Day #7, stressed and crazy busy but I'm dealing.

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

I've been on the go since 5:30am...finally sat down at 1pm for a rest. Wired and tired. Husband headed off for two nights away at the fire and I took a Valium last night so I wouldn't lie and obsess/worry. Gave me odd dreams and I'm still feeling sluggish. Plus I think I am fighting the "less fuel" feeling where I don't have all the excess food fuel now.

Annddddd.....a raging sweet tooth. I wanted cheesecake or ice cream something fierce. So when we finally got home I had a Moccona latte and 45 grams of gluten free muesli and that did the trick. A victory of sorts - usually I would just give in to the cheesecake or ice cream and call it good. I even had it all rationaled out that we're having soup for dinner and it's reasonably low calorie. ;) I'll save the treats for tomorrow night when my daughter comes over for her birthday dinner. Then I'll have some cake and ice cream and won't fret. emoticon

    Next time try fruit!

Having comfort food in the form of what I would call toxic treats, is a normal path to mask worry.

The valium might have put your body to sleep but your mind is active 24/7/365. Of course you had crazy dreams! LOL

Try meditation or yoga. Look at your worry dispassionately. Watch the thoughts go by one by one like a freight train. Smile gently and then move on.

The best way to support a loved one is to be good to yourself.

Being concerned is a covert way of not trusting them. Everyone does this so don't beat yourself up by self-sabotage!

SMALL slice of cake and ice cream!
