Week 2 SCC midweek post

So this week has just been very odd and not my week. I had a death in the family I'm dealing with. I don't deal well with death and never have. Yesterday the stress got to me and I had to have chocolate. I went into the store and got a candy bar. NOT GOOD. I'm supposed to be fixing this problem of emotional eating. But I did however make sure it fit into my calorie count for the day so that I didn't go over my amount. I've have gotten in at least 80 ounces of water each day. However, I have not made it to the gym since Sunday and that makes me feel horrible. I'm not sure why I haven't made it. I would have thought the stress of this week would push me to go, but it hasn't. On the upside my food has been good and I've lost weight this week. What do you do when you're in a workout slump? I really need help with this. I'm telling myself to go tonight and I hope it works out. I hate feeling this way. I'm only 3 lbs. away from my first 20 lbs. and entering a new weight bracket. I can't stop now!


  1. Sorry to hear about the death in your family. When I'm in a workout slump, I'll go do something fun like Zumba or a walk with Chris...or I force Chris to FORCE me to go on the treadmill...

    Also, if you were careful and ensured to fit the chocolate bar into your calorie budget, I don't consider that emotional eating simply because you did it conciously and with thought. Sometimes, what we need is a little chocolate fix and we're fine. Don't beat yourself up over it.

  2. I agree with Taryn. If it fits well into your cal-budget I wouldn't consider it harmful emotional eating.

    I had a workout slump this week, with no excuses to justify it other than being tired. This morning I dragged myself out of bed to workout, and I felt so good after! Even if you just go for a walk, or go old school with jumping jacks, sit-ups and push-ups, even if you only put in 10 mins... just do something!

    Also you are doing GREAT! We all have a rough day/week/even month every now and then, getting back to it is where we win! You CAN do this!

  3. Im soo sorry about the death in your family, I agree with the frist comment try something fun, Ask a friend to go with you just to get in to the groove of things again, Your feelings are probably very Mixed right now due to the death, Take a breather, Take a day for you and get back on track afterwards you might just need a "You day" a breather :) Sometimes that helps me regain my focus!

  4. So sorry to hear about your loss. I knowhow hard it can be to workout when u r not feeling it. I try to do a little bit of exercise like 10minutes. Normally if I start 10 minutes I normally do more. I also try to have other people hold me accountable. It is easier for me to quit on myself than to quit on others.
