I've had a stressful summer. Too much to do and not enough time to do it in. Sound familiar? We all have stress in our lives and for me, there are times I can handle it and other times when I can't.
When I can't handle it, I take my stress out with eating. For me, I ate more this summer than I usually do. Come to think of it, I didn't eat that much worse than I have all year as I maintained my weight loss. But I am currently a good 10 pounds heavier now. Why? I haven't been exercising! When I say exercising is key, I mean it!! I can have a little allowance with my eating if I am working out, if I'm not, my weight just creeps back on, every time.
Right now I sit here and I can feel my waist line cut into my tummy. I HATE this feeling and yet it's back. The first thing I need to do is make time for the elliptical. Even if I don't change my snacking or stress relieving methods, the workouts will help with maintaining so I can stay in my snug pants (for now) instead of having to buy the next size.
