Hello junk food, my old friend

Wednesday, July 01, 2015

If you're all just joining me, this is my first official blog since I returned. I have tracked for the last three weeks, even when I wasn't stellar. I quit drinking diet soda in the morning too and have felt pretty good.

Monday morning my husband had a serious case of vertigo. After 3 hours of waiting and arguing he ended up in an ambiance. He was admitted. Ct scans, blood work, egg, ultrasounds, MRI. He is remarkably healthy! He started feeling better yesterday and today he came home. I am blogging because of MY reaction to the stress.

I had multiple offers of food and healthy option but instead had a twiX bar and diet soda for lunch. When I got home late last night, daughters had Olive Garden waiting. I ate some salad, half my meal and one breadstick. I stayed within my range yesterday, remarkably. Today on way to hospital I wanted something bad and fat and hot and a soda! So I went to Burger King and got a breakfast sandwich, hash browns and a diet soda. It was delicious. And very high calorie! Lunch was a McDonald's kids meal. And a soda. That's the bad news. The great news is husband is home and recovering and doing really well!

Observations:

Eating like crap begets eating like crap.
Soda makes you crave other crap
While, it is tempting to think you're treating yourself or you deserve to drink or eat something crappy, you really aren't doing yourself any favors.

I'm over it. Because I DESERVE better than I have been giving myself. And junk food doesn't love me. And I don't love it...and we need to just stop.

    Oh I hope your husband got a clean bill of health after all that! Wow. You know I do the same thing when I'm scared, angry, or generally feel out of control of a situation. So my eating gets out of control. I rarely do fast food, but manage plenty of damage in my own home pantry! Just last night I was thinking I should vow to not eat when I'm angry or feeling powerless. That, alone, should keep the bingies at bay.

    You'll get right back on track because you have never quit! I know that about you, and you know it, too.

    Bounce back quickly! emoticon
