Getting rid of frustration.

Friday, June 14, 2013

You may have read yesterday's blog. That's one way to get rid of frustration, blogging, venting, writing it down. I also emailed the companies, hopefully I'm not the only one having some of these issues so that they're getting more opinions than mine. (I called Oreo once about my opinion about red and winter... Red and Christmas maybe, but not winter, blue is winter, have you seen snow? Winter Oreos are still red.)

Unfortunately the frustration was also taken out on more ribs than I normally would have eaten for dinner. Then I had a piece of cake that I mad two days prior, for some reason I was going through my kitchen and ended up making a cake. It was bad enough I probably am bloated just from the Quarter Pounder I had from lunch. I also had a Pearson's Nut Roll, at least I got protein in my candy bar. I also got my monthly food box from NatureBox and don't seem to have will power over certain items in it.

It's bad when I'm eating when I'm upset. I'm not really tasting anything at that point. I'm on auto-pilot at that point. I'm back up those 2 pounds I lost. Well, at least I'm still in my maintenance range. It'll probably get peed out by Tuesday anyhow.

A good way of frustration probably would have been walking it out. I am always feeling better after a couple of miles, when I start to slow down, you know I'm feeling better. I never did get out yesterday.

A good thing I found is one of my secret reality shows updated on one of my video watching subscriptions. I love Hoarders! I discovered another season unlocked, so I watched two of them last night. I'll probably watch more today, plus I might clean something too. The little bonus of watching that show is that it makes me want to clean something. I'll have my clothes hung up and a toilet cleaned out by the end of the day today.

I also got some more gardening in last night. I picked up two more of those potato pots this week, so I'll have a ton of potatoes by the end of the season. My peas are starting to produce, my purple beans are flowering and all my plants in my balcony garden are growing well. Even my peppers are showing their sprouts. Gardening always soothes me. I haven't had to water them much this year, it's been raining like crazy this season so far. Usually, by this time, I'm watering them daily. I've had to water most of them only once since I planted them a month and a half ago. I even picked up a different variety of basil, it's a lime basil. It'll be new to me!

So although I did do some frustration eating, I also did some good things to get rid of my frustration too. I have many things to do, including video games, I did that too... Lego Lord of the Rings... So that I can get out of the funk that is people who don't think about your feelings. Although I did not have a good day yesterday, I did things about it. I think I managed to get my words out to the right people and managed to lose myself in places I enjoy, so I didn't do too much damage to my body in the end.

Thank you for being one of the places I can get my feeling out!

I will have to start emailing the companies about the great things they do too to counter the bad things I get occasionally. If we only tell them the bad things, the won't know what they're doing right. I'll have to start doing that at least once a month to remind myself why I use certain brands in certain places. One person can make a difference, I know I managed certain brands on the shelves of certain stores before.

Today's Holidays: World Blood Donor Day, Pop Goes the Weasel Day, Flag Day and Strawberry Shortcake Day (I already had the strawberries, I probably should skip the cake).

    My tomatoes and peppers are very far behind! But they are growing, so I'll be patient.

    Yes, one person can make a difference. I find too many people complain about companies about will not take action. Good for you for doing that!

    Frusteration eating is not good...but I have been there.....the walk would have helped way more.....

    I like the idea about emailing the great things too...

    As a wise one once said....there would be no good without understand the one you have to understand the other...

    Same here...I love summer, that way I can get out and take it out on my garden and the weeds in my flower beds.

    I love summer - one reason is that when I get really frustrated, I take it out on pulling weeds! emoticon
