Melanie: I need to stop using food for comfort

Wow, what another great week. I’ve been working out and training now for about a week and a half. Lisa and the other trainers have really shown me there are so many ways to exercise. Last Friday was really intense. We were running up and down a hill in 80 degree weather. I was so ready to give up but I stuck it out the whole time. It made me really proud because even though I was out of breath and sweating like crazy, I kept moving. It doesn’t matter that I did throw up afterwards haha, it’s moments like that make me realize what I am capable of. This week, we also have worked with kettle bells, which really work out your whole body. I can definitely feel it the next morning. Also, we have been doing lots of cardio whether it’s on the treadmill or doing aerobics. Sometimes I find myself not being able to keep up with the pace of the workouts, but Lisa reminds me just to keep moving and I’ll get there someday. I really appreciate the trainers encouragement and it feels really nice to have such a nice group of woman in this with me.

One of things Lisa keeps reminding us is that whatever you do outside of the gym is just as important as what you do inside the gym. Food is what got me to this weight and food is going to be the hardest challenge for me in losing the weight. I feel like I have made many great improvements like giving up soda and ice cream. But at the same time, I still find myself craving those fatty foods. I am trying to teach myself proper nutrition and it’s not easy. I am just going to take my struggle with food day by day. I want to just really try and think about what I am eating before I put it in my mouth. I need to stop using food for comfort and do other constructive healthy things instead. I want to become an all around healthy person again and exercise and healthy eating is the key.

    Just keep making the right choices – one at a time. And if you make a poor one, let it go and get right back on plan. I hope to see you at the gym. Hope the next week is a good one.

    P.S. – At least you weren’t running the hill THIS week when it was 95 out!
