Conquer Stress Eating - As a New LifeStyle Resonse.

Saturday, October 15, 2016

I have to blog to remind myself why I am ticked at myself for .6 lb weight gain!!

It wasn't the ThanksGiving Dinner, it was Pizza last night after caring for Sweet GrandAngle who developed a fever. Stress Eating Trigger to conquer. I could have stopped at 2 small slices, instead opted for 5. I ate the Salad, and walked for 2.5 hours. But it wasn't enough to combat my poor dinner choices.
Also, I didn't get to take my 3.5 mile walk today before weighing in, as we needed to care for our GrandAngle. So when she fell asleep, I took off for my walk. This is HUGE, for me. Because on the weekend if I do need to help with the kids, I never get my exercise in.
I held DH to task, as he made it back from the gym, and showered, and napped on couch!! LOL, so the minute she fell asleep and he woke up, I went off like a shot!! LOL
Perfect, as I feel great. Even though I am dissapointed at my weight gain.
It just reinforces which LifeStyle changes I need to make.
Stress Eating Trigger is what I need to conquer, and shows how I deal with stress.
Use new techniques when under duress, and not rely on flying by the seat of my pants as in the past!!
Have a great week everyone!! Thank you for checking in and stopping by.
Good luck to all, in all the challenges you face this week.

    It good that you recognize what it is and how to plan for dealing with the stress. Could you talk the little angel out for a walk or something?

    Dang that pizza! Always hits me too, no matter how healthy I make it at home...those 2 slices always expand...good for you for getting your movement in...

    I'm trying to fill up on H20 whenever stress hits instead of food, as well after dinner until 8 pm. Why not give that a try!

    Recognizing the stress is causing the problem and coming up with a plan so it doesn't happen again is awesome. You can do this. BTW... pizza is my downfall also.... with or without the stress.
