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?
