Hey all, Just need some motivation if you have any to spare. Such a lousy week and weekend. Wanting to get totally off track with good health habits I've worked so hard to create. My bp and weight have been great so far.(at least up until this week) We might be able to ttc sooner than we thought if I can keep it up. After this week I am sorely in need of some motivation. Don't know if I can keep it up. Help if ya can. Thanks. Jamie
YOU CAN DO IT!!! Just look in the mirror and think about how hard you have worked to get to where you are now and how quickly and easily that can become undone if you aren't on top of it. I know that food is your friend, especially good comfort food when it has been a crappy week (Trust me, I TOTALLY understand having the crappy week thing!!! ) However, what I have found that I have to do sometimes is that instead of comfort food, I have comfort 'stuff' to make me feel better. Like since I'm a knitter, I'll buy a skein of neato yarn I have wanted and knit something cool with it. So maybe, if you have an outside hobby, you might want to reward yourself with a comfort crappy day present that is something for your hobby. Just as comforting without the calories and cholesterol
It will get better because tomorrow is the start of a new week! Now repeat, "I'm good enough, I'm strong enough and gosh darn it people like me"
Thanks girl I needed that. I started again on Sunday w/my good habits. I guess a couple of days won't make or break my diet. My weight is still good and my bp was good this morning, but I took it this afternoon and it was high again. I have no idea what's causing it and I'm sooooooooooooooooooo frustrated. I am going in to see my ob on Thursday just to go over my concerns re: preg and my bp. I'm ot sure if anything will come of it, but i usually feel better just talking to her. We'll see. If it stays up htough, I'll be seeing my faimly doc at the end of this month. Hope your week is getting better and thanks for the motivation and idea. i want to learn how to knit. I make bankets sometimes (fleece) maybe now's the time to learn.
