I am SO the suckage lately.

Saturday, July 25, 2009

I am absolutely not doing well - food-wise OR exercise-wise. I had to log in and blurt this out just to be accountable. It's like all I think about lately is the next thing I'm going to eat - and it's usually not long in between eating times. Gah. Maybe I'm hormonal or something - that's kinda what it feels like - that time of your period when you just can't stop eating and don't give a damn. I had a hysterectomy - so I don't have 'actual periods', but, I do still have my ovaries....

Anyway, just didn't want to lose touch completely with Sparkpeople, so it's easier to step back in when I'm ready to 'behave'. When I go away too long, it really makes it hard to come back so I figure this time I won't 'go away' - I'll just stick around anyway and let ya'll know what's going on.

If nothing else, I feel like when school starts and life starts to 'normalize' a little bit around this crazy house (even though I know there will be all kinds of school year obligations, too!) that maybe I can get on track then. I am hoping to do so sooner, but, if all else fails - I am pretty sure I'll be able to do it then.

    Thanks so much for your comment - I had the surgery about 13yrs ago. I totally said what I was trying to say in a confusing way. I meant - I guess I'm 'having a period' you know? Because my body does go through the cycles every month and I get weird. And I'm hoping that's all it is. Well, that and family goings on and stress, like you say.

    I'm not in a spot of willingness right now to eat right. ugh. My mind is still wanting to go there - so I'll do it - soon, I hope!!!!!!

    I love the idea of jumping with your grandson - that's cool.

    My kids are teens, but, they do love it when I play Dance Dance Revolution with them. maybe I can muster up enough willingness to do that with them.

    Oh - and we have band camp next week -that will get me busy, busy - so that will be good - probably lots of walking around too!

    I am glad you posted I had the same surgery as you many years ago!
    Yes the hormones play a big role but I am thinking maybe the stress hormone---coritsol is the culpret here. I'm guessing that you have kids and a hubby placing lots of demands on you and your time and you eat because of stress and lack of being able to control everything and the kids --I have been there and done that. Mine are grown now 24 and 28. And now I help with my gradson he is three.

    Start now with baby steps! Maybe the Sparks Guy 10 min workouts and you could make it a game and the kids could join in~~that's what I do with my grandson~~we jump together on his trampoline and I play with him in his swimming pool and chase him around the yard! We both get exercise and he laughs so much I can't help but to laugh to!

    Best wishes and good luck!
