Mid-March Snow Storm!

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Here we are two days from Spring, and getting the wettest snow storm of the season... wish I had the time to build a snowman! Instead I shoveled my driveway, and it actually tried to rain during the process; that's March for you!

Anyhow... I am a month into my new weight-loss journey. It's weird not weighing myself (I will weigh-in the first week of April); I do feel better, my clothes feel a bit looser, too. I did hit some clearance racks over the weekend, it was fun!

The stress-eating showed it's nasty head this month. I had taken the first week off do some skiing and some serious house cleaning (getting ready for a much needed yard sale). Then my first week back to work was "interesting."

Of course there was a pile of work leftover from the previous week that I had to deal with...then the extra for the current week. Well, I fell right back into my old habits. It was quite amazing to be in the thick of it and, on top of it, to actually realize what was happening.

Fortunately I had abstained from the vending machine (woo-hoo!), I had brought in enough of my own food to keep me satisfied. But the urges to EAT... unbelievable! I just kept reminding myself to slow down, eat consciously/mindfully, use some EFT tapping to get over the desire to eat something even though I was not hungry (that has always been tough for me).

Here I am into the second week back at work, things are calming down (emotionally) for me, getting back into the groove so to speak. Will "chat" again soon!

    Sometimes I deliberately refrain from having extra spending money on me so that I can't give into any temptations either vending machine or convenience store varieties...good job!

    Sounds as though you kept your head while the urge to lose it was looming large! LOL The planning kept you from the snack machine...your efforts to focus kept you (somewhat) calm. It's one step, one day one week and one month at a time...loose clothing and bargains too...WooHoo!

    Hey teammate, you are doing great, sounds like! Keep up the great work. It'll be exciting to see what the scale says come April -and even if it hasn't moved much by then, you already see you're getting looser clothing! Muscle takes up less space, but weighs more!

    I love the fact that you took good things with you to eat, instead of hitting the vending machine. You are doing a great job, stick with it, & thanks for posting an interesting blog. Have a blessed day!!!
