Stress - hah!

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

My company may be downsizing...
The significant other is dealing with IRS issues...
His 20-something son just moved back in with him...
Sis had two car accidents in a week...
Dad had a biopsy on a facial growth and we're still waiting for results...

Just makes a gal with food issues wanna run for the........ Comfort foods - High carb or sugar to just numb everything...

Unless that gal knows that all the above issues are not really about her, and nothing she does or doesn't eat is going to impact the results of any of the above issues.

So I turned instead to the relaxation of my 10000 steps and a cold bottle of water; remained Paleo and stayed well within calorie limits.

I'm putting today in the "win" column!

    Awesome, Tink, you're my heroine! You're doing a great job on one of my biggest hurdles: separating my emotions from my food.

    Hope you hear good news on your Dad's condition. I'll be thinking about you.

    Hugs, Claudia

    It sounds like a very stressful week but look how strong you are to not use food to calm you. A big kudos to you! Hope things around you get better.

    That's a BIG W for sure. You must feel good about your choices. Sorry to hear about all the other situations, but seems you have a healthy perspective on them.

    Stay Strong
