Yesterday I had an emotional meltdown. I was here at home..alone. Some things had happened and I was feeling reeeaaallly low. So, I vented. Now, I am normally a mild mannered person, nothing usually 'gets' to me...I was at a point of no return. I screamed, yelled and threw stuff...then cried...got on Sparks and read some motivational blogs..then still crying...got my exercise clothes on, tied my shoes and exercised for about an hour.
I felt much, much better. I would usually eat in this type of situation. "Stuffing my feelings" literally. Then I would usually have myself a little afternoon cocktail followed by more uncontrolled eating..then more uncontrolled drinking ending up with a headache and stomachache and regret.
I did not over eat...I did not drink alcohol. I tracked my food and fitness and stayed with it...all day...Successful. Proud. Humbled. Thank God.
I am so thankful for this site. I love the encouragement. I hope to be an encouragement to others.
Have a wonderful Day!
