Food and mood

Sunday, June 29, 2014

When I look back over my past year, I start to realize how often I used food to try to alter my mood. Wanted to feel more creative??? eat something Feeling sad???? have a little treat Even happy & euphoric could lead to overeating (who doesn't like a good party) in my book!

So, if I want to "feel better", the best solution is to put healthy stuff in my body & then move my body around. It's just that simple . . .

I need to break myself of the excuse "I'm too tired to exercise." Actually, I'm too tired NOT to exercise; I owe it to myself to generate some energy & endorphins.

I'm waiting for the day when I can say that I'm addicted to kale . . .

    You'll get there! Every second you have the ability to work toward creative new habits and each time you practice a new skill/habit you'll get more used to it. I know in my experience it gets "easy" to eat healthy and exercise when I'm doing it regularly...but once I let myself slip, it's all too easy to re-establish bad patterns.

    So if you keep changing your thoughts and reminding yourself that exercise and healthy food are what you need and want your behaviors and feelings will start to sync up. You've got this! =)

    'I'm addicted to kale..." Yeah, I don't think that will ever be my problem, LOL. Totally get the food and mood thing though, it works that way for me--whether sad or glad, unfortunately. Love the picture--how true!
