Truly a much better day....until it ended. Even then, I suprise myself sometimes! I got home from work around 7:30 excited to try the coconut oil I had just purchased for dinner. However, a phone call changed all of that. My 92 year old grandmother fell and broke her hip and cheek bone and was in the emergency room waitin for surgery. As I ran out the door, I thought how my cousins and family would be there and would probably want to get something to eat, and I wasn't that hungry and didn't want to cheat and.....well, on and on my mind raced, all the time worrying about my grandma as well. The other thoughts that came to mind were about my usual reaction to stress. Normally, I'd be turning to food to help manage my stress, but this time I became aware of what my body was actually telling me and recognizing that I truly don't need food when I'm stressed! Yet another step forward in the lessons I'm learning about myself!
PS....My grandma came through the surgery well. She is a tough little lady!
