What am I doing???

Thursday, June 03, 2010

So in April I made it to 100 pounds lost and since then I have just slacked off. By no means am I even close to being done. But my eating habbits are creaping back up again, I control myself for this meal but the next one I get way out of control and then just say screw. My stress eating, which I thought I had under control has totally resorted to old habits again.

I am running a 5k on Saturday and I chose to stay in bed this morning and not run, knowing that I won't do anything tomorrow since it's the day before the race.

I feel like I am totallly sabotaging myself. I have to get back on track. Why does this happen? Is this something that I am going to have to fight forever? What is my problem? I ahve to regain control of this. I still exercise. It is a new lifestyle for me. But why have I lost control of my eating habits AGAIN?

    Keep at it, I have always said we(nurses) are like dinasours, we don't like change.
    I first said that when changes were happening in my work. I now realize that it takes place in my personal life as well.
    Keep up the running, and try to get back on the wagon and get your eating under control. Find out what would make you want to eat healthy again. I know that trying new healthy recipes always makes it more exciting to eat healthy.
    Good luck on your race.

    And I would say to you when is beating up on yourself ever worked? Is that too, part of old habits.

    It takes more then a moment to put new fresh practices into full use. I remember reading that you really never "lose" old habits as that groove is literally part of the brain, but the more you put new practice into place in time they in essence become more dominant then the old.

    Weigh to grow in accomplishing your goals.

    And weigh to glow you are running the 5K.

    Keep working on the new groovy thing!w

    You are already working to gain back control. Otherwise, you wouldn't have taken the time to write in your journal. The day is still young. Take a long walk now, or at lunch, or tonight when you get home.

    Know that every meal will be a challenge. But you can choose how big of a challenge it will be. Every time you are successful - and I mean every time - you have to acknowledge it. Be proud of yourself. You have done amazing! And you are not done yet.

    Your story is inspiring. You are a phenomenal woman.
    Take care

    We sometimes lose sight of where we really want to be, and settle for something less, when we could have had the real thing. Sometimes we do what we have to do instead of doing what we love to do. So look at your attitude towards what you are doing and bring love back into your life. Love will accompany you all the way to eternity. may God Bl;ess You and Everyone, Vic, Team Leader of SP "God's Family".
