Today did NOT go well.

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Where do I start. Emotionally it was a lousy day, and in turn, my eating was not so great. :( I woke up to my mom being snarky on an email. That started it. So I went to Starbucks to cheer myself up and work. The working happened, the cheering up, not so much.

Then I got yelled at by my stepdad for having my own (disagreeable to him) opinion. This brought on the tears, and a bout of emotional eating. I THOUGHT I'd gotten past that, apparently not so much :( By the time I was done I'd killed about half of my day's calories. All on sugary junk food. :(

With hubby's coaxing, we walked the mile & a half home. This was an exercise in contradictions and frustrations. In some ways it was good, but at the time I was just busy being aggrevated. My pants & underwear are literally falling off. I am STILL loosing weight with this baby. Mind you, I bought these a MONTH ago. NOTHING fits! Which, considering baby is still growing as he should and is healthy, is a good thing, but I'm confused. And I don't want to spend MORE money on stuff that won't fit me in another month. So I'm stuck with nothing that fits.

Then I kept getting winded walking home. I had to stop 3 times. Now, logically, I KNOW this is cause of baby. But I'm having a hard time convincing my brain that it's NOT cause I'm backsliding.

And even though we are having a fairly decent dinner, I've blown my calories for the day, so I'm over. GRRR. All in all, I mostly want today to be done. Tomorrow will be better. Has to be!

    Sounds like it might be easier to reach your goals if you clean out the pantry!

    Evie has great advice!!! and how wonderful that your clothes are falling off! how about throwing some stitches in the waistlines(yes, even your panties) to hold them up??? don't let today throw you off~you're doing awesome and you're growing a precious baby!!! I will tell you this: when I am pregnant and eat lots of sugary foods, my breathing is difficult...I use my inhaler alot though I'm not sure it helps. It has to be the sugar so reading this blog it reaffirmed for ME,too!!!! We have 15 weeks left, Momma!!!! it's going to fly so concentrate on loving yourself and then the baby will be happy and calm,too. HUGS!!!

    Good for you for blogging all this. Tomorrow will be better! You can do this!!

    Evie gave you some good advice. Also, Be extra patient with yourself. Remember your hormones are doing things that have to impact your emotions. Make a plan on what you will do when you want to eat emotionally next time. For me, I want carbs when I'm emotional but find they do not satisfy.I want to just keep eating them. But if I eat protein - like a rotisserie chicken or broiled cod -- along with veggies I really like -- it fills me up, and although I may overeat some, my cravings and hunger are gone with not much damage done. Perhaps that technique would work for you.

    Take care.

    From the top... if an email gets "snarky" .. stop reading and delete. b) if your stepfather choses to yell at you for a difference in opinion you have 2 choices.. 1) TELL him you don't care to be yelled at for the difference and/or walk away. c) clothes are falling off... you don't say how far along you are but instead of investing heavily in new maternity clothes try 2nd hand shops.. goodwill or salvation army. Trust me, they will fit again by the 8th or 9th month, at least in the waist. Of course you will get winded and be slowing down some. You are carrying a child along with extra blood and things preparing for that child. Do NOT let this get to you. It's a beautiful time .... stop and enjoy it.
    Good luck tomorrow.
    hugzzzzzzz (you sound like you need a few lol.)
