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!
