Thinking about yesterdays meeting, Chris was talking about emotional eating etc. and learning to deal with our issues in other ways. I was thinking maybe that's why I feel so drained, with all of the stress of my work, and busyness of my life I am not turning to eating, though I do think about it. I have got to quit letting myself get ultra hungry, because all I think about is what I can get into my mouth. My daughter is in Girl Scouts, and there are cookies in the house. I wanted to eat a box of thin mints yesterday sooo bad! But I knew it was because I was super hungry, and tired, and have had a bit of a rough week. So I didn't touch them. I grabbed handfuls of raisins, a spoon of peanut butter, and a banana instead. Plus to top it all off I came home from the meeting yesterday to our fridge not working. Things were already thawing in the freezer, so I had to deal with that, and we had to go out and buy a new one. But I didn't stress out about it like I would have before, It is what it is, and I dealt with it. I think the most stressful part of getting a new fridge was trying to get it in the house with my husband. We don't always work so well together when it comes to things like that, lol. I did get a good strength workout in though, HA!
So anyways... these next two weeks will be different. I am going to try and be prepared as I can be, make the best choices I can, and try not to stress if my day isn't perfect. Life isn't perfect. It is what it is right?
Have a good week, I am off to deliver cookies ;)
