Family Holidays and STRESS

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

It was our Thanksgiving this weekend and I had wonderful plans for a nice family dinner and get together. Little did I know that things don't always go as planned! Boy was I in for some rude awakenings! Without getting into details I was screamed at by my teenaged daughter, found myself in the middle of some very heated argument with hubby and daughter and was trying to beeline it out of there. Where was my comfort food at a time like this? Instead of doing the things that I am learning here at SP I went straight to my ( old self ) behaviours and ate chocolate without even thinking about it. Then later when everyone was sleeping I ate another piece of cheesecake. What happened? I know that in times like this I should turn to you guys or my visual reminders and not my old habits. I have made some progress and don't want to just revert to old patterns and behaviours. This is not just an all or nothing thing for me. I know this is going to take time to make some real progress and for the real changes to happen. I don't want to come down too hard on myself for this. but I am brutally disappointed. I refuse to give up though, so today is a new day.

    We learn from such setbacks & hopefully the next time there is an upset, we are able to draw on the knowledge we gained by our previous poor reaction/choice. It all takes time to learn to redirect our ways to the healthier ones we so badly want to follow.

I suggest that you forgive yourself the choices you made while under stress & look forward with a renewed determination to make & keep the changes needed to succeed along the exciting path you are on.

It will become easier with practice! emoticon

God bless!
