Yesterday was my first day "back on the wagon". If there was ever a time that I'd be called an emotional eater- it was yesterday. I did good almost all day. I drank lots of water while at work and avoided snacking. Then my boss sent me a naggy email. I tried to see the positive side of this situation... Finding it hard to do.... Decide to burn off my frustration at the gym. Then as I'm driving to the gym I get a message from the person watching our kids telling me they've 'planned a big last minute dinner party and wanted to get to the store, but it's okay if you go to the gym still, just how long are you going to be?' Now my gym time is cut in half. GRRR! Then I go to pick up the kids to find out that hubby forgot to leave behind car seats. Can I pick them up from him? Nope. His car is parked on one side of the valley and he's working on the other side. So again- GRRRR as I'm strapping my two year old into the only thing I can find (a booster meant for an 8yr old) and just buckling in my 5yr old without a car seat... Stress and careful driving all the way home. The cherry on top, was when I realized that hubby also had the birthday presents in his trunk for a party we had to be to in an hour- SERIOUSLY?!
The result of this horrible day was me eating a cookie, a donut and 3 fried tacos- putting me over my calories by about 500 for the day. Emotional eating? Yep. I'd say that is exactly what I was doing..... Ugh....
All day I tried hard to focus on the positives- and just found it difficult with the day.
Now- day 2 has got to be better! Wish me luck!
