So I think I need help. My husband and I had a fight tonight (again). It wasn't really a fight, it was something went wrong, he blamed me, and stopped talking to me. Now he's in bed and I'm depressed. The problem is that I'm about to severely damage my weight loss. Every time I get like this, I start eating everything in sight. And today was already a "hollow day" where nothing seems to fill me up. I'm trying so hard not to cheat. So far, instead of eating the chocolate I have hidden in the drawer next to me, I've done 100 squats and 50 wall pushups. The problem is that if when I finish my workout after the AB section, if I hasn't worked, I'm going to eat the high calorie dark chocolate. I don't know if I can help it.

    What about trying to drink some water...perhaps ALOT of water! Or I've seen a healthier milkshake recipe using almond milk...they say it tastes like a Wendy's Frosty! Find healthier alternatives to your cravings. I know it might sound silly, but what about some relaxation exercises?? Try some deep breathing...focusing only on your breathing..No thoughts allowed! Maybe write your feelings out?-might help you feel better and have less of a 'need' for chocolate.

    Walking isn't an option. I can't leave while he's asleep and he went to sleep after he stopped talking to me. Our baby is sleeping too and I can't leave her alone. I just did my 45 situps, 30 crunches, 30 leg raises, and 35s plank and I'm still craving the chocolate. I haven't eaten it yet and I'll probably go to bed soon to keep myself from doing it. Our problem is that he thinks that even though the only time I get to do anything around the house besides entertain the child is after she's asleep. When she goes to sleep, I have to clean the house, do the dishes, do the laundry, do my workout, do my work from home, and still have the energy for what he wants to do.

    when i get under stress i walk. the fresh air helps calm you down.

    i don't no how long you've been married, when you go to bed angry and wake up angry thatt is not a solid foundation for a marriage.

    sounds like theres othr problems brewing and i would ask directly what is going on. before you ask make sure your ready for the answer.

    Did you help it? Did eating the chocolate help? When you crave like that, I think your body really needs protein. Still, I understand how powerful cravings can be. If you ate the chocolate, please don't beat yourself up. Brush yourself off and think of a better way to handle the situation. Good luck!
