No One Came!

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

I had an emotional eating episode today too. Was supposed to do my presentation today and I scheduled the afternoon for, passed on a bath, cuz it was cutting the time close, cut my walk short, really felt like doing a 5th lap, but time again. SEt everything up, and not a single soul came. I had a little irritable bowel while anxiously waiting. Even the Sobeys lady said to tell my coordinator she did a lousy job of advertising.... Then we went to Superstore for Tender Tuesday and I ate 3 pieces of chicken tenders, even though it was 3pm and I had my lunch at 12 noon...didn't help the belly, but that's what an emotional eater does to bury a hurt, isn't it. At least dh didn't try to undermine me, he didn't have to.....

well, wanna go lie down and lick my wounds over the presentation disappointment. And I didn't get over my "first time jitters" either!

But, I need to celebrate that I didn't just leave it at that though. I went to Superstore and asked them and got much better reception. Also went to Library and spoke with the Senior Events coordinator and she has her fall schedule all set up but would be interested in one for after Jan., and maybe even the 6 week Pain Management one I am taking the conference in Moncton for. so haven't give up all hope...

    The last library Zumba class was only attended by two friends.Little disappointing when several rsvped that they were coming.

Sorry no one showed but like all challenges, they make us stronger. At least that is what I tell myself when I miss my kitty..

Sweet dreams emoticon

    That's so disappointing, Lila, and it wouldn't help your IBS symptoms... I hope you'll be able to see it as a temporary glitch in the road, just a terrible day for no-shows. It's bound to be easier and more successful for you next time... emoticon

    You really are having some trying days! Don't be too hard on yourself ; many people ( myself included) try to bury disappointment with a slip up in food. Think of all the great choices you have been and will continue to make. You handled the "no shows" very well by going out and seeing who else may be interested. Stay strong and positive! emoticon

    Hang in there, Lila. I know it must have been very disappointing to you to be prepared to share your knowledge and experience, and have a no show. Your time will come. Sounds like you've made inroads to better venues - good for you!

    I am so sorry for the disappointment you felt. Give yourself so much credit for looking at ways to improve the situation next time (great work) So glad to hear you haven't given up that shows real internal strength on your part.

    I am so sorry for your disappointment today. hugs.

But I am also happy to see you be positive in that you went out to see about presenting elsewhere...Good for you! Perhaps print off a few simple flyers with date, time, and place, does have to be a lot of them, take a few walks around different places around town and staple them to a telephone pole or ask to put in shop windows........then you would know that there was some advertising in place and soon enough for more people to see and attend. Just a thought, as that is what we do for our Lions events, even tho we have it posted in the local paper.

    Sorry to hear of your difficult day! I too am an emotional eater (feeling that way as I type) and I completely understand the anxiety aspect. I hope you're next round goes much better for you and stay strong!
