Boy Did I Blow It!
Monday, February 15, 2010
It's Valentine's Day...and my 8-yr-old grandson, Anthony is here. I live in a housing authority high-rise for elderly and disabled people. There was an ice cream social this afternoon, and I took Anthony, thinking I would be just fine drinking coffee. HA! I had both a sundae an an orange float. Later I gave in to the "I blew my diet, so I may as well eat." lie. A LIE it is too. It doesn't matter what else I ate, and believe it or not I stayed within my calorie range, my fat, cholesterol, carbohydrate, and sodium ranges. I didn't eat enough protein...which isn't unusual for me. Most of that makes me feel better about what I did. However, I ate nothing but JUNK after breakfast which was small and healthy.
I've been struggling with depression and the sweets made me feel better, which blows my idea that maybe I really didn't have a problem with emotional eating.
Okay, " my name is Sarah and I'm an emotional eater." "Hi, Sarah!" Oh, wrong program. Anyhow, I could use your support. Help, ideas, encouragement...whatever you want to throw my way...as long as it's not Junk Food!
I will start over again in the morning...and I am not eating any more tonight.
Happy Valentine's Day!
