Night and Day

Friday, September 18, 2015

So, yesterday I was so stressed out with anxiety I was physically making myself nauseous. Then today... I wake up and I feel like I'm on top of the world. My body is messing with me so hardcore these days! I've never in my life experienced something so intense. It was extremely stressful for me. Like I was losing control of everything.

It lasted most of the day... but, started to fade about 3 in the afternoon... and now... I feel amazing. I think my body is trying to tell me I'm nuts. I really wouldn't' doubt it!

I will say though... which is a HUGE step for me... I got stressed out... and normally... when I get stressed out... its INSTANT FOOD TO THE FACE. This time around... I felt just nauseous... and did not gorge myself on unhealthy junk.

Today... the only thing I'm TRULY feeling is... I am so massively sleepy that I could easily curl up in a corner and sleep today. *sigh* I wish.

I've still been kicking butt with exercise and I have been soda free for 2 solid weeks now! That is the longest I've ever gone! *insert pat on the back here *

    Congrats on the soda-free streak! That is amazing.

    Keep telling your body that you are the boss here!

    Good for you for not resorting to food to assuage your feelings of anxiety. I struggle with anxiety as well and it can be incredibly debilitating. I am taking medication for it now which has helped a ton. Before I took medication I would find things that helped keep my emotions in a more neutral place - Project Runway, playing piano, walking the dog, doing laundry, sweeping, browsing pinterest. Stuff that didn't have a strong emotional reaction for me, but was relatively pleasant. I also created a post-depression playlist for times when I had a depressive episode, to guide me out of it to a more stable place. I included songs that bridged the gap between despair and contentment (not over the top happy but not too sad either.) I do find that SparkPeople helps keep me in a positive mindset too... :)

    Remember the "feel-good" feelings and wellness of your body--and use that as a weapon when you feel the temptation to cave :-) keep it up!
