Rough few weeks

Monday, April 22, 2013

It has been a rough few weeks for me. I can't explain a lot of what has been going on, but I can go into some details here.

I've been sick off and on for the past month or so. This cold that I've picked up just won't go away. My congestion has spun into a sore throat and a horrible cough that has been keeping me up at night. Instead of eating healthy to get myself feeling better I've decided to eat ice cream to "help" my sore throat. It does make me feel better, but the weight has been piling back on because of it. Now I'm back to where I started...

Can't go into the details, but I've been a little down in the dumps. I have some things to work through moving forward, but that has been weighing on me. I'm hoping I can use this feeling as an opportunity to get healthy vs. eating away my sorrows.

I'm ready to push forward and make progress again. So tired of being unhealthy. So tired of eating to drown out my emotions. The void can't be filled with food and the void isn't located in my stomach. Need to do some serious work, ladies and gents. Let's get to it.

On a positive note, I've discovered that I LOVE Fruit2O water. SO TASTY! Great way for me to get back to drinking more water. 0 calories and 0 carbs. Yay!

    You may need an antibiotic if you are sick and are not getting better. i had to get one myself. I understand about it being a rough time. Ithasbeen for me too so know you are not alone but you can get through this.

    Eek... I know you need to get better but maybe there is a better way to soothe your throat than ice cream? I say work out but take it easy. Don't run yourself into the ground. I know we all have our secrets. And I really hope you can sort these things out. If you need to vent you can always inbox me... (I don't think I know anyone in your life so there isn't that worry lol) My problem is I just want to come home and lay on the couch with my bf and lose weight just like him. But that isn't in the cards for me... I actually have to work at it... go figure. We can do this. We will do this. The weather is getting nicer and begging us to come outside and enjoy the sun!

    Feels like the cold/flu did all slow us down. I can say that I am better for the last 3 days (been sick since March 1!!) - Personally, my step back just made me more miserable and it's way harder than I thought gaining back my motivation. For the last few weeks, I'm trying to put these bad feelings into workout instead of food. I'm about 60 % there...
    Take one day at the time, and take care of yourself.
