My Life

Out of Control

Just one thing to get off of my chest….

Sunday morning, I woke up to this.

out of control

And promptly went into the freezer and had a pint of Salted Caramel Gelato for breakfast.

My diet/eating habits/cravings/fat thighs have gotten out of control.
I have lost the fight ya’ll.
Logically, intellectually, I know why. I know that I am stress eating. I know that I tend to overeat and let cravings for sweets and salty’s take over my life when I feel out of control in other areas of my life.
I could say I’m stressed about my Daddy and the fact that I don’t feel like my mother is equipped to handle taking care of him. And there is not one damn thing I can afford to do about it.
That’s true, but I’m also stressed about life in general right now:

  • will or won’t the job let me work from home,
  • will Pookah ever stop this annoying throat clearing he’s had for months,
  • will his eyes ever be white again,
  • will I ever REALLY  have the energy for spontaneous sex again?
  • WHY am I not pregnant?( well, see the above)

 

Yes, I could and should exercise( it would probably help the stress).
Yes, I could and should put down the warm honey bun and the bag of salt and vinegar potato chips.( it would defiantly help the thighs…)
I am out of control.

That’s all…….

    It’s a lot. This whole life thing we all seem to be trying to juggle. Not one of us has perfected it. Not one.

    The struggle is real. Pass me some gelato. 🙂

    we are all there with you. I’m in the same boat with my eating lately–I’m looking at myself like wtfff are you EATING?! Sometimes the little and the big things gang up on us to overwhelm us, but the good thing is that this too shall pass.

    I am a stress eater, too! I think it helps to remember to be kind to yourself through it all. Sleep well. Drink water. And do what you can. And things will get back to normal. It takes time.

    Life throws so much at us to juggle! Eating right is truly a daily struggle for me. I have to make a very conscious effort. My plan is to do well during the work week and treat myself on the weekend. Not both days, I have to pick one. I only have coffee and a coke one day a week. And I have been consistently exercising 3 days a week since February. I feel so much better.

    Just come up with a plan and go from there. Take it one day at a time. Everyday is a new day! You can do it!
