This past week has been horrible with stress and emotion. As a result, I haven't been tracking my food, I've been letting myself indulge, I've not been exercising and my mood is continuing to drop. It is amazing how quickly my mood can get on a downward spiral if I stop exercising and stop eating well.
Last Thursday my brother's dog was killed by a car (my mother's car no less), so the family has been absolutely heartbroken. This dog was everything to my brother, like a nephew to me and like a grandson to my parents. I immediately went into emotional eating mode....I wasn't as horrible as I could have been, but I wasn't good. When I start eating bad, I stop tracking, when I stop tracking, I lose focus completely. I stopped exercising, I continued to eat badly and I have felt so depressed and down on myself the last few days. I have been harsh with my children, angry toward my husband.
I got up this morning, I had a great workout and so far I've eaten moderately well (not ideal, but ok) and I have planned out my meals for the day.
Hopefully this will kick me back into gear. I don't want to be down in the dumps and I want to keep my downward spiral related to my WEIGHT, not my MOOD. :)
