I've never been good at keeping diaries, so I'm not surprised that it's been almost a year since I blogged. Oops! Oh well, there's no use in dwelling on the past.
I've been commenting on some blog entries, and while doing so, I decided that I am going to use exercise to fight stress. I am usually stressed, it's in my nature. I stress out over everything. Even when I shouldn't be stressed, I am. So, instead of letting it eat at me, I'm going to work it out. That way, I get in my exercise and feel good afterward for letting go of the stress. I know it works, because I've done it before. When I used to get really mad, I would work out and do some kickboxing.
I hope I can keep this up. I'm having a really hard time keeping myself motivated to work out. I'm not really having a problem with the food part of being healthy, but I just really hate exercise! I'd much rather be reading or watching TV. I actually used to bring a book to the gym, and I'd read while I was cycling. The problem with that was, I'd get lost in the book and realize I wasn't moving that fast. :)
Also, I totally blew the healthy eating. We went out to eat at a butcher shop that does dinner on certain nights, and I had planned to get a sirloin, but they didn't have any! So, I got the chicken special, which was full of cheese and ham. It was also HALF OF MY PLATE! So, I ate 1/4 of it, about 1/4 of the mashed potatoes and some of the veggies, and then I was completely full. We're going to eat it tonight, two of us, for dinner. Either that or he'll eat that, and I'll eat a Lean Cuisine. I'm not sure yet. It wouldn't have been so bad, if I didn't get the dessert afterward. Ooooohhhh...how I regretted it this morning when I felt really really sick.
Anyway...I'm welcoming myself back to the blog. Today's goal...drink some water!
