Eating Like Crazy/Exercise for Sanity
Friday, February 12, 2010
So this week, I've just been in an incredibly bad mood. Small things have made me feel just incredibly angry--luckily I've been realizing what's happening, and am trying to "check myself" before flying off the handle. Lots of stressful things are happening right now--new work responsibilities, and I'm going to meet with my parents next month to try to work through some really difficult relationship stuff that's been going on for a few years now. These things are probably what's been causing my craziness, as I would term it.
This week I've been pigging out--an example would be on Wednesday Night: I chose a sensible salmon fillet with green beans for dinner (YEAH!), and then I ate some of my gf's brie cheese fries, and then I went to the kitchen to get some hummus and pita, and then I went back again for two oatmeal cookies. I just felt hungry, and man! I was going to EAT!
The one thing that's kind of getting me through this week, and that I'm going to continue to be diligent about is exercise. I struggle with depression, and developing a solid exercise plan in the past few months has really allowed me to feel so much better and have a more positive outlook. So especially this week, I've made it a priority to workout every day.
President's Day weekend really snuck up on me (as in, I forgot about it until this morning!), but I'm grateful for the three day weekend. My goals for this weekend will be to workout everyday, start eating more sensibly, and to try to adjust my attitude. I'm a very lucky lady, who's got lots going for her, life isn't so bad.
