Mamavation Monday

Watch Lives Change

Well, Well, I am again wondering why the hell I'm writing a Mamavation Monday post. I haven't been a good sista and haven't really been healthy at all in the last few weeks.

I have been so stressed out with family bullshit that I haven't taken care of myself at all. I don't know how to NOT to "stress-eat". It really is the hardest thing I struggle with. I know what I should eat, how much to eat and when to and not to eat it. But when I get too overwhelmed with life, I have that "I don't give a shit" attitude and eat and drink what I want, when I want it.

I don't really need a pill to curb my appetite, I need one to stop my emotional appetite. Ugh, if any of you know of one, please let me know ASAP!

All I can do is keep trying and be grateful for the "good" days.
I will be having "All White Eggs" for breakfast everyday this week. I love them, to me they taste just like eggs. Sometimes I mix in 1 tablespoon of bacon pieces and a pinch of cheddar cheese. YUM YUM. I suggest you try them, you'll like it.

I did weigh myself this morning and I have gained 2lbs, I was surprised thought it was more.
See there is a silver lining!

See you all at the Mamavation Show tonight on Mingle Media Tv.

the stress eating is a hard one to overcome....its pretty much just getting out of that I dont give a crap attitude...think of the healthier eating as "me time"...and focus a little more on yourself during those stressful times. ((hugs))

I hear you on the stress eating. It's very difficult for me as well. I try to ask myself what is stressing me out, and I keep a list of things to do, with me at all times, in order to combat it. For ex: I have a list of stuff I always want to get to: organizing my files, cleaning my closet, writing in my journal, making a grocery list, etc. Just whatever. And I keep it with me. And whenever negative things seep into my mind, I recognize them, I say, "OK." and then I look at my list and keep my mind occupied with something else so I don't dwell. I hope that helps! xoxoo

If you find the cure for stress eating let me know before you become a billionare. Trying my best to get back on track.

I blame t33ns who stay out way past their curfew! I used to be an emotional eater but think I curbed it with a food log. I would not only record what I ate but where I ate, what time, how I felt before and after. I used this journal to track any trends of things I could avoid like going to long without eating and tending to be more emotional when I finally ate. I also wrote in this same journal about issues around my emotional binging. I learned a lot about myself and it worked for me.

Anyway be well Tina. Have a great week XOXO

I typically boredom eat so I see where you're coming from.
We all have our bad weeks. I'm glad you were able to see the silvery lining! Onward to next week. It will be better!

I have a big problem with emotional eating too. It's never gone away. I've just changed WHAT I eat when I get down or stressed. How did I do that? Well, I started to study what I was eating. I looked at the nutritional contents and started googling the words I didn't understand. Like "natural flavoring" is a lot of times code word for MSG, etc. The more educated I was about the food, the less likely I was going to put it in my mouth even if it tasted good. Xxoo

Dood, I hear ya on emotional eating. That's a tough one! Leah's right though, the best thing to do it to change what you eat when you get stressed. Easier said than done, right?... I hope this week is better for you!
