HONESTY POST....I haven't been looking after myself, I have been struggling with some things that makes making the right choices hard.
I'm not sleeping....not uncommon for me and I have spent lots of time and $$$ trying to fix it over many years but at the moment its bad and I have been drawn in to the vicious cycle of caffeine and sugar to keep me awake during the day and then it also adds to my insomnia.
Lack of balance....when I'm in the midst of a project I am all in, my hubby says I have tunnel vision. The problem being that other important things get dropped off my schedule....like the gym.
Emotions.....I associate food with love and when Im am craving love and attention I comfort eat...my GO TO foods are sweet. So when I'm bingeing on Tim Tams I know there is something emotional going on.
All these things add to weight gain, loss of fitness and one very tired Mumma.
And I need to turn it around...not because being heavier bothers me but because my fitness and strength is something that helps me be me.
So from today on Im trying to make better decisions and to find a more balanced way of coping with being busy and sometimes sad.
Health is important....a number on a scale is not. So I'm not here saying I need to lose xxxkgs. I am saying I need to get to the gym 3 days a week, I need to find healthier ways to deal with sadness and I need to focus on my sleep.
