Disaster Averted!

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Yesterday, I was real depressed.

Sort of like in that commercial:

Nothing was going right,

Disappointments were mounting,

That stupid plateau I'm on won't end,

And I just wanted to throw in the towel,

find the nearest Mexican restaurant,

And drown my sorrows

in the biggest plate of nachos I could find.

I didn't, but I really wanted to.

I just realized again it wasn't worth it.

Because of how I'd feel afterwards.

It'd be one step in a downward spiral

That would put me deeper into the misery of the hole I was in.

I feel better today than I would have been if I had given in, and for that, I'm thankful and blessed.

    You are doing great! I have bad days like this too, but I look past it. Sometimes we feel low and want to eat the wrong stuff, but I can't eat my disappointments only work them off. Love yourself! You can do this, you won't fall into that hole.

    Funny that, I've been craving nachos all week. Do you know how many calories and sodium those things have?! Yikes! Glad disaster was averted!

    What a wonderful way to express your feelings. I hope you are feeling much better today.

I wonder if winter has anything to do with the doldrums because I am so tired of ice and snow I want to eat the nearest snowbank.
