Day 2: Ouch

My left knee is rather sore this morning. I don't know why, but I'll try to be nice to it...I suppose it has been a few weeks off.

I got up and did my Ball DVD this morning. And no, no juice or food before hand and it all went fine :). Despite my knee being a bit sore I did it all and had a good breakfast-oatmeal and blueberries. My fave.

I've got a new challenge for the next while - I know I'm an emotional eater. Food comforts me.
And I now refuse to lose myself in foody comfort as I deal with everything. Last night was a tough evening for some reason, but my amazing husband is here for me. I am going to do my best to eat well and keep the crazy emotional eating to a minimum. I may be drinking a lot of tea over the next while, but I am determined. I know it won't comfort me for more than 5 minutes and I'll be miserable after that. It helps that the amazing people I work with sent us a fruit basket instead of flowers, so there is a lot of healthy munchables if I get weak-willed.

Hugs are better than food.
Definitely.

Hey . . .

Oh, hell. You get the idea. ;)

One of the things I've been thinking about a lot lately is that FOOD is not the problem. *I* am the problem. So maybe I should focus less on "fixing" my FOOD, and more on fixing ME. Gah.

Well, it's totally understandable that things would be tough right now and that you'd be tempted to do a lot of emotional eating. Glad your husband is such a comfort. Hang in there; thinking about you during this tough time.
