Hi girls! Way to go on all of the victories! I can't believe you are all talking PUSH-UPS- I am such a wimp, it makes my arms hurt to think about it.
I have to admit that I have been avoiding the boards for the week. I stuck my head in the sand again. I got stuck on the question of June victories, and my initial thought was that I didn't have any. BUT, a funny thing happens when your head is stuck in the sand and you can't breathe! I had an ah-ha moment. So here is my June victory:
(Dr. Phil would be so proud!) After several years of not believing that I am an emotional eater, I totally busted myself June 30th! (Thank goodness it wasn't July 1st, or June would have been a complete wash!) I eat when I am stressed, and I am mostly stressed about money. I took a 2 hour drive, thought about my finances the entire way, and downed a starbucks, a bag of peanuts, and a bag of peachios (which I discovered I don't even LIKE after my big moment...
) on the way back. This is when I started thinking- I would never take the time to go into the gas station to buy crap unless I really didn't want to think about whatever was rattling around in my head. So I let it rattle, and realized the ugly little cycle I'm in. When I eat badly, I feel frumpy and ugly, so I shop to reinvent myself and make myself feel better. Which works GREAT, until I get the bill. And then I stress about money, and the cycle continues.
So, Here is my July goal: I am going to sit in my own stinky financial mess, and just own it. I am going to allow myself to feel disappointed and worried and depressed, and actually acknowledge my situation rather than hide from it. I am going to make a plan and work at it, rather than hide from it at McDonalds.
And then I am going to get off my a$$ and go to the gym! The membership is paid for, it's essentially free. This is just silly that I don't go daily!
So, 5 lbs backwards, I am going to get moving forward... AGAIN!
GG- I want a darn star! I am going to make up for it this weekend, if it kills me!
Sorry for the long rant...
