I still hurt from Water Zumba and I'm trying not to be cranky. Pain does funny things like:
- makes me seek out comfort food
- makes me feel sorry for myself
- makes me forget my meal plan
- distracts my from my goals
- makes me afraid to move
Okay, just had an "Ah Ha" moment. Pain doesn't make me do anything, it just provides me with an excuse to revert back to old habits. One old habit I did not fall into was buying junk food. I stuck to what was on my list. Once home, I was like a drug addict seeking out a fix of food to soothe my pain.
It is easy to slip back into the old habits. Instead of trying to fill a void, I will address my needs. I will press forward... and work on creating a nurturing environment to help support me while I heal and an environment to support my life.
