why can i not stay on track lately?

Thursday, August 02, 2012

Lately, I have been doing horribly with food. I am still exercising about 3 days per week, but not eating as I should be. I have been under so much stress with school and kids and health that I just keep shoving food in my mouth for comfort. I have been stress eating, craving sugar, eating when I am not hungry, just shoveling food down my throat. I did almost an hour of cardio last night to try and make up for all the food I consumed yesterday. Yesterday was bad with food. Like BAD. So I know I probably would have had to do at least 2 hours of cardio to make up for all the crap I ate. Not junk so to speak, just over ate big time. I got to bed past 130am this morning, woke up past 9am, and I am BEAT today. The only weights that I did last night were abs... I was so tired by the time I was done with cardio that I wasn't up for doing full body 30 minute circuit training.

I did go grocery shopping last night, and FINALLY have some healthier options such as veggies and fruit. Food has been doing GREAT today. Water... eeeee not so much yet, I am working on it right now. 2 cups down, 8 to go emoticon

I need to think about my August goals. I will blog about them once I get them down on paper.

Me and my husband are going to New York City next weekend WITHOUT the kids, which I am TOTALLY excited about!! We haven't been anywhere alone since our honeymoon 11 years ago, so YES I AM EXCITED!! Only for the weekend but I don't care!! lol So.. I just made myself a coffee, and dinner is on its way to being prepared. Grilled chicken with grilled veggies =) MmMmMmMmM yummmm can't wait!!

    Hana, I'm feelin' ya! I went through 3 months of it. I just gave in to the carb and sugar cravings so bad that I gave up. Thankfully only temporarily and not long enough to completely nullify the entire 25 lbs I lost since January.

    I think we are going to have our ups and downs. I've been having them my entire life. I think if I didn't have any ups, I would weigh twice as much as I do. I sometimes say I have to diet and exercise to stay this size!!

    Hang in there will come back.

    Enjoy your trip. You totally deserve it emoticon

    i don't binge either, but i do overeat on healthy things , and less healthy things. i shoveled m&m's today. i ate too quickly and don't stop when sated. i wait for my body to feel full, but by then i am stuffed.

    Today was a lousy food day for me, as well...
    Not sure why it goes in cycles like that.
    Enjoy your trip, tomorrow is a new day!

    It all comes down to choices made - bottomline, we are in control of what we choose to put into our bodies!

    I wish you success in all choices made around food intake.

    God bless you!

    WOW that is late going to bed. OUCH. Not getting enough sleep could be affecting you too. I know harder said than done, try to get your sleep.

    NY, you are going to love it. MAN OH MAN 11 years that is a very long time. ENJOY IT!
