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!
