Hi Jeff! Thanks for the support, you are dead on when you say that sugar is like a an addicting drug. The stress of life has been getting to me and I am feeding myself carbs and I know for a fact it makes the stress that much harder to handle. I have been cleaning and eating and the cleaning makes me feel so good but the eating makes me feel so horrible. I am to the point now though that I exercised a few times this week and I know for a fact that my body needs to move and sweat and lift. It is hard to explain but I feel the most like myself when I am in the gym. I think more clearly and I feel like I can handle anything then when I get home and nurses and doctors and kids and the dogs all are needing something from me, I just crumble and eat.
I was doing so awesome and feeling so good a few weeks ago so I know that I can do it, I am just having a hard time doing it fully this time. I have a lot of things scheduled the next few weeks so I really want to feel good, hopefully I can commit to this healthy WOE for real! I just made some chicken and spinach soup and threw a handful of whole wheat pasta in and it is delicious. I am going to try to do really well and not consider a few noodles as a cheat since they are whole wheat. I did step class today and then jogged 3 miles with DH so I feel really good....I honestly didn't think I had a run in me but he was going so I joined him and it felt awesome to complete it. I am already sore which is a great feeling.
Chris, It's so nice to hear from you! Good luck cleaning...it has made me feel so good and I am looking at it as prep for my new beginning of starting this WOL again. I know I can do it, it's just a matter of when
. I am slowly getting on....
Lisa, you are so right about the starting the day with sugar and craving it the rest of the day...It is a horrible cycle to be in...I need to get through one day of no bad sugars and the rest of the days get so much easier...Working out has helped me change my mood so hopefully each day I will get stronger all around!
I finally hopped on the scale and I gained but it wasn't as horrible as I thought. It was 143.6 so I am up but I know I can get back in the 130's if I want it bad enough and I really do......Gotta work hard this week!
