Eating my feeelings

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

So I have been so blessed to have gotten away so much these past couple months but now I can not seem to get back into good habits that I did so well at this summer. I am trying to figure it out.
Am I feeling lonely? Is it because it is cold and there is more darkness? Perhaps a combination of those things. It is times like these that I actually think having an 8-5 job would help me stay focused and have more balance. I love having the freedom of my real estate job most of the time, but right now it's a bit quiet and I need to get motivated to do things I should be doing.

I am generally a fairly positive person but right now I am positively eating myself right back up the scale!!!

Thanks for listening. Comments, "hugs" welcome emoticon

    I hope things have gotten better for you and you're doing better. The change in seasons, less sunlight does tend to affect us. Maybe you should dabble in needle point projects a little more? emoticon

    Nothing much I can add -- you've already started asking yourself the right questions. Just make one good choice at a time! I'm rooting for you!

    Sounds like you may have SAD. It's that time of the year. I'm going through it and am breaking out my SAD light. Increasing my vitamin D.

    I often wonder if the Autumn munchies come because we're trying to keep ourselves warm & awake!

    You've taken the first step -- you want to get back on track!

    I know that you can do this & am cheering you on!!!

    This is a tough time of year for me as well...it's probably not helpful, but I've dubbed these "the dark months"...with daylight savings slamming the door against light before or after work. I try to push myself toward doing things with others as I think good company is our best defense!

    you know what they say fake it till you make it.why donĀ“t you make a plan as if you have a 9 to 5 job.sschedule you meals and snacks accordingly and also your workout times.keep to the schedule as much as you can and when a appointment re houses etc comes up on workout schedule times then move the workout either earlier or later in the same day.also sechedule a time or several times to do food prep for the week or days ahead so when the time is short you have something that can be heated up or prepared in a fraction of the time.remember where there is a will there is a way.you can do this.you have done it before and you can do it again. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I do believe the time change effect "motivation, mood, etc"... of course we can only let this be a road block for so long..... Keep on keeping on... you've got this!!

    I know this is trite, but envision yourself doing what needs to be done. To start is is pretend, but soon it will be reality.
