Fattening Family Dinners, Stress, and Falling Off the Wagon

Sunday, January 27, 2013

What a day. Yesterday I didn't exercise, so, despite still being depressed, I made myself exercise for half an hour today. Still, it was better than nothing. Like my water - only five glasses, but that's better than zero. I need to stop letting my emotions dictate what I do. I ate waayy too much. It didn't help that it was Sunday (which at my house means family dinner). Does anyone else have this problem? My family won't let me cook dinner (they don't like healthy foods on Sundays) and get insulted if I don't eat what is made. Unfortunately, what they make is usually heaping helpings of pasta. Gonna have to get creative as to how to eat healthy while making sure I don't insult anyone. I'm too depressed. I wanted a cigarette, ate too much, and barely got through one half hour of exercise (I usually do at least an hour, happily). Need to get these emotions under control. Well, goodnight.

    Thanks. That's great advice. Today was not my best either, but tomorrow I'm determined to do VERY well.

    Yep start the next day fresh. An option is to start weeding the unhealthy out of your home. They can't cook heaping piles of pasta if they can't find the pasta Or have a measured amount out for them. Everything in moderation. My Chicken Alfredo was fantastic on Saturday but when we went to get seconds it was all gone because the amount of noodles I used was the correct serving for a family of 4.

    Keep your head up girl.

    We all can have our bad days, but just keep positive and know things will work out for the better if you keep with it!
