GRRRRRR!!!!!! I am feeling extremely frustrated... I'm sure its the way I am looking at things. I guess If I had a more positive outlook I would have better results...maybe I need to stop feeling sorry for myself and just suck it up and keep moving. sometimes it just feelings like "things" get in my way of being healthy or fit. or thats they way I perceive it..... first I get injured and I get scared to do anything to aggravate my injury... then we had to deal with custody issues with my husbands ex that put us through hell emotionally and financially. then my husband got injured and I had to take care of him. and now he lost his job. I always put everyones needs before mine I "tend" to everyone else and then there is no time for me...... I have to wonder if i subconciously do it on purpose to sabotage myself..........
my injury is healing....so why havent i jumped back into exercise full force.......
why do I keep stress eating when all it does is make me feel worse.......
why do I continue to put myself last.........
its a vicious cycle...I see that I am doing it...I realize that im doing it..... so why cant I change it????????????

I can definitely relate to trying to medicate my emotions with foods during stress. My body tends to speed, so I actually try to slow it down. first I start with high carbs or starches, then after a while cause that makes your blood sugar drop, then I grab for sugar. Not good cause this make you put on a quick 20 pounds in less than 3 weeks. You need to do things that stabilize you emotions. Try meditation, say um real slowly, while your shut your eyes.
Or you could try walking or marching in play. I never was a exerciser during stress. A warm bath when you feel stressed. Something to relax your self , like play a nice dvd. Don't eat none nutrient food, and not cook. Cause how you eat during stress determines if you will get sick or have disease. Binding sets you up for a lot more than just gaining weight. You clog your arteries, and set your self up for stroke, high blood pressure & diebetic, and a heart condition. Just sit in the dark and pray, but keep calm, and believe that things will be ok, cause God is in control, and receive. hope this helped you. eva

I understand the feeling.
I have even been in wading in similar waters~
Still we can do this 1 bite at a time.

Hang in there. Times like these make it really difficult to stay motivated, but even small steps toward your goal are better than nothing at all!

When I have times like these, I go back to the basics: 10 minutes a day of exercise. Everyone has 10 minutes, right? Persistence... not perfection. Perfection is not what you are trying to achieve! My therapist also taught me that the pity party is ourselves giving in to those negative thoughts... poor me... NO! Embrace the good in your life! Before you know it, this will be a time you look back on and find things you learned about yourself during this difficult time. You hang in there! You've got this!

Sometimes we can be there for others but fail to see the need in ourselves. I'm guilty as charged!
I think you've made a huge step in acknowledging a) the problem b) how you feel and c) seeking help. Give yourself a huge pat on the back
Do you need to take some time just for you? If you can't afford a spa trip (I can't either these days) pour a hot bath, put on comfy pjs and browse through a magazine or start reading a book.
Then and only then, take a deep breath and decide on one teeny area of your life you can change.

There's a mixture here dear. When life happens it would be insane not to handle things as they confront us. So, you did right! Now your reaction to everything is something to deal with. Life isn't picking on you. Life is simply dealing you what it is dealing you right now. Yes, stop feeling like a victim here. You are simply being served sour lemonade right now.
So, still work out.
Still eat as good as you can.
View everything like a movie and do your best to simply look, listen and NOT react.
This too shall pass.
