Because of Stress I made a mistake

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

I was stressed yesterday not knowing if any of my relatives were in the Boston Marathon. I was calling my family. I was feeling so stressed that I ate a half a cup of ice cream. I made a mistake and I stopped myself. I found out the information that I needed to feel better. No one in my family was near the explosions. I am getting better than I was. I measured a portion out before eating. I really did not need to eat it at all. I should not turn to food to feel better. I should have simply called my family and asked for support.

    I'm glad your family is okay. I agree with the others here. You MEASURED the ice cream and stuck to one serving! That is HUGE!


    Do not think for one minute you did anything "wrong" because you ate the ice cream under the circumstances under which you ate it. You did fine. It is good to examine the situation, but I don't see a mistake at all!

    Just today I was writing about the difference between a slip and relapse. A slip, you go off plan because of a situation but you want to get back on plan as soon as possible. A relapse is when you start procrastinating until monday or next month or new years. This definitely sounds like a slip. There's a spark motivational quote too, that says something like a slip means you got distracted or too busy. Relapse means you gave up on your health.

    So glad your family is OK
    Even though you think you made a mistake, you stopped yourself before going to far... that is a step forward in my book.

    Glad your family is okay. Also proud of your decision and the way you handled the stress - choosing food may not be an IDEAL choice but when you measure an appropriate serving, track it, and stop before you go on a wild binge, it is NORMAL HEALTHY behavior for a reasonable slim and fit person to do.

    Glad to know your loved ones are OK. Actually, I'm impressed that you stopped at a half cup. That's not a heck-uv-a lot you know. Pat yourself on the back for containing your "mistake," and enjoy the relief of knowing your family was spared such a tragedy as happened in Boston.
