The end of a cruddy week and onwards...

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Last week was a very bad week. I dropped my husband at the airport very early on Monday morning, headed home sad, and got...a speeding ticket, all before 5am! I was super tired at work, our new dog walker couldn't get my dog to come out of her crate or stop barking at her, I paid a few too many bills, so was done to a couple of hundred dollars, and then found out that my husband's company had made arrangements for him to rent a car, but without his new company credit card, ended up taking a cab, which of course, came out of our pool of very limited funds. I asked the dog walker to come back after I got off work, which she did, and she and Keiko made friends. Thank goodness. By the end of the week, I received a couple of checks I'd been waiting for, but of course, they didn't clear. I picked my husband up at the airport Friday evening....and had to admit to him that I had done a fair amount of emotional overeating during the week as I was supremely stressed out. I felt embarrassed and ashamed that I did that. And of course, I gained a pound this week. It made me feel bad about myself. And then...

I decided this week would be different. I'm planning better and going to workout better and use other avenues to relieve my stress. Stay tuned...I'll update you next week as to how it goes.

    You had a rough week and emotional eating and get the best of all of us. Maybe eating more healthy snacks throughout the day could combat emotional eating...such as taking raw almonds and carrots everywhere with you...or any 100 calorie snack of your choice. This has help with my emotional eating lately. I know you can rock the next weeks!

    No wonder you feel a little overwhelmed this week! I'm so sorry it's been so rough! Don't beat yourself up about over eating, just get it under control before it gets you! Guilt won't change it. Don't feel bad about it, you are such an awesome lady, you just had a little set back. Pick yourself up, shake yourself off and continue!

    I agree with the other ladies. Guilt will only send you into a spiral where you feel bad, eat to make yourself feel better and then feel worse.

Next week, try to pick one or two things that you can track as goals. Baby steps work.

We're rooting for you to do it! emoticon

    I always hated my husband being away, but I used to throw myself madly into spring cleaning! I was thin in those days! LOL!
Well done for making changes this week! I am so glad you are able to make progress! Keep up the good work! emoticon emoticon

    Let go of the guilt, it will only sabotage you. You did the best that you could at the time, and next week you can do even better.

    Please do not feel guilty. I know this is coming from the person who ALWAYS feels guilty. But, you know, things happen. We need to brush ourselves off, and get back on the saddle. I love that that is what you are planning on doing. At least you were honest about why you were over eating.

I hope this next week is *so* much better. I love your dog's name, and I am glad that they made friends.
