I can be stressed or fat & stressed

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Today was super tough. I've been under a ton of pressure @ work and today a project I've been working on for months ran into some unexpected challenges. It nearly derailed me.

I was about to find anything & everything possible to shove in my mouth to bring down the anxiety level but I stopped and thought "I can be stressed or fat & stressed...fat & stressed would be way worse..." So I stopped...regrouped...found the most simple tasks to be done on my desk...had some lunch...& convinced myself that I'll figure things out.

I did eat a normal (not weight loss) number of calories but today was a day to maintain & that's enough for me today.

I had a good work out...turned up the headphones super loud and de-stressed ...

Life is never easy...days are hard...but they are worse when I'm overweight.

So today makes 5 binge free days & I really felt like I earned each of them...one of you told me practice makes it easier...today was a marathon...I hope my brain can give me a "rest day from wanting to emotionally eat"... I could use one!!!

    Sounds like you are working it out, making good choices, and thinking it through before getting to the point of no return! emoticon

    Great point and great title. I needed to read that about the choice between stressed or fat and stressed.
