Jib...I so feel that way too about a gym....I just don't feel right in my own skin...never mind people watching (although rationally, I know they probably don't even notice) but anyways, your plan sounds good....
My hubby and I Just bought a nordack track treadmill...I am sooooo siked. We debated on joining a gym (for the 3rd time in 5 years) but we decided the $$$$ would be worth it...to put into a peice of excercise equip. Ya know???? I am thrilled though...no one can watch..hehehehhehe
Monday, I start LA again...wohoo..looking foward to the structure.
Thanks for the B-day wishes...unfortunately..it felt like just another day
As I mention..the weather was horrible...so din din out was canceled....and it has been a rough week all around (my two year old is driving me...to eat!!!!) Also, I belong to a December 2002 babies and Mommies group..and one of the babies just died of SIDS...how devestating. All of our babes are the same age. Wow....it just really hits home. So, it has been an emotional week all around. But, in a wierd way..It was kinda nice not to "think " about LA...I am finding it hard...what I have to do is sit down and plan all my meals for the week and stick to it. Maybe that will be easier.
Have any of you guys ever tried OA *Over eaters annonymous) I did for about 4 months....For all of you who are not familiar with the program...it is based on 12steps..and you have a sponsor and all that you call every morning and let them know what you will be eating for that day. Basically..it is no SUGAR, FLOUR, PASTA, BREAD. Now that was hard.....At least onLA you are allowed some starches...I need that. ANways...the one thing that I did take away from that program..is that compuksive overeating takes up sooo much emotional energy...for example..you are constantly thinking about food. How true..even though you are not making wise food choices..it is always a constant...so ..
My point being here..when you write down your food...and committ to it...then you can let it go..and don;t worry about it...because it is already thought of and written down.. Do you guys follow me? It is a liberating feeling to know that since it is written down,,,,there is no need to eat compulsively....(I really have been bad this week..I just hope I didn't gain all that i lost.)
