struggling this week

Friday, February 19, 2010

I'm struggling this week, but I know that I'm about a week away from "that time of the month" so it's not surprising. When my period roles around, not only is it more difficult to modulate my emotions but it's also hard curb the emotional eating that goes along with it.

I do quite well for most of the day but then the evening rolls around and I can't get my hands on enough food! Whats worse are the nights I work. My job is high stress (I'm a nurse) and I'm going through a rough patch where I'm feeling burned out anyway so my eating around work issues has been bad.

So moving forward, what to do? Well I exercised yesterday. I'm going to toss all the sugar left over from my birthday party and remember that it's persistence that pays off. I won't give up, even if I've slipped up, because this journey is not going to happen overnight!
