Feel really good about the week. No travel, no illness, limited work craziness. Got my workouts in, and upped some of my weights, so muscle gain not loss too. Real strong week. Actually touched in at sub-250 mid-week twice, so actually slightly disappointed couldn’t report that as official number, but still really pleased.
Quick note to my subscribers…
I’m subscribed to you too! Even though wordpress doesn’t know it. See my Mutally Assured Subscription topic.
Don’t let em get your health too..
On another blog, David writes that pretty much all overweight people are emotional eaters, which is probably true.
I know I eat too much in general for love of food, and it gets worse when things get crazy or depressing at work. I also see it with my boss at work (who is not obese but could stand to lose a few pounds) when the pressure is on and people are unhappy.
One thing that has helped me is a new catch phrase my boss and I say when we see each other going for a poor choice at work – “[Our employer] already has your wealth and happiness tied up, don’t let them get your health too.” Certainly been working for us anyway.
So if things are bothering you and you find yourself reaching for “comfort” food, try thinking “I’m not gonna let this take my health too!”
Separately, I’ve decided to join the Post A Week 2011 Challenge.
