Now it's time to get back in control.
I've been emotional eating for three weeks straight. Not so bad and out of control, just not as healthy as I would want to. That's my major weakness...eating when my emotions are out of whack. Now, after a nice long walk, time spent alone, tears, and lots of prayer (and a hug from Mom), I'm ready to take control.
The thing I like most about this time of year is its pretty much harvest season so fresh vegetables are in abundance. What better way to get back to basics than with a trip to the farmers market. I've purchased a subscription to NextIssue and downloaded a bunch of magazines with recipes containing fresh vegetables. I'm also going to get back to taking vitamin supplements on a regular basis. I was told perhaps I've got some imbalance going on.
A friend put together a five day program for me...actually it feels more like a challenge! Five days of going for a 60 minute walk. No jogging, just walking while listening to ambient music and clearing my mind. Five days of having five full servings of vegetables a day. That'll be tough but I'm game. Five days of getting at least 8 full hours of sleep... I work nights, overtime as of recently so that will be the biggest challenge. And drink 2 litres of water a day. And completely remove cafeine from my system. I've had decaf coffee at home and when i go to Tim Hortons as well, but i have a jar of regular roast instant Maxwell House in my locker at work and that may be sabotaging my sleep.
She insisted I log my day to day on here and to be honest when I do, so let the fun begin.
