When you are so hungry that lack of food causes you to become angry, frustrated or both.
That's right folks Hangry is a real thing. Hangry is a feeling that I've been experiencing for the past couple of days. In the past, trying to rid myself of this feeling would of consisted of a bag of chips, fast food, or both. This past week hangry has been greeted with various veggies, string cheese, ice water and just one smores girl scout cookie ( I had to make sure it was safe for my son) HA!
As I've said before I was and some what still am an emotional eater. With the recurring sickness in our house hold, my own thoughts causing unnecessary stress, and a new antibiotic/steroid that make me want to eat and drink everything, I've been quite " emotional " and not turning to food has been a struggle. Luckily all I have to do is step on a scale and that seems to help me steer towards some carrots rather than Cheetos.
I've also been trying to take advantage of this lovely Nebraska weather and go for walks and enjoy time out doors. Going to the gym hasn't been the easiest for me the past couple of days, and trying to motivate myself to push past the point of "giving up" during workouts has become my goal for this week. I find my mind wandering to excuses such as being sick, tired, needing to clean house etc. While yes all those feelings and chores are real and do exist, thinking of the long run and pushing past my comfort zone is a new voice that's whispering behind the other excuses. (Yell it for the people in the back!!!)
And once again I'm determined to go farther than I have before and make new comfort zones for myself.
Wish me luck!
