Week 7: excuses, or... why I'm not losing
Monday, September 22, 2014
I went out to lunch yesterday with a friend. We both struggle with our weight, so most of our conversation revolved around "the struggle". haha
Some of my issues with food can of course be attributed to the way I grew up. We absolutely had food as treats and rewards... and stopping that cycle is a daily struggle. Of course growing up, mom & I would SPLIT something, and now I finish it myself.
I find all KINDS of excuses to "treat" myself... Like a successful trip to the grocery store.. seriously? haha And yes, I've seen and heard the "Stop rewarding yourself with food, you're not a dog" and it's funny and true, but that doesn't mean it's not a struggle for me. Perhaps I should give myself a gold sticker on a chart instead of a twinkie...
I need to figure something out, because right now I'm not losing...
It was a rough weekend, stuff going on with our house and then during my run on Saturday, my food started hurting. I'm really hoping it's nothing, but I'm slightly concerned... not sure if I should run tonight or rest another day or two. I don't like taking days off, I've taken days off the last two weeks, and I'd really like to get back on the ball. BUT.... I don't want to aggrivate my foot more and be really out for awhile. dang it.
