August 12th - Day 11
Tuesday, August 13, 2013
Ooops - labeled my last blog entry wrong - it should have been days 9-11.
Anyways, yesterday I think I fell the entire way off the bandwagon. I have recognized that the past week I have been "emotional eating" like crazy... and the scale shows it.
Yesterday I did have some victories (like skipping the pizza at my school function and skipping going out to eat after the school function) but when I got home - admittedly I still didnt eat the best food that I could have.
Everything seems to be irritating me lately. I buy healthy food (like salad and veggies) and a day later it is moldy and rotting in my fridge (thanks, Wal Mart)... But where else should I buy good healthy food? Nowhere around where I am sells GOOOD produce - except for the farmer's market - and I would LOVE to buy my veggies there - but realistically - who can afford $3/tomato?? Not me... I guess in the end at least I wouldnt be wasting the food because it wouldnt rot like the Wal Mart stuff does... but still cannot really afford it.
So the scale hasnt been my friend - neither has my moods - but today I am trying to force myself back into the right frame of mind. I read something today that I really liked in regards to emotional eating:
"Do you want the food you have been craving for an hour, or the body you have been craving your whole life." What a great way to put it into perspective!!!
I have a work function tonight but I plan to go home and definitely get in some exercise. I need to be getting more sleep too, but I'll have to take that one step at a time - because there just is not enough time in the day to get everything done. More updates tomorrow on how today went... I plan to stick to my calorie ranges from now on (and so far so good for today).
Fingers crossed. I want this bad enough that I really think I can do it if I put my mind to it.
