Emotional Meltdown

Thursday, January 27, 2011

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 on Sparks and read some motivational blogs..then still 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!

    I'm so impressed! You dealt with the situation by exercising, NOT eating??!!!!!! You are officially my new role model.

    Fantastic! I love that you took a bad day and used it to motivate you to exercise and burn the frustration instead of drowning it.

I usually would have done the same. Have a drink. Cry. Eat. Have another drink. Feel happier. Wake up sick.

I have had a few rough days lately and couldn't wait to get to the gym and just "run it out" That was super encouraging to me, that my first thought was "I want to go work this out!" instead of "Gosh, what do I have to drink at home?"

    You handled your day perfectly! I haven't had a "bad" day yet. I have only been working this program for about three weeks, so I know it will happen. I hope I make it through it as well as you did.
