A bad day...

Saturday, June 16, 2012

Usually I don't take my venting to the internet, but considering I've been sitting here scarfing on Doritos for the last half hour, I need to do something else with my hands!

I have been having a down-in-the-dumps day. A little is because of some things in my life that seem to be falling apart, but also today I found out that one of my former professors/colleagues passed away yesterday. I was not particularly close to him, but it still feels horrible. I can't imagine what his wife and children are going through right now. I can't seem to shake the gloominess that's settled in since I heard the news. I've been trying to keep myself in check, but like I said, I hit the Doritos pretty hard (not to mention the Klondike bar before that, and the Dairy Queen burger and fries I had for lunch). So now I'm also feeling sluggish and bad from eating so much crap.

Well, at least it's all off my chest...I think I'll make a pot of tea. That will not only be comforting but will also help flush all the junk out of my system.

    When I have the desire to overeat I use the word HALT, H for am I hungry if so drink water,or have fat free yogurt,or fruit. A-am I angry, write about it get it out of your system, L- am I lonely ,call someone ,visit a neighbor, T- am I tired, take a cat nap listening to some music you like. Hope this helps!

    Aw tomorrow is a new day - only you have the power to make it a good one. Also, whenever I'm sad, I try to go for a walk - it's light cardio plus it helps me clear my mind. If you need anyone to talk/vent to, I'm here :) Hope you have a fantastic day tomorrow!
