Consistency Changes things
There has been a lot going on lately and I have been under more stressed than usual. I am excited to say that I found myself throwing myself into my workout instead of running to food. I could literally feel the stress building and building, I couldn't wait to workout or hit the pavement. This evening, I was just slapped in the face with anxiety and stress and I felt like I need to run. I haven't run in years! It was raining out so I popped in my Walk Off the Pounds DVD and put all my energy in walking two miles... it felt great. I wanted to keep going, I felt like I could have gone another hour. It was an amazing feeling. I was so proud of myself when I realized that I was not in the kitchen dealing with my feelings, it wasn't even my first thought (of course it crossed my mind later) but initially, I went to exercise. WOW, me... I choose exercise! Consistency is paying off! I can't kid myself, I need to be careful because I am on edge and if I am not careful, I could wind up in the kitchen. I am going to take a hot shower and hit the sack, hopefully that two mile workout will put me to sleep like a baby!
