It Just Doesn't Matter

This has been one rocky week for me.
My weigh-in it tomorrow morning and the truth will be told as to whether or not I stumbled a little or a lot. I suspect all will be well, but I definitely strayed from my program. I did no strength exercises Tues-Thurs and missed my cardio yesterday. There was definitely emotional eating going on for those days as well, with calorie overages three days.
I've been under additional stress regarding #1 son and my fibromyalgia has been kicking my booty.
The nice thing about all of this is that when I succumbed to emotional eating I still made healthy choices. So yes, I was ravenous, but the things I ate were still nutritious and healthy.
The other good thing is... even though I am still dragging physically, I have no worries that I have lost my motivation to be a healthy person. I'll get back to my high level of activity and goal adherence as soon as I am able to physically. Then I think I'll try to strategize how to make better choices the next time I take a nose-dive with the fibromyalgia.
For instance, I didn't feel up to going grocery shopping to replenish my fresh fruit supply, so my fruit intake plummeted. If it's not here I can't eat it. I probably should have run to the store JUST for the fruit and left everything else for later, you know?
