shout.
