Day 19: 21-Day-Detox

Friday, July 14, 2017 

I don’t know why I am so down today. Probably because I can’t go to The Camp to workout some of my frustration and anger about my personal life. I was late taking my daughter to childcare, so I missed the block of time in the morning when I would be able to go to the gym.

I hate working out at home. I would rather just clean or take my daughter on a walk, but I am feeling so down that I just want to lay in my bed…

I called off work today… I am so in my feelings and I can’t shake it. I was up until about 3:00 AM, I was restless and feeling overwhelmed with the idea of being a single-mother. I know that I am a strong woman, but we all have our moments.

Of course, I slipped up and ate some things that I should not have. Stress is definitely a trigger for my comfort eating, and I could not help myself, and then of course I feel guilty because of eating crap…

I know that learning to deal with my stress is a part of the journey towards a healthier lifestyle, but I wish that I was stronger.
