Day 67

This week has totally kicked my butt. I have been to the gym 4 times but it has been a struggle to get me there for the last few days. I am glad I have been going, and I love the way I feel after. I'm just beat and cant figure out why. No excuses or anything, I don't need them, I am still getting there everyday.

My food was so much better today too. I feel like I ate so much more, but I always do when I am eating lower point or better for me foods.

I am going grocery/Christmas shopping tomorrow! Another test, and time to plan ahead. I need to realize that I am going to be out of the house for most of the day and plan accordingly, or plan my meals around my stops home, and plan ahead for eating out if I miss eating at home. Either way, I have some work to do. I feel like this is one of those places where I fall down really easily. I have a day out, and don't eat until the last minute because of poor planning and then poor planning and hunger make my choices for me. At that point I'm no longer in control. I think I'll take some small snacks with me too, to fend that off if we end up in that kind of a situation. Every time I gain back control over food I gain another foothold on this journey. Even if I don't want to make the right choice or if I feel miserable in the moment I know that I will feel good about my choice later after the food has passed. Life will be easier to fill with good moments once I get used to letting the anxiety over food go. Sometimes its best to take a moment and remember what I'm doing and what this means to me. It might not even always work, but it will always slow me down and make me think.

I think taking snacks with you when you go shopping is an absolutely fantastic idea! That will definitely help you to be in control and keep you from getting really hungry throughout the day if you can't have proper meals at your regular mealtimes. Apples would be great, and a peanut butter sandwich (made with natural peanut butter on whole wheat bread) would be great as well. And don't forget to take along some water!

I hope you have a great day shopping! :)

Good luck today!

Are you really tired feeling all the time? I was while I was pregnant, and it turned out I was anemic. Iron pills are cheap if you shop around (Kroger has some for $4 or $5). Talk to your doc about anemia. A blood test is all they'll need from you!
