I love the SP reports...
Just looked at my monthly reports from Feb this year until now. That's 8 months. It is just so interesting what patterns you can find in retrospect.
I seem to have a direct correlation to unhealthy eating patterns and steady weight gain and the big earthquakes we had here.
There are massive gradual increases in eating (and often exercise too) after a big event (Feb and June esp.) even though I don't consciously go out to eat more I must just do it. This somewhat worries me as I don't yet seem to KNOW that I am doing this - even while faithfully tracking everything daily.
The amount of exercise didn't seem to matter as much to the steady weight gain as the total calories I ate (not a scientific observation of course, just my own
So in retrospect, according to my SP reports it has taken me 8 months to regain proper control over my eating!!! I am now back to eating a healthy range of foods, less eating out and more steady exercise.
My name is Anna, and I am a stress eater. Conscious or not - the proof is there in orange, green and red. I know I have overcome many kinds of emotional eating (study, relationship and self-distress eating) but it appears I must consciously watch myself when natural disasters hit us too!! (7698 earthquakes over 3 and counting!!)
Whoop!! Another notch in the belt of healthiness
