New Day

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!

  1. you have alot more figured out than you realize right now....emotional and physical are so closely interconnected. don't forget how far you have come. you are human, allow yourself to make mistakes. put them in the past and do not dwell. enjoy the present.
    avoid self help books and others that "claim" they know how YOUR mind works.they only give people head aches (for lack of a more articulate choice of words.)
    you are a beautiful person, there are no books that can teach you how to love yourself. keep on truckin', you are doing great!!!! hugs to you.
