Down, but not out

Friday, February 28, 2014

I started working downtown. It's a consulting job that may turn into a permanent job. I absolutely love the work. However, the commute is rough. I get up between 4:30 and 5:00 in the morning. I get home around 6:30pm.

I started eating a ton of fast food, and I've gained back most of the weight I've lost. I've been really sore too. My back hurts, and I definitely have plantar fasciitis. I keep getting frustrated because of the pain. I try to eat better, but I have always dealt with pain by eating junk food.

I want a new habit. Since I'm in so much pain, I deserve to feel better. I don't deserve junk food. That makes me feel good for a few seconds. I deserve healthy pampering that helps me get stronger.

It's time to get serious.

    You can do this, Lori! One choice at a time.

    I'm finding that home-made potato chips (sliced potatoes, baked, without oil) and fruit satisfy my crunchy and sweet cravings. I like knowing exactly what I'm eating! (And knowing it's healthier than the alternative)

    Find a new hobby or read a good book to escape from the junk food. Pamper yourself with a hot bath complete with bubbles and candles and aroma. Try a new manicure or hair do. You can get beyond the junk food.

    I'm glad you've got a new job you like, even though it's led to the return of some habits you don't want to keep. And the pain makes it tougher. I love how strong you sound through it all though, and it's great to see a new blog from you. I always appreciate your perspective and learn from what you have to say. We can do this, Lori.
