What am I doing?

Monday, April 26, 2010

The Bible says: For I do not understand my own actions [I am baffled, bewildered]. I do not practice or accomplish what I wish, but I do the very thing that I loathe [[b]which my moral instinct condemns]. (Amplified Bible, Romans 7:15)

This so sums up how I feel right now. Since the beginning of March, I have floundered and sunk. I was stressed out because of a flight I had to take to Texas to see my parents, and while in Texas my dad had a series of seizures which put him in the hospital. Ever since then, my eating has been horrible and my exercise has gone by the wayside.

Why oh why do I do this to myself? It seems that I get going on a good streak and then I hit a snag and fall totally by the wayside. I do that which I don't wish to do.

I am determined to get back on track, I know I can do this and if I want to compete in the Indoor Triathlon this November I MUST get back on track and get my rear end in gear.

Perhaps I should take the motto of the Little Train that Could.... I think I can, I think I can, I think I can....

Oh dear Lord, Help Me!!!

    I've been there too. Went back to my home country just as I was making inroads into my weight loss and what did I do but go off the programme. Thankfully I didn't put back all the weight but I know how frustrated you must feel. What helped me was going to exercise classes and tracking my eating plus doing the exercises on here though I may not have tracked them.
    Believe me you will get there stress or no stress. You will do it! If you really want to you will do it!

    I have done that too..everything is okay for a while and then something bad happens that sets me back. It's an issue, but not going to do this again. Sorry about your dad.

    You have to train your brain to turn to other comforts other than food. I am working on that also.
