I work in a cubicle jungle, and during this cold/flu season my cubicle feels like a petri dish. This past week I caught a really bad cold/virus. Sore throat, sniffles, aches, tiredness. The only thing it did not do was make me hungry, thank goodness! It did however make it difficult to drink all my water. When I don’t drink all my liquids for the day, I feel sluggish and hungry.
Overcoming emotional eating is still my biggest challenge. I received some bad news this week, and I immediately felt the urge to find something cruncy and salty and fattening to put in my mouth. I really had to make an effort to stay away from those things, and instead think about what I need to do to make my situaiton a little bit better. That did not work everyday, but I would say most days I was successful at not succumbing to the urge to eat due to my emotions.
I overrate one day this past week, and it happened on the day that I did not work out. I waited too long to eat and had too many tempting things around me. So what will I do to change that? I won’t wait too long to eat, and I won’t have the foods that tempt me laying around so accessible. And working out makes me feel good…and I want to workout….and I want to feel better.
I fell down, but I put myself upright and am determined to keep going….that’s how we do it, right?
- Quit stuffing my face!
- Stop picking up hitchhiking viruses/colds!!
- Keep moving! Dance, excersize, park far away etc.
