Escape and Self Sabotage
Sunday, March 17, 2013
So a three day hiatus from Sparkpeople and 5 pounds up. That's alot of damage in three days. What I needed on Wednesday night was a rest - an escape. Not from taking care of myself but from the other stuff. The homework, the cooking, the rearranging of schedules, the constant going. And my go to has always been food. I knew I was doing it and tried to stop myself but by that point I didn't care. And there definitely was some self sabotage in there as I had recently lost my first ten pounds. I need to not let myself get too tired. Let some stuff go. Say no and stop volunteering for things for just awhile. And stop connecting my weight loss journey with every other issue in my life - so if I'm annoyed or stressed over one thing then I don't start eating and sitting in front of the TV. I did so yesterday - the whole day- and I don't feel rested.
Weighed myself this morning. Checked in with Spark Coach. Going to exercise and church. Getting on the path. I'm already on it, in fact.
