Random thought of the day

Tuesday, January 09, 2018

I've been clean eating all week, and I've been consistently going to the gym. The mood is not as glum. I need to think about why I punish myself with sugar when I am sad, in the guise of indulging. It's not so soothing. I know it's not my friend. I perpetuates my negative emotions. When I first lost weight, running or walking was my replacement behavior in stressful times. I can't do that at the moment (injury). I need to plan a new replacement behavior. Maybe journaling or texting a friend.... I am probably going to be dealing with pain for a few more months, so I need a better plan.

    Excellent awareness on your part ... "I need to think about why I punish myself with sugar when I am sad, in the guise of indulging."

    Is your body able to tolerate stretching? Would that help relax you?

    I've found anti-inflammatory foods/spices helpful with pain reduction. Leafy greens, turmeric with black pepper, etc.

    Maybe a go to basket with fun hobby things I made one as I have the same issue. Have a nice local drink and do something. Crossword book or sketching or something you’d love je to do just have it ready!

    I started a bullet point journal. Lots of ideas on Pinterest. It helps me!
