Evaluating and Prioritizing

Saturday, December 12, 2020

This is not a boo hoo story. This is a story of a woman that has been trying with every fiber in her being to stay sane. I have had great success in losing some weight in the past 4 1/2 months. I am trying to not to emotionally eat and to keep up good habits but it happened this week. I gained.

I took a moment to contemplate. Why did you gain? I ate out of stress. My old habit that I have been trying to overcome. What ate at you? Worrying about family that I have no control over. I can't fix any of their issues and sometimes it is a heavy load.

I have been working out and watching what I have been eating but the past 9 days I ate my way through my stress and gained. Breathe. Look at you you caught yourself!

Making more good decisions that bad decisions always turns the scale around. I will do that.

Move more. I did not move as much this week because I had a colonoscopy and felt not good the day before and the day of and the next day. I feel better now. I am moving.

Forgive myself. Easy for many but I am not good at being kind to myself. Work in progress on that.

Prioritize myself. Started the Hard 75 challenge which I loved the first time because it made me make me a priority. I am on day 2. :)

I love myself enough to know that I am worth the effort.

    Even if you can avoid stress eating, the stress alone can up your #s. Been there. Done that. I have to take positive actions to reduce stress or I will gain. Oh well. Good to know.
