Recognizing old patterns...

Monday, January 21, 2013

It happens every now and again. Allowing the free for all eat whatever. Plunging into the binge of more, more, more. Anger, guilt, shame, blame! PMS emotional eating...

What have I learned? Maybe to recognize what is happening. Acknowledging that it is my problem.

And I so do not want to slip back to the old ways because with it comes more depression and weight gain. Or is it weight gain then depression? I admit to myself that I am have some very personal internal struggles that could lead to depressive symptoms but I want to do whatever I physically can to fight this.

Eating right and continuing with exercise are the first steps.

My exercise has been very consistent with some change ups that may not be pushing quite as hard but it is still moderate regular exercise.

The eating however has been spontaneous and emotional so that's what I will work on this week. Planning and staying within cals.

Strange how things cycle - i can drink all my water without a problem for days and days even craving it being thirsty and then one day I just don't want it!

This week I will get the water in.

So here's to recovery...
