I got stressed AND I ate soup?? who is this person

Friday, January 11, 2013

So yesterday was one of those days. Traffic, clients, everyone needed me and no one was happy about it. I had work I absolutley had to do when I got home and my toddler was pounding on the keyboard and crying while I tried to type and important document (husband stuck in traffic).

So I made soup when I got hom from work. I was starving, crabby, and tired. I found chicken rice soup, it looked very comforting, I cooked it up and ate most of it. Then I had my planned quesedilla for dinner with more beans and salsa than cheese, cause that makes me feel happier these days, and did i menetion I had thrown together a healthy lunch in the AM and taken a banana for breakfast...

So what all this added up to was a crabby-frustrated day, and tiring-verge-of -ears night, with venting to husband and questioning my work schedule...and I had a kemps frozen yogurt pop for comfort and relaxation when it was all over...

Although I have stopped my food journal for now due to my perfectionistic-meany tendencies, I jotted everything down this morning becuase I couldnt really believe that this had happened. And I felt very full last night...all that stuff about veggies and fiber and small meals actually works? Geez I've been rolling my eyes at that stuff for years, not because I didnt love healthy food, I do love the taste of most of it, but becuase I thought I could never give up comfort eating omn THOSE days.

I am giving myself a little hug today, to go with the big hug I gave my self yeasterday. Yay me.

    Yes, filling up on veggies really works! I fill at least half my plate with steamed veggies, and 4-5 oz of lean protein. I stay away from complex carbs at dinner. It helps keep me full.

    Good luck!
