So, for the past two weeks, I have been finding any excuse and every excuse to binge eat, to not exercise, and to just be lazy. I have recognized this and identified it as falling back into comfortable old patterns because other aspects of my life have gotten very stressful.
Some of the stress I have been feeling is from work, my rental property, and now noticing the side effects of not taking care of myself.
I have lost sight of what is important. My Health. Without my good health, I have nothing. I have no energy, I have no ambition, I have no motivation and I feel like a huge pile of crap. I am bloated (which is not helpful when you are already overweight), my clothes are fitting tighter, and I am MISERABLE.
I have found that not going to my workouts consistently like I have been over the past 6+ months has caused me to feel the actual side effects of stress and falling back into these old patterns of binge eating for comfort and to ‘forget’ my problems for a bit. This doesn’t work.
It’s time to get back on the right road, the right path, the healthy route.
To start off I am doing the following which are things that I developed into (aside from the last 2 weeks):
1. Batch cooking for lunches to take to work for the week and planning breakfast, snacks, and suppers.
2. Planning and tracking my workouts.
3. Tracking water and food intake.
For the next month, I will make these 3 things the priority as they will keep me mindful of what is important. Each day I will try to commit to blogging about my day to see if I can track any problems.
Sometimes the journey sucks and you have to step back and look at the map to see where you got off track. Then, map a better route.
Happy Sunday Spark Friends! xoxo
