I started binge eating a few weeks ago
Just thinking about being stuck in the house was making me feel like I’ve lost control, that I couldn’t do all of those things that I love to do. I gained 5 lbs in a VERY short period of time (in addition to the 25 that I had put back on in the past 6 months). I told you – I AM OUT OF CONTROL.
How to stay fit when you’re stuck in the house
I’m not delusional enough to think that I can just quit binging cold turkey. But, I do know that I can replace one behavior with another one. So, I’ve decided to search for the best online fitness programs and see if I can switch my negative behavior to one more positive. Enjoying your workouts with online workout programs makes sense right now. It will help us stay healthier, fit and enjoying something like yoga online could be the perfect way to start or end your day.
Maybe a personal online fitness coach is something you’d benefit from or if you’re like me, you prefer the feeling of camaraderie (even if it’s online). So, I did a little research to find
