Why do I do that? WHY, WHY, WHY.
There are times when I am in control of my life and I find that exercising and eating healthfully is doable.
Then life's currents sweep me off the familiar routines and I revert back to eating lots, often and calorie dense.
Right now we are waiting to have our car repaired from a hail storm (3 months ago); have just finished over a week of a contractor's crew replacing the roof, some of the siding, painting, making a mess (which they did clean up the last day);
are in the process of refinancing our mortgage, trying to get insurance claims (car, house, health) squared away, dealing with a husband in pt and having surgery at the end of the month, a daughter in pt who is looking into having neurosurgery on her back; trying to help her and her family move across country...
The long and short is I feel frazzled, scared and totally unable to handle it all.
Trigger to eat. It is not that I always pick poor things to eat, but that I eat a lot!! I also have dipped into ice cream, bread and butter, chocolate chips,
popcorn, and nut butter. Not things I usually eat.
Some things are getting back to normal and some won't for a while. I am hoping, no, I know that I am making some positive steps to get back on tract.
I don't hate myself for these poor choices. I wish I had done better, but I did a little better today and will work on making good choices tomorrow.
Do you stress eat? How do you handle it?
Peace and serenity. Success to us all on our journey to better health.
