Down but not out
Tuesday, January 26, 2010
We had some bad news yesterday, nothing life-threatening just a business dealing that is taking up WAY more time and energy than it should.
When I got the news of the latest round of delays and excuses the first thing I wanted to do was have a glass of wine. (I guess I am an emotional drinker as well as an emotional eater!) But then I thought, "And how would this change what's happening?" That, plus I would have to drive 10+ miles out of the county to the liquor store...so I just settled down. TC had two vodka tonics so you know that not drinking was a BIG VICTORY FOR ME and I'm giving myself lots of credit!!!!
I ate at the high end of my calorie range yesterday, did NOT eat dinner at the table and did NOT take my vitamins or eat slowly and mindfully.
However I am back down to 160 (YAY!) and am gunning to get in the 150's again very soon.
I'm really going to make this happen, and I feel that my resistance muscle is INDEED getting stronger the more mini-victories I am able to string together. Drinking or overeating NEVER changes any of the stressful events in our lives, and the relief it brings is far overshadowed by the remorse of the following day.
So today I am soldiering on!
Have a great day everyone, and give yourself LOTS OF CREDIT for your own mini-victories!
