Oh hey! Today’s been a pretty good day!
NSVs (non scale victories) have been happening:
- Yesterday I counted calories and stayed in the right range AND ate lots of veggies.
- No emotional/stress eating yesterday or today.
- Today I was recognized by my boss at work because, frankly, I’m awesome. Sometimes I feel surprised by this idea but I actually am a hard worker and very good at what I do.
- Tonight I scheduled some time for myself to both exercise and read some more of my current book choice: Overcoming Overeating.
And this totally isn’t a personal victory or anything, but some of my favorite people in the world just got engaged! I’m so happy for them that it has made me generally just very happy today. :)
Yesterday I admitted the problem I’ve been having. Not exercising = not taking care of myself = feeling worse physically and mentally.
After that blog post I blocked off some time to workout when I got home. 30 minutes or so was spent kickboxing and lifting light weights borrowed from the roommate. As I thought, it made me feel much better today. The exercise I’ve done tonight has just boosted that.
The exercise and mental health connection for me is HUGE.
I like exercise, it is fun for me, and it makes me feel better. I’m super crunched for time right now (which is one thing causing me stress) but I’m going to try harder to make time to exercise.sweat.shower, the combination that I really need!
So all in all things are good!
