I just had the most amazing trip! I went to see my husband for 10 days after 8 months apart. Being back in Egypt was amazing - and I realized just how much it feels like home to me. It's not that nothing had changed, it's just that the changes didn't seem to matter. I had a wonderful time with my husband - the whole thing was unbelievable.
And then on Monday night I came home. I did really well on my vacation. But I left Egypt with a lot of emotion, and came home to a very busy, very stressful time at work. Between all the different points of tension in my life, I've spent the last 5 days eating worse than ever. So much for my confidence that I had addressed my issues of emotional eating. Cheesies, chocolate, cheese in quantity, fried food. All those things I had learned to moderate or remove from my diet.
And now I'm struggling to get back on track. I need to keep moving this forward. I got so many great comments when I was in Egypt, and it felt so good to be active and healthy. It's time to reign this in and get going again. I've already done great things - it's time to do some more!
The problem is that I sound more confident than I feel.
