Sick and Tired

Friday, November 15, 2013

I'm sick and tired of writing the same depressing entries, but I'm still stuck in a run and keep eating trigger foods and bingeing. I am really in need of some success again to put some wind in my sails. I guess I need to just incorporate small things each week and give myself a pat on the back each time I'm able to do one of those things.

I did run my 5k on Wednesday in 36:08. I do the Spartan Sprint tomorrow and I'm TERRIFIED. I just watched a video of all the obstacles, and I am so not prepared for all of that. I am just proud that I can run for over a mile now, but there is so much to this thing. I'm scared, but at least I have teammates and we chose to do the Biggest Loser version of the race, so we can pass obstacles if we want. I just don't want to! Oh well. Maybe next time I'll be fully prepared.

I want to go eat right now. It is a vicious cycle.

    Wow, I can't imagine taking on a challenging race when I wasn't feeling 100%. I hope it goes well and maybe gives you back a little bit of spark. emoticon

    Taking those small steps and celebrating the success after them will truly help build you back up. I know it's hard but remember that when you fall off you CAN get back up, dust yourself off and start over... Even if it feels like you've fallen off twenty million trillion times... Starting over is still the option!

    emoticon on running your 5k hun & good luck tomorrow! Remember to take everything in stride and celebrate the moment.

    In the moment can be the best time to find other ways to handle triggers. One of the easiest is delayed action...and make a game of it. If you want to eat/drink something that you've identified you need to watch or even too much of a good thing, drink a glass of water and give yourself permission to have it if you still want it after a certain period of time like 5 mins. Challenge: Do the challenge for a week and see how you do. If you can do 5 minutes before eating it, increase the time. Just as you mentioned, there's something about even small victories, they fuel the positive side of us to take the next step in the direction we want to go.

    I hope the Spring went well for you and your team... emoticon
