Stress, Exercise and Food

I love food, always have and always will. But I eat a lot more when I’m stressed. I am almost, always stressed, and have not been consistent with exercise. I used to weigh 110 lbs, today I weigh 150lbs.

For me, exercise in the only way to reduce stress. If my stress is reduced, i eat healthier and feel full quickly. If i exercise regularly, I will be able to balance my love for food with a healthy weight without having to sacrifice one for the other. If I don’t exercise, I overeat.

I walk outside for 30 minutes every day, but that’s not enough physical activity for me. I need to make sure I go to the gym for 45 minutes, 3 times a week. I have gym memberships at work and at goldsgym so i have no excuse here.

The problem i have is consistency. For example, once I miss a week going to the gym. The habit breaks. My brain no longer registers the gym as part of my routine and i start to feel indifferent towards not going…I eat and veg a lot…drink Starbucks white mocha 2 times a day….until I notice i start to look like humpty dumpty again. Depression sets in, and then i have yet to break the bad habits and create new ones. And this is the hardest part for me!

So, I’m setting up M,W,F am before work for gym; and daily walk outside for 30 minutes. That is my goal and we shall see. 🙂

If you have any advice, email me at mymidthirties@Gmail.com but in the mean time, here are some of my favorite food :-). I mean i can still eat a little bit of them every once a while Right??
