I can be stressed or fat & stressed
Thursday, February 21, 2013
Today was super tough. I've been under a ton of pressure @ work and today a project I've been working on for months ran into some unexpected challenges. It nearly derailed me.
I was about to find anything & everything possible to shove in my mouth to bring down the anxiety level but I stopped and thought "I can be stressed or fat & stressed...fat & stressed would be way worse..." So I stopped...regrouped...found the most simple tasks to be done on my desk...had some lunch...& convinced myself that I'll figure things out.
I did eat a normal (not weight loss) number of calories but today was a day to maintain & that's enough for me today.
I had a good work out...turned up the headphones super loud and de-stressed ...
Life is never easy...days are hard...but they are worse when I'm overweight.
So today makes 5 binge free days & I really felt like I earned each of them...one of you told me practice makes it easier...today was a marathon...I hope my brain can give me a "rest day from wanting to emotionally eat"... I could use one!!!
