January 2015 Challenge --- Day 1---Stress Eating.

Monday, January 05, 2015

My jet lag has mostly passed, my sugar cravings have too, mostly. My husband is gung-ho to start. I set up my goal board and have reviewed spark exercise videos.

Yesterday the family came over for our post Gramma/Grandpa's vacation Christmas. The house was filled with holiday candy, doughnut snowman, candy stuffed pancakes, and one big heavy caramel apple pie. I didn't have any. I had the veggie plate, cheese and protein. I was proud- I've already lost 3 pounds!

Spending almost a full week on travel recovery seemed to have proved warranted.

Potential challenges: My tripod dog hurt his front and only forward leg, so husband and I need to carry this 85 pound dog around the house. Too heavy for both of us. Will listen to vet's advise today but this dog is a very problematic in many ways and we both know the potential cost (emotional and financial) if this is anything more than a sprain. Stress.

Our home business causes very high stress. Our project manager screwed a lot up while we were away. Our sales guy didn't close any sales and focused on family all month. Stress

Husband and I are stress eaters

    It sounds like you have your hands full. But having a supportive family around, and it sounds like you do, is half the battle. Good job on passing up the sweets. I'm back in my regime this Monday morning. I just have to get back to the gym. I have not been there since August. I pay, I need to get back in the game. :-)

    I read somewhere that putting a bath towel or just fabric in a loop under the dog's stomach/chest will help you to support his weight and he can help to move around. Maybe you are already doing that.
    Good job on resisting all those goodies! It will be hard working at home with temptation a short walk away to the kitchen! Wow! You need one of those walking desks, where you have a treadmill with a platform for your laptop, or at least just stand up to a desk that has computer, phone, etc. on it.
    Then sitting down again would feel like a break, instead of going to the kitchen!
    Good luck, check in again soon!
