I just need to post SOMEWHERE so I can tell someone...
Yesterday we got back news about a family member that has been sick and is now dieing. (On hospice)
It was an out of the blue call, and we changed our plans and went to go see him.
After a few hours and other family stress we decided to just go out to grab dinner since it was super late, we were all hungry and I didn't feel like cooking.
I almost ordered what ever I wanted, including ice cream, thinking I'm stressed and this is unusual circumctances.
But I told myself that stress is not an excuse to start eating poorly. I craved a ciggarette too, but I knew I wouldnt give in to that ,so why would I give into eating poorly.
It was a new feeling to deal with unexpected stress and not use it as a reason to eat crap.
Makes it a little harder to deal with the issue at hand though.
