Before you eat anything, ask yourself "Will this fix anything or am I eating because I'm following my plan? Will this make me feel better, or is it part of my plan?"
If you don't already pre-track, do it today and stick to it. No matter what. Have plenty of low cal snacks handy, like fruit and veggies.
And get some cardio in if you can. Tell your daughter you are sorry for over-reacting and see if she wants to go outside and play, go for a walk, whatever might interest her and get you moving and your mind off your problem.
If working out relaxes you then go for it. There are so many things you can do, take a nap, a nice long bath, go for a walk/run, or what ever else you like to do just remove your self from the situation could help too.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.
Exercising ALWAYS helps me deal with anger and frustration. If you have access to a punching bag picture whatever it is you're mad at while punching it. Or slam a medicine ball on the ground doing the Same thing. If not jog or walk as fast as possible while listening to some fast pushed music. Picture yourself in your favorite vacation spot while you're walking or jogging. Go as long as you can without over doing it. I SWEAR you'll feel better afterwards and you'll get in a great workout too.
I went to the grocery store to get something (plus a water). I used some cash and I was going to use my debit for the rest. Come to find out that my account was overdrawn a significant amount. Needless to say, I was (am) pissed off. My husband was a little more naive to how much we actually had. I was more careful this time. Anyway, I walked home (2.13 miles round trip) and wondered what the hell happened. Maybe I need to do some more exercise to get rid of this anger and stuff I have. I don't want to snap at anyone today -- I already at my daughter for something extremely stupid. I need some encouraging words or something to keep me on track. Not sure how things are going to go today.
