crabby Kat's Journal, 08 October 2012

Ugh, I've gained weight. I'd like to think it's from water retention and building muscle, but I know that I've been eating too many treats. I've been exercising my butt off (literally; this former 20W is now a size 10), but this smaller body needs less calories. I'll cut back on sweets.

I've had a hard time with emotional eating since my partner is in pain and had a negative outlook and is comfort-eating. I've listened to my meditation tapes, gone to my exercise classes, shopped for and cooked healthy food, but I eat granola bars, low-fat ice cream bars, frozen fruit bars, and some chocolate.

I did two Zumba classes in a row today, and it felt so good! To let everything go except the music and the moves; to be able to dance and kick butt; ahhhh. One of my gym pals asked if I'm going to the 4:30 Zumba class tomorrow; i'm going to Silver Sneakers in the morning, but I think I'll go to Zumba, too. My partner is meeting an old friend for dinner, so my afternoon is wide open. I hope my body is up for it. I'd rather fill the empty spaces in my life with feel-good exercises instead of sweet treats.
