What I did today INSTEAD of emotional eating...
Tuesday, March 26, 2013
Today started out rough. Lots of emotional triggers. It turns out that being a parent to a teenage girl is challenging? Who knew, right?
I got to the office, grouchy and tired, but instead of eating, my first thought was that I wished I could work out. I was at the office though, with lots of grading to do, and no work out gear. I considered it a small victory that I was thinking about exercise more than food (which is my normal MO).
My sparkpeeps motivated me to think outside the workout box and to get my priorities straight. Instead of plummeting into grading and feeling worse, I found this online: www.youtube.com/watch?v=
I did it. Right there in my office and in my fancy skirt and boots.
I didn't work out as hard as I would have at home in my workout gear, but I did it. And you know? I felt AWESOME afterward.
Then later in the day? I won a national teaching award. Yep. That just happened.
Good things come to people who work out. THANKS, SPARKPEEPS!
