It's an early day at the hospital today, so I haven't gotten my movement in, but hubby promises to take me out jogging when I get home. Yesterday was a "free day." I need those off every now and then; no specially dedicated exercise time, went out to eat with hubby and friends. Today, it's back on it tho! (I know if I give me an inch, I will take a mile and a jelly donut, too
Don't think we've talked about food triggers yet? Someone posted a few days ago about "emotional eating" - eating for reasons other than hunger - stress, boredom, dehydration, whatever.
Do you have eating triggers? What are they? How can we avoid the pitfalls that cause us to overindulge and feel guilty later?
I'm off but I hope each of you enjoy your holiday weekend and if family obligations keep you tied up tomorrow, we'll see you back on Monday! We're all so proud of you and the effort you are making!
Don't forget your water!

Needed a laugh this morning and this quote struck me:
"My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four. Unless there are three other people."

How is this for stress eating? I have gained my "freshman 15" at the ages of 24 and 25 because of going through the nursing program. I don't even really care for junk food, but if there is something salty I can munch on while writing a paper or studying...all the while with a knot of anxiety because I know I will get fat, and that the salt isn't helping with my occasional swelling problem. Stress is my definitely my trigger.....However, I did take my kids to the park again today and we walked a nature trail---probably about 2-3 miles. Sun felt good and so did the exercise.
