Why do we use food to numb the pain or to celebrate a joyful occasion. Why do some of us have trouble with food and other don't? How do I make it work? I am not so concerned with being a skinny woman, as an active and adept one.
For me to do that, I have to manage the food and exercise issues. I cannot let what is going on right now continue. I cannot use the heat as an excuse to not exercise. I cannot use not being who I think I should be influence choices. I know this but now I have to exercise those choices every day.
I can splurge sometimes. It is when the spluge becomes the everyday reality. It is not acceptable. I know how to choose. Now I have to find ways to choose realistically on a daily basis.
I have to walk every day 30 minutes. I have to log my food. I have to think about choices not only in food but how I can add spurts of exercise to my daily routine. Park farther from the door, use the stairs, whatever is needed, to make me better.
