So today is a new day. I woke up feeling a bit better than last night. I am still a little frustrated with the whole emotional eating thing. I thought I was doing much better than I am. I am going to look into some books to read on the subject so if you have any suggestions on a good one, please let me know. I really want to get to the bottom of this and to learn some other ways of dealing with emotional stress/tiredness. I really need to break the connection between my emotions and food.
I slept in until about 9:30 and then I got ready to go to the gym. I was dragging my butt a bit but not quite like last night. My workout was good, by normal standards, but it was not the usual kick a$$ workout that I would usually have. I was able to do some thinking about emotional eating while doing my cardio and hopefully I have discovered a few things.
I was thinking how I let myself get to the state that I was in and I thought that I should just avoid situations that will put me in that state and then I will not have to deal with the issue of emotional eating. But realistically you can't avoid emotional stress and tiredness all your life so I really have to get to the bottom of it and learn how to deal with it in a different way. Now I just have to figure out how to do that!
In order to reach my full potential and get to my goal I really need to conquer this. Today, I have found a new determination to beat this thing and get to where I want to be. I think I have the physical part figured out, but the emotional/mental part seems to be the part that is holding me back. Well, I am going to put a stop to that.
I want to feel Sexy, Smart and Strong both physically and mentally and I am not going to stop until I accomplish just that!
