Well. I’ve traveled to my birthplace and spent some much needed time with my family as we dealt with the loss of my uncle. I wasn’t strict with my eating, at all. To be honest I ate and drank whatever was around. I didn’t binge, but I didn’t choose my meals as I have been. For a split second I felt a little guilty for not being disciplined in my eating. Then I remembered that I really shouldn’t focus on that. I was dealing with a lot while trying to help my cousin deal as well. It was a very emotionally stressful time and sometimes not limiting choices helps the coping process (or at least it does in my head).
I’m back to reality and will not let that lackadaisical approach to my nutrition continue. Packed my lunch today, worked out this morning, and intend to do another T25 workout this evening just for good measure. Death is difficult to deal with, and it can be a catalyst to get you off track. I lost a little footing toward the end of last week, but I’ve regained it and I’m going to keep on trekking!
How do you cope with things that trigger your emotional eating?
Happy Tuesday Lovelies!
Well it is FRIDAY!!!! Yippee! Friday for me means DOUBLES DAY. I have been doing the Focus T25 workouts this week. Today is day 5, Friday, doubles day. Yup. I have to go home and do ANOTHER workout. This morning was Lower FOCUS. And boy oh boy, I need new legs. I am excited that tomorrow is a “day off”. I’m planning to go on a LONG walk through Great Dismal Swamp which is VERY close to my house. I’ll consider that active recovery and Sunday will actually be a rest day, WHEW a rest day. I haven’t had one of those in almost a month.
I started a #giveit100 challenge with myself. If you haven’t heard of Give It 100 (I hadn’t until a few days ago) it is a really cool website where you decide to do something everyday for 100, 365, or unlimited days. I have seen some people teaching themselves to play instruments, learning a new language, learning how to do unsupported handstands, pushups, and fitness. Everyday you would post a video of you doing whatever you have decided to do for the 100 days. It takes the first 10 seconds of the video. I feel like this can be another layer of MY accountability to myself. If I don’t post there everyday then I haven’t fulfilled my goals to myself. Check it out here.
This week has been successful in my fitness goals and my eating. I’m going to make these goals a reality and I am going to do everything in my power to get to a healthier me.
