I'm an emotional eater. I eat to celebrate and to comfort and to stuff. I know this and I accept that changing this is a process. I need to find other ways to celebrate, comfort, and deal with life events and making those changes will take time. I have to accept this journey and keep trying.
Recently I fell off the weight loss track. I was off for a few days due to disappointment at a plateau and then I was sick. But, after not tracking for 4 days I realized how important this journey was to me, and I started doing it again. If I just keep doing that, I'll reach my goal eventually.

Having a challenging time getting back on track? Remember baby steps. When struggling with something, exercise, water, healthy eating, go back a step or three. Try to establish good habits again, no matter how small they seem, and build on your successes. It won't be long before you're back on track again.
Wall push-ups are a good way to get more upper-body exercise when you may not have time for floor push-ups, or maybe you're not so great at floor push-ups. They benefit chest, shoulders, arms/triceps, and core muscles. Step back just a little (safely) to "lean into the wall" more, and make the push-ups a bit more challenging. If you need to protect a wall from natural oil from your hands, try wearing non-slip or rubber gloves.
Each song is avg 4 minutes so for each song do 10 sit ups and after the 10 sit ups breathe until the song ends and do it again for 3 more songs :) in less than 20 minutes you will do 40 sit ups and have no breathing issues
