Well I can safely say that that this is the easiest post I have written so far thanks, I believe, to the past few blogs that I have written. Simply put mentally I want to go some way to overcoming the emotional eating. I want to be able to say “no” or “stop” when I am faced with temptation or stress. Physically I want to lose some weight and get fitter.
How am I going to achieve these things? As I have said before I hope that this blog and the 30 day challenge mentioned in my first post will help me to go some way to getting on top of the emotional eating. I am combining the challenge with a list of 5 questions that I need to ask myself before I reach for the naughties and a list of distractions for me to do before I reach for the naughties! (I should probably concede that I am yet to start using these, but I know that one day very soon it will just click.)
Where the weight loss is concerned I am going to continue attending slimming world. I go to a group with a fantastic leader and I know that once my head is in the right place I will be able to succeed with it. More importantly is finding some form of exercise that I am motivated to do. I enjoy group exercise classes so I am hoping that once the baby is in an established bedtime routine (nearly there) or, even better, my husband can put him to bed I will be able to make it to some classes. I really like the sound of clubbercise! I also really fancy taking on some running, I like the sound of the park runs, so I need to get some running shoes and start pounding the streets!
There you go, pretty succinct this evening – like I said definitely the easiest post so far! So, to tomorrow……How can I invest in myself, my health, and my joy this year? Now, there’s a question!!!
