As you may have read, today was a stressful day. When the full impact of my crummy situation hit me, I reacted: I cried, I yelled at myself, I threw a few things, and had myself a nice meltdown.
But here's what I didn't do: calm my stress with food. And I didn't even want to. Success! (And believe me, even in the moment I realized this was big).
|Bad day? I'll take about a million of these.|
SO often over the past few months I have reacted to the many stresses in my life by giving myself a temporary shot of comfort in the form of something delicious. I don't even want to think about how many times I have been dealt a mid-morning blow at work and then ditched my healthy lunch for a slice of cheap pizza from the hole in the wall on the corner. And it never works!
And so today ends in a MUCH better way than it began. Crisis averted, and I didn't add insult to injury with a big pile of chocolate. Today, I made the best choice.
Boo for losing my wallet -- but hooray for small victories!
