Today... scratch that This week has been stressful.
My husband started a new job on Wednesday. This job pays WAY more than his last, but it's a 45 minute commute and this... is not awesome for me. I've gotten so used to him being his own boss at his last job, making it possible for him to pick his own schedule and to come home in case of emergencies. That job was bad though and he needed to get out so this is a very good change, but I'm just so nervous about it. I have a fear a vehicles, which is why I am 23 without ever having a driver's license.
The very night before my husband started his new job our stove decided to kick the bucket... We won't be buying a new one any time soon seeing as how we've got property tax due next month...I have a slow cooker and a cheap skillet so it's not the end of the world, but I never EVER realized how important a stove top is when you're throwing cheap ingredients together to make goolashes because you're too broke to afford specific recipe ingredients!
AND lastly I found out there was a mistake in my financial budget and next quite a few bills in October are going to have to go unpaid until Hubby's new job starts paying him... I wish we had saved for this transition, but this company called him out of the blue so this wasn't planned. This is just a hick up. Nothing is going to be so late that anything will be shut off, but I'm stressed out about it all...
SOOOOOO all that stress hit me hard today. I tried hard to turn my back on it, but my inner binger went NUTS!!! I ate steadily from 8 AM to 4 PM... Nothing too large, mainly snacking to an extreme. I've hit my daily calorie limit and still have dinner to prepare for Hubby.
I won't let this binge fest ruin me though!!! I was sitting on the couch at 4 feeling HORRIBLE about myself and then I decided to get up, move the coffee table and walked a mile with Walk Away the Pounds! Then I took my dog on a quarter mile lap!!!!!!!!!!!! I didn't burn as much as I ate today but I did something. I didn't just sit there stuck in a binge. I exercised despite my attitude and I am extremely proud of that!!!!!!!!!!!!!
