Last night I was feeling depressed. I really miss my husband and my youngest son, and I am ready for them to come home. I did something I shouldn't have done, I got out the Ritz crackers, and the peanut butter, and ate the whole roll of crackers. Totally blew my calorie count for the day, not to mention the hard work I put in at the gym.

After eating the crackers and peanut butter, I sat there, and asked myself why I did it? I got up, put the peanut butter back up in the cupboard, threw away the wrapper from the crackers, and started to clean my house. I managed to get 3 loads of laundry done, dishes, swept the kitchen floor, and straightened out the living room.

I did not sleep very well. Only managed to get 4 hours of sleep. Today is a new day. Going to start over, and have a better day. Going to finish cleaning up my house(vaccume, and mop), go and pay the rent, buy a couple of mouse traps, go to the gym, out to lunch with a friend, and when the boys get home hang their bird feeders.

Only four more days I will be going back up to Portland to pick up my husband and son from the airport. I am just praying that the passes are not going to be that bad, we have had snow the past couple of days. I know that God will guide me across the pass, and get me to my destination safely.

Quote of the day:
Depression is rage spread thin.
George Santayana

Have a beautiful Monday.

  You used food to comfort yourself, that happens, it's past history. Good for you for realizing it and stopping. That's the important part. You'll make it just fine. Hope your trip is ok, up here in Saskatchewan we are still dealing with blizzards so I feel for you. Have a great day today. emoticon

    We all go through things like this, honey. Don't let it get you down. When you feel the urge to splurge - hey, that rhymes! :) - try this:

Pray in the Name of Jesus for God's help. Say, Lord, Your Word says I have strength for all things through Jesus, so I'm askingYou in the Name of Jesus to give me the strength to NOT eat this (enter food item). Thank you Lord for helping me to overcome my appetite! Appetite you settle down now! :)

And if you do give in, just start over immediately.

Re the passes you have to go through, keep these in mind:

Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9

Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you. Deuteronomy 31:8

You are all around me—in front and in back— and have put Your hand on me. Psalm 139:5

    I agree with the others. It's over and done so we move on and start again. Have a safe trip.

    What PENNYLYNN73 said is so true! None of us are perfect, so let the mistake go and move on! Maybe 2 crackers and a little peanut butter next time? :) Safe trip when you pick up your guys! emoticon

    Donna, first, thank you for sharing. It's hard to share that part of yourself. Second, you did it. it's over. let it go and start over. As we learn this new way of life, we have to remember that old habits die hard. I am an emotional eater... I know EXACTLY what it's like to just consume food and then ask myself afterwards what the heck I was thinking. you didn't ruin anything. In that moment, you made a choice. In the next moment, you will make a different are still beautiful, still worth it and still going to reach your goals. emoticon
