As a single woman, homeowner, mom, daughter, and teacher, it is hard to fit all of my life in each day. I am working on trying to take better care of me, but the demands are so enormous. Things have been extremely stressful for quite some time moving from one area to another and constant. The stress eating went into full tilt and I find myself back where I was last year at this time. The difference is that I KNOW that SparkPeople works for me.
Job insecurity, financial difficulties, family unrest, and way to much to do on the house have given way to old habits of eating carbs at night in the recliner mindlessly.
My next project is to rearrange furniture and things to make room for my exercise bike where the recliner now sits. I'm hoping that will give me a place to sit while watching TV where I will be too busy to eat. (worth a shot!)
I'm trying to log my food and do ok during the day. The night time is the toughest time for me. My brain is so overloaded and seems to just shutdown and let my hands and mouth fen for themselves.
Doing my best with what I've got and looking forward to summer when I have more time to take care of me and spend more time with all of you.
I'm giving me credit for catching things before they got bad and for making an attempt to stay somewhat active with my SparkPeople with all that is happening around me. I'm thinking right now that the support I always get here might be exactly what I need to help me stay positive.
Thanks for being here!
