Bleh Bleh Bleh

I sit here feeling like a total blob. The last few weeks, eh actually months have been a roller coaster when it comes to my diet and exercise. I feel like I have said, "I'll start tomorrow" a hundred times. I will do OK for a few days and then something happens that causes me to throw in the towel. Life is coming at me hard and although I've made progress, I still haven't conquered my emotional eating. When I feel stress my thoughts of food are magnified 1000%. I have found ways to cope with this but with all that has been going on lately, it has become harder to manage.

Part of what's made it so difficult is living with the ILs. There is just so much more food at my fingertips then when we lived on our own. I'm not blaming them at all and I know I am 100% responsible for what I put in my mouth. It's just so much easier to grab a cookie or piece of candy that wouldn't even exist in our own home. My ILs are frequent entertainers so even though the food that is consistently around isn't that bad, it's the treats and leftovers that kill me.

So on Sunday, I once again decided that I was going to be back in control. Yesterday I did well and even went to the gym. I am sore as a mofo today but I feel good. Just gotta take it one day at a time.


you are preaching to the choir. :/
