No relief

Standard

Running gave me relief.  On this diet I can’t run.

Unfortunately this diet is making me crazy.  And work is not great right now.  So I need the stress-relief.

For 38 years my stress-relief was food.  I can’t have food.  I can’t run.

All I’m doing is sleeping, crying, being overly emotional, and a crazy mess.

Fun, huh?  I’m a regular joy to be around currently.

  1. Hi Amy…stalker here 🙂 I love reading your blogs. You are an amazing inspiration and also provide insight that this is not some easy quick weight loss scheme, but a real lifestyle change. I have struggled with my weight all my life and am again at my highest. I miss the day when I was 189, because then I was a comfortable size 14 sometimes 12 and I looked in the mirror and thought I looked darn good as I am sure you do. My thought to your above post is….if your weight is not budging and you need stress relief, why not try running again? Perhaps your body has now adjusted to the routine and needs a little poke. At least if you are going to be at a plateau, you might as well get the anti-depressant benefits of exercise! Let those endorphins kick in to help you manage the stress and feel better :). Just a thought. Keep at it and keep blogging & I will keep stalking.lol Best wishes! Sheila

  3. I’m so grateful you took the time to respond and that you read my blog! I’m going to keep your thought about running in the back of my head. Maybe I will consider doing it one time per week, and just long enough for the stress relief part….and not for training for a 5k.
