Losing for Me Journey - 4/19/17
Wednesday, April 19, 2017
I want to thank all of you for the words of encouragement. I was nervous about blogging but now I feel better about. I'm trying to be more transparent about my feelings to cope with my emotional eating. I was tested at work again today. It was an insane day at work after lunch. I have a vacation day tomorrow and it seemed like everything needed to be completed today. I raced around and went to meeting after meeting. I kept thinking about having some Pizza Hut for dinner. I live in northwest Indiana and where I am there are no good pizza places. I miss living in Chicago for that very reason. It's not hard to find a great pizza place in Chicago.
I am happy to say I got all the work done and did not order Pizza Hut. I ate the dinner I originally planned and it was yummy in my tummy. I also didn't feel the guilt I would have felt from eating a whole thin medium crust pizza from there.
I got all my work done and left work on time. I'm starting to feel like I'm accomplishing something. I felt tired when I got up early for physical therapy but I also felt encouraged. I was doing something to help myself. When I go walking I may not be able to move as fast but I'm making the effort. Small bits of fitness add up. My job is nuts but I'm not letting it bring me down.
This is not an easy journey but my confidence is growing that I can make my goals. That feels really good to say. Every day I'm making an effort to do the best I can. Be encouraged Spark Friends!
