Snack Girl Challenges Emotional Eating and Loses
May 28, 2010 9 Comments
This photo is of a hospital. No, they don't serve yummy snacks here. I was just at a hospital for most of a week visiting my aunt.
I sit now in a Motel 6 in Buffalo, NY. (Only the best for Snack Girl!) I drove to Chicago because of a crisis and now I am driving home to Massachusetts.
I have no desire to go into the details of the trip. Let's just say that I love my aunt more than I could ever express with the keys on this key board.
How did I do on my challenge? Not so great. I didn't write my food journal (or my blog either - maybe you noticed?) and I ate comfort foods instead of healthy foods.
Yes, my week was pizza, beer, ice cream, muffins, cookies, and bacon. I was stressed and I couldn't resist my favorites. But, you know something? The stress was real.
It wasn't the crappy finale of Lost or the wrong winner of American Idol that put me over the edge. So, I will forgive myself and move on.
The good news is that I kept exercising. I have caught an exercise bug and (even in my incredibly sad state) I kept working out.
I packed my Jillian DVD and my weights in my suitcase and I did my workouts. I feel GREAT because I never would have done that without our challenge.
And, this trip has reminded me of my own mortality. Do you want to reduce the chance that you will get diabetes, heart disease or cancer? Eat healthy food and exercise - any doctor will inform you of the power of these two actions.
So, I'm going to eat healthy food and exercise and I will LIVE to see my grandchildren. Got it?
No stats for this week - no scale or measuring tape here in Motel 6.
Tell me about your week! How did you guys do? Cheer me up with some happy stories of conquered goals.
