Life is funky...

Monday, May 17, 2010

This entry will be pretty short. I've been stressed as my dissertation and job situation hang in the balance. Add to that some side situations and I'm left wondering how in the world the scale is not creeping up as much as it did in my mind. I exercise when I can, which this week was M, T, W, and Th. In hindsight, thats not so bad. I did some crappy eating, okay a lot. I'm still capable of it. But the good part is, I finally got to a point where I could eat no more. Aren't you a a little relieved when you find that? I finally convinced myself that its time to write down every bite again for a while.. doing that when things get out of control helps me to stop. Anyhow, the real reason I wanted to write this blog is to share something I just wrote:

If you are full, move somewhere you can be hungry. The beginning of wisdom is understanding that what i know pales in comparison to what i have yet to learn.

So, this means something specific to me, and perhaps something completely different to you. I will close with this. No matter how much you (or I) mess up, maybe Monday through Sunday, if we want to learn from our lessons and continue this journey, a lot of good lies ahead.

    Good to see you stop by on SP. I'm sorry to hear you're stressed! It's a lot to deal with, but I'm glad you're getting in your workouts. emoticon
    I've been doing what you're doing--on days that I'm busy, if I'm too busy to plan anything healthy, I use the tracker so I can at least see how many calories I ate.
    Also, I like those 2 statements you wrote. Very insightful.

    Sad to see that you're stressed. A good, quick way to deal with that it to sit down, quietly for a few minutes breathing. Inhale through your nose to a count of 4, hold for 2, then exhale through your mouth for 4, then hold for 2, and repeat.

    And try not to get hung up on the fact you did some "crappy eating". You can take control again, you know it. Just take tomorrow as a new day, and try to do better. We shouldn't get hung up on every little mistake, thats a great way to fail.

    I don't know you, but you're here, so you're doing your best. And I believe that each and every one of us can succeed if we do our best
