*Still* learning and improving

Saturday, June 01, 2013

Seems that daily stress has gotten the best of me these past two weeks or so. It's always SO much harder to stay on track when I get stressed out or sick. Over my weekend I had a pretty severe migraine attack that led to me not eating for a whole day. The next day I still didn't feel right and I opted for fast food instead of cooking the healthy food that was in the fridge! That really was a bad decision since it lead not only to more bad food choices but also a fridge full of expired veggies! emoticon

So I lost some broccoli and a head of romaine; I chucked it out yesterday and resolved to follow through with my healthy dinner plans for the rest of the week. On the bright side. . . I didn't have a total bingey melt down as I have in the past. While I did make a few poor decisions, I could still hear that little voice chime in and remind me not to go too overboard! -- I call it my food conscience -- You know, the voice that says "Have some salad with that!" or "Maybe you don't need to eat the ENTIRE pizza!?"

Exercise on the other hand. . . Took kind of a nose dive. Once the rain started I got out my medicine ball, my giant fitness ball (that I've never used!) and yoga mat. I had the best intentions; I wasn't going to let the yucky weather stop me! But day after day I would just sit and watch TV while my work out equipment just sat there mocking me. Lol.

Oh well! The sun is back and I'm going to try to utilize it while it sticks around and do my best to keep going even if it doesn't. emoticon

    Good luck on working towards your goals! Great job using what you have to get some exercise in indoors when you couldn't go out! Keep up the great work.
