Food in time of stress!!

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

I had been tracking my food faithfully for the last three days since I started back using SP. I was even proud of myself Sunday after church, because we were given wonderful cookies! I chose a chocolate chip one, and it looks and smells so good! But, I brought it home and stuck it in my freezer!! This way it was out of sight, and I would have to thaw it before I can eat it. It is still in there!
Although, yesterday afternoon I wanted it so bad! I was a nervous wreck because we had policemen, and sheriff officers all over our small town! There was even a blackhawk Homeland Security helicopter circling our neighborhood! There had been a double murder in a town about 20 minutes from here, and someone thought the man who did it was in our town! I see a post on facebook that says there is a dangerous man in La Conner, and right after that I get a text from my youngest daughter that says she and her soccer team are locked in their locker room showers to be safe from the gunman!
I get even more upset because I like my kids with me at home when something like this is going on! So I stay in contact with my daughter through texting, I stay informed of the situation on Facebook and KOMO news 4! They end up finding the guy in the town where the murders took place! Thank the lord!
After an hour, we were finally allowed out of our homes, and I got to pick my daughter up! What a relief! I was still shaking my butt off at this point! lol
But, when I started tracking my food last night, even after all the turmoil, I had only gone over by a little bit! Usually I would have eaten the kitchen clean!! I was so happy, and then this morning I was down another pound!! Hoo Rah!
Today, though, I am being much better! Staying within the calorie goals, and already did my workout since yesterdays was put on lock-down...lol!
