Question of the Day:

“I AM DOING BOOTCAMP-RUNNING AND HIIT- EXERCISES ON MY TREADMILL-EXERCISING WAY MORE THAN I DID WHEN I WAS TEACHING 1ST GRADE FULL TIME BUT I AM STILL GAINING WEIGHT.  I EAT HEALTHY BUT WHEN I TRY TO FOLLOW WHAT OTHERS ARE DOING TO LOSE WEIGHT AND FOCUSING TOOOOOO MUCH ON FOOD, I AM EATING MORE.  Torie asks: When you eat and you aren’t hungry, can you identify the emotion you are trying not to feel?  “ANXIOUS, NERVOUS, I THINK ‘AM I DOING ENOUGH AS A TEACHER?-WAIT I SHOULD BE DOING MORE VIDEOS, TEACHING ONLINE, ETC.” ARE MY OWN KIDS DOING THEIR WORK? I NEED TO CHECK IN WITH ELDERLY GRANDPARENTS. UGH I FEEL TOO HEAVY TO WEAR SHORTS. UGH…..STRESS BASICALLY IN A NUTSHELL.”   Here to help me answer today’s question is Kwavi Agbeyegbe:   Kwavi is a Weight Loss Coach and Retreat Creator that helps successful women manage their health, mindset and waistlines so that they can shine and thrive.

We can’t go out for a massage or glass of wine with girlfriends so food is the easiest reward to turn to. How do we stop using food to reward ourselves?
