remembering old times

Friday, April 24, 2009

I went over my calorie range today by 400 (so easy to do) for a number of reasons. I rationalised that I was physiologically hungry and purposely looked for good fats to balance out my nutrition tracker as I am usually always under this as I choose low fat foods and soy milk. I have been exercising quite heavily and the fitness tracker says that I need to adjust my calories but I am so scared to do that (except for tonight) when I knowingly gave in to overeating because of anxiety, tiredness and rationalised hunger. The overeating incident bought all those memories back of past times (many, many, many) Why would I choose an action to bring all that back, HOWEVER all it not lost. I am now back on SP (I had lost the internet connection for most of the day - quite worrying for me- needed for my sanity and my at home work. I will not dwell on this lapse today. I have stopped eating for the day and am soon to go for a 40 minute run. Soon to start a new challenging gym programme. The instructor said that many of the activities are what sports teams do. That was encouraging, so I am looking forward to starting it and trying not to worry about fitting it in with extra work and study demands I have at the moment. Any one else have good tips about balance in your life. I spend a lot of time on SP to the cost of other things. Priorities......mmmm.

    I love your back ground... the peppers are beautiful.... You are right to have a good attitude.. What you did is a natural thing... just because you have given up a habit, doesn't mean that it can't come back at the most emotionally draining and exhausting times.. that is when we must find things to do besides food... It sounds like the gym class you will be doing will get you in shape, and your body does need food to fuel the workouts, so if SP says you need to up your calorie intake then you do...Have a good weekend and keep up the great attitude you have... emoticon
