With the jaw/tooth drama (I really just needed a root canal and NO muscle relaxants and could have been on skates the next day. Awesome.), stress from applying for a home loan (more later), and being really bummed about not being able to skate in tomorrow's bout, it's been a bad couple of weeks. I know that I can rise above drama, stress, and drug-induced nonsensical rages. The truth is, I really didn't want to. I wanted to eat what I wanted to eat, and that's that. And I gained 3.1 pounds, which is more than half of what I've lost. Lesson learned, and I'm ready to be back on the wagon.
The challenge is that we were approved for a home loan. Wonderful news, yes, but I'm sure that there will be much stress eating to rise above in the coming months.
This coming week's goals:
- track it. all of it!
- skate: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday. A lot, I know. but I missed all of last week, and we have an away bout on the 16th.
- extra exercise, even just walking, on the off skate days. I'd like to lose most of that weight this week.
- work on finding a successful alternative to stress eating (walking, cleaning, crazy dancing? something productive?)
When stressed, what do you do other than eat?
