Fighting the Urge

Today has been a rough day.  We are dealing with some things emotionally and somewhat financially that we weren't prepared for.  I know everything will work out and will be fine.  There is a much greater power watching over us and I know we will be able to work everything out with His guidance.  

However, as an emotional eater, today has been a struggle.  I am constantly thinking about things and trying to make a plan for my family.  I am worrying about everything and everyone.  So, of course, it is no surprise that I found myself sitting in my recliner while the boys were asleep day dreaming about twinkies, doritos, Cupcake Charlie's, and so on!  

I fought through it all though and managed to do a workout dvd.  It was hilarious!  Cardio Dance Blast  This dvd is from 2005.  No matter though because I still got a workout!  I was soaked by the time I was done and had ended up having a lot of fun.

I also kept myself busy by playing with the boys, starting dinner (recipe to follow), completing my vision board (more on that to come too), eating popcorn, and talking to my mom.  

I feel good that I did not give in to temptation and eat away like I normally would have done.  I know it wouldn't have fixed a thing.  Goodness, I always know that, but usually after I get my little binge in.  Amazingly enough though, I realized it BEFORE I did any damage to my day.  

As you can see from my list of things I did...I did eat.  I had my popcorn.  The food component was there still.  I ate because I was stressed, but I tried to make it a better decision than the aforementioned  goodies!  I didn't over do it.  I stayed clear of my normal trigger foods.  

For now, this is all I can do.
