I am a work in progress

Monday, February 25, 2013

Well after having a good run at being good again I fell short due to my emotional eating monkey that is on my back. My job has become extremly stressful and given the fact that I work alot of hours and some other smaller things I turned to food and gave in. I did track my food for the most part but on the weekends it's harder due to my home computer being on the fritz. I knew I over did it and my 7 lb. gain showed it..ugh. I am not giving up I will work on the root of this which is not enough balance in my life and I will do this.

    Stress is my down fall too. It wrecks my diet and my health. I need balance as well.

    I find that spending some time pre-preparing healthy snacks really helps me, with a mix of fresh fruit and veggies on hand. I also find that eating more meals of healthy options keeps that snack-monkey away.

The other thing that helps me is to keep my hands busy, and preferably dirty, and away from the kitchen - gardening is the best of these activities for me - so that it just isn't possible for me to snack.

.... I hope that there might be something in these suggestions for you, and that your computer, your job and yourself all have a positive and awesome week!

    Stress and fatigue will get you every time. Tackling the stress will probably help every aspect of your life, so go for it!
