Hoping that tonights meeting will inspire. Hoping that the scale won't punish me for not going to the gym last week. School vacation week, hired at a new job, car issues, and other assorted EXCUSES.... Not all stressed-out busy people are fat - right? How can I use something other than food to make myself calm down? It is the one issue - if solved - that can help me reach my goals. Hard work is OK, it is the uncontrolable urges to shove food into my mouth that I need help with...ugh.
This week I started my new job. It has caused me to shift some of my duties and that is good. I've been getting up at 5:00 am and walking the dog with my neighbor. I do laundry and get the kids school stuff together and shower before I have to wake my oldest daughter at 6:30 am. I have to do more than just walk the dog and it will take a few weeks to figure out how to fit exercise into my new life. 28 hours of committed work time is a lot --- I haven't worked more than 10 a week for the last 10 years!!!
