Getting back on track

Wednesday, September 25, 2019

I have been struggling for a few weeks now, every day I wake up with determination that I will be successful, then I eat my emotions or make an excuse not to exercise or why I did this or that. Well, today I truly woke up feeling more motivated than i have in weeks. Im ready to get back on track 100%!

The last couple days, I wasnt feeling well, I had bad stomach cramps and I really think part or all of it is because of how I have been eating. Im sick of feeling that way. Im sick of feeling bloated and the stomach pains. Im ready to eat healthier and feel better! This is my motivation to eat healthier!

While I have been active, and doing some exercise, I havent been exercising at the intensity and duration that I was a month ago. Ive noticed in the last week, I dont have as much energy. I believe if I start being more active, I will gain more energy. Also, I have been really emotional and full of anxiety, well Im done using food to cope with all of this, and Im done eating out of boredom. Im going to use exercise to deal with the emotions, the anxiety and to gain more energy. I know if I can get my exercise completely back on track, my nutrition will also improve! This is my motivation to exercise!

My water has been good. But as the cooler weather comes, its something I do struggle with. But I love hot tea so thats a great way to get water!

I know in order to succeed, I need to deal with whats going on in my mind. I have been journaling in a notebook several times a week. I talked to my husband as much as I could about whats been going on with me. I have been staying off facebook, instagram, etc for the most part. Facebook is the worse, and I rarely have been on it. I like instagram, but Im not on it alot. Staying off facebook has been a tremendous help. As for the loneliness, I have been dealing with- I havent quite figured that out yet, but Im doing better with dealing with it. I love the fall and love taking pictures, so im going to get outside and take pictures, especially once the leaves start changing.

I know i can do this! Its times to put the last few weeks behind me and get back to my healthy lifestyle!

    I'm with you! It's time for me to clean up my act also and start moving more, exercising consistently and eating better. That's why I like being a Firecracker. We're all here to support each other. And I want to get out and take some pics this Fall too! We could go together if you lived in NH:-) Anyway, I know you will get back on track. You did really AWESOME in the last challenge:-) emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am doing similarly. It's past time to get back on track, but I signed on to be an EL for a 5% Challenge team since I think having to be responsible will force me to do what I should have been doing all along.

    Writing this blog is the first step in making a positive change. Journaling is another great way to release your thoughts on to paper. I do it all the time. You can do this. Your Spark Friends are right here cheering you on.

    It is so true that moving more and eating healthier will improve your emotional state. So glad you woke up feeling motivated today! emoticon emoticon I’ve been really sad lately, and last week i started back journaling each day and it’s really helped me. Do you meditate? That might help calm your mind if you do it right before bed or first thing in the morning...really any time if you start feeling anxious or down. Getting outside to take pictures in the beautiful fall weather sounds great, too! Happy Fall! emoticon emoticon

    I also lack in exercise and love the desserts at work although they are proportioned small. I’m an emotional eater. And have no energy. I’m glad you got an aha moment. Would love to see some of your pictures

    You can do it! I too have been off track partly due to celebrating my anniversary and partly due to bad health news from my brother. I am looking forward to the Fall 5% challenge to kick me into more exercise and healthier eating.

    As for water in the winter months I will drink plain hot water (tea without the tea - lol) as a way to up my water intake during the colder winter months. Some times if I have it I will float a slice of lemon on it.
