Today is my "official" weigh-in, and I am up two pounds. Not much to say about that except I slipped, which I'm attributing 100% to stress. I caught it, but not soon enough.
Overall, I have been doing pretty well, but I still get myself into these little emotional cycles of doom. When I'm stressed and busy, I eat the easiest thing (usually something wheat-y and junky). This leads me to feel like crap, and then I eat for comfort and laziness again. This goes on for a few days until I am obsessively craving healthy food because my body needs it. Except by the time it's over, I'm up two pounds. :/
I know I need to find a better stress-busting mechanism (exercise really helps me here, but I'm still struggling to squeeze it in). And I know I need to continue being prepared and making the best possible choices. It's just so hard sometimes.
I'm a big fan of Chalene Johnson and lately I've been hearing her peppy voice in my head saying "Do More!" This needs to be my motto. Life is busy and is always going to be busy, but I feel better when I've worked hard and accomplished something. When I am tired, I still need to exercise. And when I'd rather watch TV, I better fold the laundry instead. Because I feel better when I do it. I need to do it. I have to avoid the cycle or I'll never succeed.
Anyway, thanks for letting me vent! Physically I feel pretty gross, but mentally I'm starting to come out of my fog. Let's hope I can turn things around, stat. Hope all of you are doing great!
