**Days 431 & 432**

I had a great workout at the gym yesterday - 40 min. on the elliptical:
And then I did 20 minutes on the treadmill, but I forgot to take a picture of the treadmill workout because I was ready to drop after doing 60 minutes of cardio!  I didn't exercise today, but I'll be back at the gym Thursday and Friday.

I haven't been eating as good as I should be - I don't know what my problem is...I mean, it's stupid to exercise, and then eat a not-so-great meal.  I've been feeling really down, lately.  I don't even know why, but I've always been an emotional eater, and, sometimes, I still give into the need to comfort myself with food.  It's a hard thing to break - as I'm sure most of you know!  I know it's always going to be a battle for me, and I need to fight it better.  Why can't I want to comfort myself with exercise, and not bad food?!!


  1. I do that too. I know it's crazy, but working out will sometimes make me hungrier lol.

    1. I do get really hungry after my workouts, so I have to start planning better!!

  2. I go through fits of it being easier to not emotionally eat - sometimes I have the food together but am unmotivated to exercise, other times I work out like a fiend but make poor eating choices. The good thing is that you're still working out and not letting the emotional eating take over - treading water is tough, but it's a lot better than giving up and regaining everything! ♥ Good luck with finding your balance!
