Started the day off well. Didn't have time to make usual breakfast so I grabbed a protein bar instead. Ran an errand with my son's fiancée. Planned on going to the mall and then it happened. The phone call from my son that he wasn't feeling well and need to go the hospital. Unfortunately this is not unusual as he suffers from Crone's Disease. His hospital stays are brief but draining for all concerned. As I waited for the phone call from him to pick him up to come home guess where I headed? Yes, the pantry too scrounge up any food I could find. Of course it didn't end there, I went out to dinner later and had salad and pizza. I know that isn't too bad if you have control and know when to stop. I guess this is my ah-ha moment that I cannot let food comfort me when I am so stressed about a situation I have no control over. I need to learn to control this somehow. Today is a new day and I am getting ready to go to a yoga class. I have not seen the inside of the gym for a very long day. One step at a time and a new realization that I have to substitute a healthy alternative to cope with situations I cannot control.
