Sweet Tooth/Venting Blog

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

I'll admit it - I'm completely disappointed in myself right now. My motivation seems to have gone out the window lately and I don't know why. I'm stuck. Do I want to get to a "healthy weight"? Of course I do! Then why don't I "just do it"? I DON'T KNOW!! I will halfheartedly go through the motions of logging my food. I'll get through lunch and then when I get home, I just forget about it. I'll complete a couple of workouts a week, but nothing that is *really* doing my body any good.

And then there's my sweet tooth. I have no idea what's going on with me. I am craving sweets ALL THE TIME right now and it's driving me crazy. It seems like I'm in a vicious cycle:
I crave the sweets
I eat the sweets
I run out of steam because the sweets wear off
Repeat. ACK!

I *know* that they're horrible for me, but do you think that stops me?
I don't know.

But, maybe I do. My work situation is a little weird right now and I could be emotionally eating. For about 3 months starting in mid-March I'll be working 20 hours a week in one department and the other 20 hours in another. It's temporary and a really great opportunity for me and I'm actually really excited. The problem is that a co-worker is resistant because she is afraid all of my work will fall on her. This is not the case. I've worked it out so my work will be distributed to 2 other people for the 3 months I am gone. But still she complains and makes me feel like crap about it. Constantly. As the time draws near for me to leave there are comments made and her attitude towards me has changed. I know I shouldn't let it bother me, but it does. I'm human.

I guess I need to stop myself from feeling this way, but how? ARGH! I can't let my fitness get derailed by one person. I am better than that!

Just feeling down about the whole thing. Any suggestions??

    Talk to your co worker. I know if something like is happening to me the only way to not eat sugar when I get home is to deal with the person directly. It's really hard to do that but at least then you won't feel the need to hide from the possibility of conflict. Also, you then can put it behind you, you have done the right thing and tried resolution and can go forward with no regrets. Congratulations on the jobs well done.

    Arg! That is so frustrating that your co-worker is giving you such a hard time! It's really a difficult thing to not let the stress and anxiety of others affect us.
    At least you are aware of it, and that this opportunity will be GOOD for YOU, and that's all that *I* for one care about! haha:)
    I know you can do this girl, just put one foot in front of the other! Once you feel like you have your momentum back I know you'll be right back where you need to be to feel strong and get to where you want to be.
    You ARE strong.
    You WILL get there!
    YOU CAN DO IT!!! :D
