Old demons visit for a day

Ugh. I was doing so well. I was really quite excited with my progress and was so close to my April 30th goal. All I needed to do was stick with what I'd been doing for the last few weeks and it would be a piece of (non-fat, zero-calorie) cake.

But work-related stressors got the best of me yesterday. I had so much work to do that I spent most of Sunday at my computer instead of being more active and enjoying the beautiful weather. The more work I got done, the more I realized I had to do. I was getting more stressed as the day wore on. I ended up eating far more than I wanted to and working out much less than I'd wanted to. Not exactly a stellar day. This morning wasn't that great either. The only thing that saved me was that I was at the office. There's only so much I can eat around here. Luckily things didn't get as bad as indulging in the junk food in our vending machine - this morning's victims were 2 small tuna sandwiches on whole wheat and an apple. A strange breakfast, but what can you do?

These things will happen; stress is a part of everyday life. I just need to find other ways to relieve it than by (over)eating.

I seem to be over my mini-binge. It wasn't that bad really, I just ate too many portions of bean burritos yesterday and a larger breakfast than I'd anticipated. This was hardly inhaling an entire Pizza Hut stuffed crust Venetian pizza with a chaser of boneless chicken wings (am I making it sound like this has happened in the past? ) . I am proud that these things don't happen very often at all. It's not that I don't want that junk food, but strangely, I seem to have acquired some self-control. Said self-control must have checked out for a day trip yesterday because it was nowhere to be found when I couldn't stop reaching for my burritos.

Anyway, I am thankful that there are a few more days in which to reach my goal. I'm not that far away. I don't need to do anything extreme to reach it. Just keep myself focussed and mind what I eat in the same way that I have for the last few weeks. I'm almost there. Why should I sabotage myself when I can actually achieve this goal and celebrate?!

Okay, I'm fine. I can do this. I will do it. I'm back on track.
