The emotional eating beast can be a struggle to defeat, but WE CAN DO THIS! We can encourage 1 another when the others are down and struggling. With encouragement it helps the others to realize that they CAN get past this! So come on ladies let's work together to defeat this ugly beast called "FOOD"!

Sometimes I get up and wait to eat for awhile & as a result my energy level is zapped. I have to remember to eat first thing and make sure that it is healthy. Since the middle of May my veggie intake has been very limited and with the my sweet intake has increased. I have to give up that sweet tooth before I fall off the wagon and end up right where I left off. Ladies we can do this!

I love food. A lot. I think "foodie" is a good descriptive word for me. I've always had an appreciate for eating good food and paying attention to how things affect my body. For me, bad habits started when I gave up vegetarianism when I was 21 or 22. I ended up quitting smoking about the same time and taking sedentary jobs. My body has never processed meats well, and the rapid succession of major lifestyle changes caused me to become obese. Over the last few years, I've endured the miracle (sarcasm) that is overtime and full time school. I became addicted to "fast" meals, packaged foods. Anything easy and fast was essential. I was too tired and strapped for time for anything else.

I've gone up and down since then. My job is mostly sedentary, but I try to walk around at least once an hour and take decent walks on breaks. I'm currently trying to transition back into pescatarian diet (that's vegetarian with an allowance for fish and eggs). I do very little diet because I don't like milk and cheese and I'm lactose intolerant towards those (but mostly ice cream). I try to choose more fresh foods. Fortunately, my boyfriend loves cooking and loves fresh food so I eat much more frequently in my own home. I've also added a lot more physical activity into my life and tried to swap say couch potato-ing for working in the garden (which is way more satisfying anyway).

For me, since I had gotten sick, I think I've actually neglected my body a bit. For the last several days I hadn't been working out, only exercise I had been getting was to go and get my son from school, I wasn't really TRYING hard enough to make myself do anything else.
And to top it off, I've been going crazy with eating chocolate, pizza, ice cream... lots of unhealthy foods. Hubby says it's ok, as long as it's in Moderation, that's what I've always said to everyone and to myself, but.... I've gone way overboard I think with the eating, I need to get it under control, especially if I wanna get fit, firm & fired up and looking HOT in a bikini in Hawaii! I think a lot of it has to do with being bored, stressed, worried. I hate moving and I hate going to dr's, I have to go to dr for a physical, the physical then has to be OK'd by the army, in order for me to be ABLE to move to Hawaii. UGH, I need not let it affect the way I eat and exercise. But I do, too much!
Yesterday, was the first day in a while that I've gotten down and done any workout. When I was finished, I felt GREAT! I need to work on UPPING the time. I am hoping to get in a good workout today... some Pilates and I am going to try and do my new dvd "THE SPARK FIT, FIRM & FIRED UP" that I ordered a few weeks ago from Spark.

I think I'm trying really hard to balance healthy foods and the foods I crave like chocolate, pizza, and sushi. Everything in moderation, right?

I have learned to incorporate a lot more fruits and vegetables into my diet and added lots more exercise, so when the occasional pizza or sushi night come up I've equipped my body for bouncing back from the additional calories I've consumed. At least I hope that's going on!

I'm still unsure, a little wobbly on my new healthy path, but I think I'm making good choices for the most part.

For chocolate, which every girl requires in her diet hehehe, I eat things like the Fiber One bars and when I need the 'real thing' I choose dark chocolate so I get all the benefits right along with the mood boost and rich chocolaty taste I crave. It works!

QUOTE - The belly comes before the soul.
- George Orwell, British writer

Q ARE YOU NEGLECTING YOUR BODY?

If you crave chocolate as much as Aunt Marge does, you know that nothing else could possibly come first. Her tastes aside, food can actually be more of a foundation than a passion. To have an enriching & healthy life, fitness is a must. Good eating can be part of that fitness springboard that makes bigger things possible. The next months and years are filled with hard work that takes energy and action. If you're starving your body, depriving it of what it needs, you're handicapping yourself in the race for your dreams. And if you're filling it with garbage, don't expect much in return. This all may seem obvious, but too many people sabotage themselves by ignoring that simple fact. For so long, we've been hearing so many bad things about different foods, it's almost as if food is our enemy, one that can kill us or ruin our lives. Truth is, food--good food--is the thing that makes everything else possible.
