The reason you haven’t done it yet boils down to one thing: you are seeking COMFORT.
You are either using fatty, salty, sugary foods to cope with anxiety and stress and they provide a source of calm and comfort during the day, or you are seeking comfort from the “discomfort” from exercise.
Here’s two ways out of this:
1) Seek alternative ways of comfort. Join a support group, call a friend, get a massage and soothe the anxiety in other ways instead of foods/drink.
2) Join a gym or class for social support to exercise with or a running group or personal trainer to get through the initial “discomfort” phase until you reach that exercise high and you miss it and it actually becomes a way of coping with stress.
Find substitutes for your favorite recipes (Like my Decadently Free Desserts recipe book).
And then set a time goal of doing something for 90 days. That is enough time to see results and set new habits.
