Baad Times, How?

Postby yoyogirl88 » Wed Jan 23, 2008 8:28 pm

How do you guys handle the bad times and your diet and excersise.

I have had a freaking bad couple of weeks and now my cars in the shop and I have NO money.

Im taking this bad and have stressed and grrd and cried but I have realised im losing track of my eating (doing a lil better today) and have stopped walking and doing my normal morning and night time exercises.

Excuses excuses is all thats running through my head but I know what I'm doing wrong I just get lazy and go nah dont feel like it.

So basically, How do you get rid of that "Nah, dont feel like it." voice??

Honestly, I just DO it - I physically make myself.

As for eating, if I eat badly, I exercise twice as hard.
Saying goodbye to calorie counting AND scales for a while.

Just enjoying the new and improved healthy me and embracing my new lifestyle!

I've been in the same boat Yoyo girl. I had 2 weeks off over Xmas where I didn't get paid, my car was in the shop, I had no money and felt SO depressed.

I FORCED myself to go to the gym and when I did, I realised that for those 30 or 45 minutes, I'm completely stress free (in my mind anyway!). I forget about everything going on in my life and just think about me and my body and my health.

I now go every night straight from work (if I go home and sit down, I know I'll never get back up again) and find that by the time I do get home, work is completely left at the office.

If you FORCE yourself the first few weeks, it may become habit where you don't even think about it.

Another piece of advice is to find something you enjoy, then it's not such an effort!

I also find that when I exercise, I eat better as I don't want to waste my effort!!!

Good luck...let us know how you go :)

Don't think about why you don't want to do it, think about how you will feel afterwards. It always makes you feel good afterwards, just knowing that you've done something good for yourself helps. I didn't want to go out for my walk yesterday but at 8:15pm i was feeling so bad and guilty i went, felt great afterwards.
Remember excerise helps stress and gives you a good chance to think things through properly.

I keep a journal.

I find writing things down really helps to clear my head.

I also add pictures of clothes that I want to wear once I get to my goal weight, exercise and diet tips, poems, affirmations, inspirational stories - whatever I find this very inspirational.

I also chart my weight loss and keep track of my measurements.

Its my weight loss journal I guess, but I write everything I feel - not just weight loss related stuff in there. When I have a down moment and feel like its never going to happen and what's the point - I might as well go have that cheese cake/chocolate, I read through my journal and it brings to light just why I'm doing this and all the hard slog is worth it in the end.

For me its not about losing the weight to look good, its losing the weight to be healthy.
Start weight - 77kgs
Goal weight - 53kgs
Current Weight - 50.1kgs


No more weighing, no more scales. My measurement is my success at health. It's an investment I make every single day. My priority: be healthy!

Basically, whenever I'm having a crap time of everything that I can't control, I think "What can I control?" and realise that it's what I eat, and how much I exercise and how I take care of myself. Mum always asks me how I keep sticking to healthy eating etc when I'm down or having problems with something, and that's my answer :)

+1!

Also, if you do manage to eat healthy while down, you feel that satisfaction that you're doing better than others and you expect of yourself.

I find putting on your favourite music, and dancing along to it is great stress relief PLUS you burn lots of calories :)

Exactly :) And in a way, it strengthens you to be able to cope better the next time something sh*tty happens. Cos let's face it, life throws us some pretty weird stuff sometimes! I'd rather be focussing on how to fix it than beating myself up over giving in to temptation and scoffing a whole cake or block of choccie etc :D
