Fitness/ Weight Loss Journal- Day 5- A Dull Sunday

It was a dull day today. Most Sunday’s are that for me. I think the Monday morning blues hit me on Sunday’s. And the thing with dull days is that it drives me to food. Emotional eating is a very common problem. Somehow we seem to feel that food will give us comfort and we reach out for something junk to eat.

Another comfort is TV because it distracts us from whatever we are feeling. But TV more often than not leads to binge eating. The problem is the thoughts and we never address them. We just try to suppress them. So I learnt this recently that instead of suppressing thoughts be with them , feel them , feel what you are feeling to the fullest.

If you really wish to move away from them turn to something creative, to a hobby. Watching TV is passive. Instead when you get actively get involved in something you jump out of wherever you were stuck.

So today food of course was a no and I could make it happen because gratefully I was in control and not my emotions. I was being time and again driven to switch on the TV, but I know how much I later regret all that wasted time. So I made a cup of tea and sat with this awesome book The Naani Diaries. I read for a while and then did some art. And ta da I was feeling much much better.

As the day closes I also intend to turn into bed early as I have to start at 4.45am today. A good night’s sleep makes everything much better.

That was the emotions today.

Diet was totally on track, except for the one cup of tea that I had with the book, not out of my diet chart, but I am trying to move to green tea.

The day as usual started with my first love, Yoga. 40 minutes on the mat. In the evening went for a shoulder and back workout, followed by ten minutes of basketball with my daughter. Finished it up with 40 minutes of walk.

A dull day but I ensured it was fruitful. Have lots to be done in the coming week. I know I will make it a great week ahead.

Love and light 🙂
