12: Whole 30 Journey

Feeling much ore energized today, although I did sleep after work. I worked 3:30-9:10 this morning and I couldn't sleep much last night so that would explain the tiredness after work.

I had my chiropractic adjustment and electrotherapy this afternoon. Next week I should be getting new x-rays and scans to check the progress and see if I still have any sublaxations.

Tonight I am going to do a little research on ways to deal with emotions other than turning to food. I bought a book on Amazon about meditations to try that out. I want to see what I can do to be proactive about lessening the impact of my depression.

I stayed on track today with food. Still needs some tweaking as you all have seen from previous blogs but I am educating myself more each day.

Hubby has had so many treats lately, and while it bothers me at the same time it doesn't. I get excited by the fact that if I keep working at it I can eventually weigh less than him! Those curly fries may smell delicious but they have nothing on me!!

One of the funny things about this journey is how much of a difference in smell I have now. Sometimes when I get a craving I will take a moment to smell it and tell myself that I am stronger than whatever that particular food is I "want". Today at work I came across some scented candle melts and one of them was red velvet cake. I am pretty sure I spent a good couple of minutes smelling the box because it smelled fantastic. Don't worry no red velvet cake in the house and no plans on cheating over here. emoticon

    emoticon Depression can definitely get you off track, foodwise. I try to exercise to get me moving and out of the bleak mood I'm in. Mind you it is harder to do than picking up a bag of dorito, but afterwards you feel so much better. emoticon
