Two days of the plan effortlessly completed. I'm exercising, eating perfectly, not even getting hungry. An ideal start.

But my mood...
My mood is off.
This isn't good.
If I can't maintain my mental state I know I won't be able to maintain my diet.

I've been working like a trojan at the gym. It has been feeling great. Hard, but great. But several times I have almost burst into tears on the treadmill. I haven't felt upset and there have been no precipitants, but I've been getting these massive sudden surges of emotion. I guess it's endorphins, but this doesn't normally happen and I don't like it. And tonight I feel terrible. Looking around at my room and just being swamped by this immense guilt. Receipts and tags litter my floor from the shit I have bought that I don't need or really even want. Consumption. Fuck it's so gross. There are a couple of little gifts my mum has bought me and when I see them I want to hurl because I feel so completely undeserving. It sickens me, that she loves me. I am a leech. I owe her so much. SO much. I'm thousands of dollars behind in rent that she has been covering for me, and I don't even try to make it up. I continue to fritter away unearned cash on frivolous shit. Consume consume consume. I really fucking disgust myself.

I'm really really feeling it right now. Guilt guilt disgusting fucking self-loathing horrible guilt. It worries me. I don't want my mind to crumble under my new regime.

  1. You know what, I did the same thing when I was a student/unemployed and I also felt really guilty. I would buy all this stuff for myself but I would also ask for help to pay my phone bill or some kind of thing that I should have paid myself. Then my family would buy me stuff when they came and visited me and it does feel awful but I know now that I am working, I don't do that anymore. When you don't have a lot of money coming in I think you should also be happy too. Now, for example with my Mum, when she comes for xmas, Me and A pay for everything, which makes me feel better. All she has to do is come herself and not bring anything at all. I don't think there is an easy answer for this because it's finding your feet that's the hard thing. It will happen, sometimes it's just takes a little longer than you anticipated. Take care :-)
