Moving on

Today I got a little stressed and allowed myself to find relief in a piece of cake and a munchkin.  It happend, but I learned from it.

I learned that I was seeking release from frustration. I consciously took out the cake and first said I would have a bite, I went back for another bite which turned into a piece and a munchkin. I'm fine about it and I'm moving on now. I have already forgiven myself for not dealing with the stress properly.

Besides being stressed I was also pretty hungry. I was babysitting my niece and nephew and things got hectic so I didn't have a chance to grab my morning snack. So my nephew left and my niece is sleeping so I grabbed the first sweet treat I could see.

My lunch is now heating up so hopefully once I get a good meal in me I will be back to myself. I just read this morning in the book The Rules of Normal Eating, that even normal eaters mess up and even they overeat sometimes. So with that in mind I will not be hard on myself for this. I guess it's just a part of life sometimes right?

Right!!! And what makes you remarkable and "normal" is that you aren't letting in live and fester in your mind, driving you to eat further! Kudos, Tina!!! That is such a great step today!
