I confess…I still eat to soothe my emotions
So today (okay yesterday now) was my first day back in the gym in over two weeks. I didn’t stay too long because after twenty minutes on the elliptical and twenty minutes on the bike my leg began to hurt a bit and while I entertained the thought of getting on the treadmill, I did not. I listened to my body which was telling me that was enough for the day. I did manage to do some upper body work as well that was necessary. I found that I was missed in the gym and that they were really concerned about me. It is very nice to know that my presence has any kind of impact on them and that is just all the more reason why I love that gym so much because we are kind of like our own little family. Of course while I was on my little two week break the amount of emotional eating that I did picked up and I don’t even know how it happened but it did and I need to fix it. The thing about this whole losing weight thing is that it’s much more difficult when the reason you are eating has more to do with the emotions that you are feeling inside, or the struggles you might be experiencing and the depression that might be trying to settle it’s way in. Most people can’t really control their emotions, they are just there. I am an extremely emotional person and when I feel things I feel them ten times over. Yep I am certainly still a work in progress but I haven’t given up yet because I know that I can get where I need to be. Well just keep praying for me and that I get this thing together soon. Until next time…be blessed!!!
