I want to stay positive and not give up...

Saturday, March 23, 2013

I've had a very hungry day today. Or - maybe that isn't really what it has been. I ate lunch out to celebrate my last day at a job I love. Then I came home and ate chocolate and cheese - like I haven't for a month. Now I feel a little sick and depressed.

Sometimes I am good at eating out - and taking home half of everything except the salad. Not today. :( I know I am stressing and emotional. And trying to numb it with food. But knowing that isn't helping much tonight.

So - I am going to stop complaining now and go to bed. I get to go to a Yin Yoga class tomorrow and start over. It takes me a week to lose 1 lb right now and 1 day to gain 3. Not such a good track record... So I am hoping the yoga will get me in better balance.

I know I need to get more active. I can't seem to get to the gym. :( Haven't been for months. I do yoga at home and sometimes even jump on my mini trampoline, use my exercise ball and go for walks. But not very regularly right now. Sigh... Oh - that may have still been complaining - I just don't get myself right now.

I start a new job Monday. I think it is going to be a good one. But it is facing the unknown that has me in a knot. .... ugh. Enough of that.

Off to be and yoga in the morning...l know that will help. Gonna try to do better tomorrow...

    I had to "go to bed" last night as I was starting to reach for stupid things ... not sure why but anyway.
    I read so many "good" emoticon things that you are doing in your post, celebrate all those small victories!

    Good luck on the new job!

    What helps me to stay consistent with exercise is to schedule it. I literally have it written on my calendar what exercise I will do and at what time. For some reason, writing it down there makes me actually do it. Do you think this would help you? Give it a try and see.

    You are speaking my language! All you can do it keep starting over, forget the past!

    Have you tried the spark people videos? When I get in slumps, I get active in short spurts, a 10 minute SP cardio video before work, a 15 minute walking break at work, another short SP video in the evening. This helps ease me back into where I want to be.

    Don't beat yourself up and never ever give up! I hope you have a great weekend and great start on your new job. Congratulations!
