Do or do not

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Yes I'm starting off the day with yoda quotes. I've had my coffee and oatmeal, now I need to make some time with Jillian Michaels. I did well yesterday. No overeating. I weighed myself today to get an accurate startling point for feb. I was expecting 180 after my past few days of bingeing. 178 instead. Not bad, not good, it's just a fact. So my goal for February is simply to get out of the 170s. Possible. I tend to get stuck in the 170s for some reason. But I'm going to do this. End of feb, 168. That's the goal. I was on the right track, I don't know why I got derailed this week. I'm trying to think of what happened that stressed me out.

I had a slight argument/debate with someone on facebook. That same night I ordered takeout. Am I really that sensitive that an argument could trigger a binge? When did I start relying on food as a source of happiness? It wasn't even happiness. It was distraction. I've got to work on that. If emotions are what's standing in my way I have to pick a different coping mechanism. At least I didn't go for alcohol.

Do or do not, there is no try.

    i never get involved with online debates. some people go out of their way just to make everyone else feel like dirt but don't offer any insight. i started doing yoga, journaling, kickboxing or listen to fun songs that will cheer me up.

    I agree that food calories are healthier than alcohol calories. You can DO THIS !
