Lately a funny thing has been happening...
I mean this is so totally not me that it is kind of surreal...
In the past when I have been frustrated/ upset etc... I would either:
1. Eat- (something preferably either chocolate, breads, or cookie/cake etc....)
2. Clean- yeah I know - weird, but at least it was productive!
Lately with the "new" way of eating etc... the eating has not been as much fun- I mean if I eat what I'd REALLY want- I'd blow my calories for the day. So that has not been an option....
Cleaning?- Just not really feeling that lately- plus it isn't too bad around the house with me off for the summer.
So my replacement activity?
I have been jogging more. I have graduated from a pathetic shuffle to an actual jog!
Now I'm not going to win any races or marathons by a long shot, but it HAS gotten easier.
Plus I don't hate it as much as I used to- I usually have worked out some of my problems in my head or at least asked God for guidance by the time I am done- which is usually about a half hour later.
I am starting to understand why people like to run- *waiting for the walls to begin shaking*
Hubby and I are actually considering buying an elliptical machine so we can use it once the weather turns bad this fall/winter!
I think my own mortality in the form of my upcoming birthday is helping to fuel my metamorphsis.
I just hope I continue in this frame of mind because it is good for me!
