05/15/15- Paula's Healthy Living Eating/Exercise Journal: Friday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 12. May 2015 05:05



Never underestimate the effects of stress/triggers on your health and your food choices.  I am experiencing this myself right now.

I am in the process of moving me and my children to a new home, while shutting down a highly complicated and demanding lease where I am right now.  Being a single parent, this leaves all the responsibilities and details of the move to me.  I am trying to remain organized, utilizing LOTS of posted notes and reminders

I am insisting on keeping my workouts in place, as best as I can, as much for mental release, as for weight modification.  When I skip workouts, I start to feel crabby and short tempered.  I keep them on the schedule for me.

The healthy-eating aspect can be a challenge because just like anyone, when I feel stressed, I have trigger foods that I turn to for relief.  Dark chocolate acai berries are my nemesis.  I have a small handful to relieve that need for release.  It works for me.

The reason I share this issue with you is for everyone to realize that we are not alone in our life issues that put us into stressful situations that challenge our perseverance.  Be it the death of someone important to us, financial stresses, the loss of a job, divorce, moving or raising children, it isn’t easy.  It is easy to keep ourselves and our best health as a priority.  It isn’t easy not to turn to beer, ice cream or nachos when we feel the world closing in…but try. 

Try to remember that as we age, removing the weight and getting back on track after indulging in one of these episodes is harder.  Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow is TODAY!
