Eating Habits

My eating habits suck ass. I'm an emotional eater and with all the stress on me right now, it's just not a pretty site. I tend to avoid all mirrors so when I looked at myself yesterday I almost threw up.

So, today we went to the grocery store and I bought healthy foods. I just ate an apple with the carb friendly yogurt. It was good. And sweet. And totally not what I expected. I'm not sure what I expected but it wasnt that. I really need to change how I eat.

It's not really what I eat but how much and at what time. We ate after 8 last night and I swear for the past 3 nights. That's a real bad no no.

So I'm going to scour the internet and try to find a few more healthier recipes. All I bought was chicken (and I'm so not a fan of chicken). I have to find a way to cook it so I dont get tired of it.

I also bought apples (like I said before), baby carrots, fat free ranch (which I'm hoping doesn't taste as bad as I remember) and wheat english muffins.

So, starting today, I'm back on my health kick. I seriously need someone to kick my ass every now and then to keep me on track. I need someone questioning what I eat and when or if I'm working out. I just can't do this alone. I've tried.

So if my post in the near future slack off or are a tad bit bitchy (:)) please bear with me in this transition.

Thanks!! ;)

Sam! Good for you, although I'm going to tell you now, FF ranch...BLECH! I usually stick with the lite version, or FF italian or french (those are not as bad FF).

I'm an emotional eater too, just in the last two weeks I have put on 5lbs (real pounds, not water weight!). Not cool. I find if its not in the house I'm ok, but if I have something even slightly "good" in the house, I eat it all WAY too quickly. :sigh

I'll help in anyway I can -- I know you can do it! :hug

Ugh. I've been in a really unhealthy rut lately, too. Bravo to you for taking charge and turning things around! I need to do this, too. I really like you're "no eating after 8pm" thing. I tried doing this a while ago and it really helped (but I didnt' stick with it). I think I'll need to start doing this again.
