January was rough for me. Between the middling depression at the beginning-middle of the month, to switching stores, to Watson passing, it just wasn’t a good month.
So I’m starting over on my goals. February is a new month, and I’m treating it as if it were a new year. It’s time to knuckle down and start working on the things that I want to accomplish. As you’ve seen, I have a list. But I’m shaking off the rough and weird last month and getting refocused. It’s time to get serious.
I’ve realized that intuitive eating is not for me. I have too many issues with food and eating, and I need the structure and accountability of logging food. But this gives me an opportunity. I can really drill down on when I want to eat and what I’m eating and start pulling out patterns as to when I want to eat and what I’m eating. I’ve already noticed that when I get home from work I want sugar and carbs. I know that this change to a new store is going to affect more than just location – I’m getting my proverbial ass kicked while I’m there. I’m logging more steps, more exercise, more everything. I’m going to be hungry and tired when I get home, I need to learn how to moderate my diet through the day to give me enough energy to keep me going through bedtime without overeating. I need to get my ass back to the gym – I was doing so well for awhile, and then that depression blip hit and I haven’t been back. There’s a location of my gym right by the new store, I going to have to start taking advantage of that.
That’s it for me today. I’m feeling a little motivated and more than a little determined.
I hope everyone had a good weekend and a good start to the week.
Stay safe, friends!
