Fighting a Funk

Monday, June 17, 2013

Got a couple things bugging me. emoticon Meh. That's life. I can tell that the old "I want to eat" reflex is still embedded within. I've had to fight with it this evening. I'm just waiting it out. I've eaten in range and recorded everything. I'm at the end of my I'm done eating for today. It REALLY helps having the tracker to tell me I'm done eating. My mind is not telling me's screaming to eat...nope...not doing it.

The scale was nice this morning. I'm down a little more...193.6...I was really surprised and happy about that. One of my co-workers went walking with me at lunchtime today so that was cool.

I'm enjoying my shows on ABC family this evening...they're helping me to get through my funk. I'm glad I walked after work with Mia. I didn't want to...I wanted to just sit and veg out...but I didn't want to cheat Mia out of her walk. So, I went for her...but I found I really liked it. Then, supper was delicious.

This too shall pass. It's another one of those times where it's really important for me to stay on that I can see that I matter how I feel or what is going on around me...going off plan is not the solution...pushing through it all is. You know what they say...when you going through hell...keep going!

Hope you all had a good Monday! Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on!

    emoticon with your tracking & exercise!!! It's so tough to make yourself do those things when you just don't feel like it.

I just got out of one of those 'funks' that lasted about 10 days. For me, it's important I stick to my routine. I can handle one, maybe two, blips at a time. Too many more, and I start to slide.
so I have to find some time every day to squeeze in my workout. I have to make sure that I choose the healthiest food options available in those social settings (I try my best to keep a protein bar or an apple with me all the time to get me thru). I have to start my day with my motivational reading.

hope things level out for you soon. In the mean time, keep taking those steps forward.

    don't give up! you know , at some point fighting the need for deserts was easier if I thought in cardio terms. like this cake is 30 minutes of jogging , do I really want to eat it? the answer was usually no. and if I said yes and ate it I made sure to do the cardio to " neutralize " it

    I was going to tell you to go for a walk, but you already did that. Try drinking a big glass of water and if it gets really bad, go for a short walk to the corner and back several times.

I have been craving chocolate all day, but have refused to go to the vending machine.

Hang tough emoticon emoticon
