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!
Put it behind you and emoticon I am right behind you ... emoticon

    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!
