So when is the move? I know moving and/or life changes cause me anxiety too. Have a fantastic day anyways!

i've def gained a few lbs, all due to overeating in the previous weeks. i know what to do, will start doing that this moment.  i guess i'm really anxious about moving, to the point where it's making me tired just thinking about it! i know i am being a big baby, but life changes like this also have me all twisted up. several years ago, i needed to pack for a 10 day trip to Israel and had a breakdown doing just that. sometimes, major change from routine gets me wound up truthfully. i need to work on this, because otherwise i'm going to have many problems these next two months. most importantly, i do need to focus more on my weight, which has drifted up. 

the goal?? well, not so much the number, just that i want it to go downward. in the back of my head, my long-term goal is weigh around 115, not really any lower. i will try. first i need to get back into the lower 120's.

breakfast: salmon 300 on 1/2 pita 100, 1/4 avocado100, milk: 100 600

snack: bar, no coffee 200

lunch:

2150 cals, success. 25 min hard stairmaster, and 10 min light bike. also 15 min at lunch of walking. decent. leg still hurts, gonna do weights tomorrow no matter what :-)

eating today was hard because i was very hungry, especially around 4:30pm. sugar was out of whack after last night. tomorrow will be so much easier!

lolla on 02/19/2013:
Relax, take a deep breath and take care of one thing at a time. I am just like you, stressing about so much on my head. Get busy or go outside, it usually helps to distract the worrying mind of mine.


supercheese on 02/19/2013:
Its okay. Im sure with all the lifting you do itll go down right away! When are you moving??


V on 02/19/2013:
I am sure you will harness that nervous feeling into something else..Just think about how nice it will be to be in your own place and can make shakes ANYTIME you please :) Hope you had a good day <3


nunnermack on 02/19/2013:
Ahh..you're moving too? Me too. I'm supposed to be out of my apt by May 1st? How about you? I too get stressed out just thinking about it. I know it's two months away but I feel relief just by starting to collect boxes, starting to throw things away, etc. It eases my stress levels a bit and also takes my mind off of the wondering and worrying of, "Gee, where am I going to be living? Will this all work out??" And, keeps me away from food!!

Have a good day today!

Thanks for the clarification on 'time running out'; I completely understand as i've had those anxious feelings myself from time to time ;)

One thing to remember is that by worrying and thinking about it so much, you might be setting yourself up to fail. Believing you may not reach your goal makes it seem more probable, don't you think? So try to change your thinking; you can do this, if you just take it one day at a time.

And breathe more. And deeply. You can do this!
