Day 17

Aaaahhhh, what a day...

Without going in to too much detail, I had a really bad day at work today. 

I was presented with a very difficult situation which left me terribly upset, to the point where I had to go home within a few hours after I had arrived at work.  I was (and am still) very shaken up, in tears and have a terrible migraine (so I shall make this short and sweet).

The good thing about today is that I stuck to my shakes and salad.  When I got home from work, I honestly could have gone down to KFC and eaten a whole bucket of chicken!  instead, I mixed up a shake and put it in the freezer for half an hour and enjoyed a semi thick shake.

Today has taught me a few things - I still believe that everything happens for a reason.  Things are thrown at us from all different angles and it's up to us how we deal with them.

It's like my Journey - things keep being put in the way - obstacles, tests.  Things that test my strength.  My commitment to myself.  My goal.  My mission.  And I'm not going to let these things stop me.  Things can be thrown in my way but I'm determined not to let them distract me from where I'm heading.

Temptations resisted today - I resisted the temptation to give in to emotional eating again.  It may not sound a lot but, that is bigger than anything that I've had to do in the past 2 and a half weeks.

  1. Well done Steph! Not only did you stop yourself from eating emotionally, but you identified and accepted that that's what you would have been doing. Good luck for day 18, hope it's a bit easier than this one. Love Jacqui
