Emotional Eating

I don't know why but I was feeling crazy low yesterday.  It was brought on by a series of small yet irritating things that I just couldn't seem to let go of.  Things like arguing with the School District's Transportation Department regarding the location of the girls' bus stop, dealing with a ridiculously condescending attorney at work, forgetting to email my insurance renewal to the mortgage company (did that again today), fretting over the state of the house (it's a mess!) and then eating my feelings.

I grazed more yesterday than I have since before the preop diet.  I had my coffee in the a.m. but had an early lunch of my glazed pork chop and rice (correct portion).  I don't know if it's because I ate early but then I had an early afternoon snack of cheese and crackers, THEN stopped at Starbucks and got a Tall Caramel Light Frappuccino and chocolate chip cookie!  And THEN I still ate dinner.  Dinner was healthy...steak kabob and mashed sweet potatoes.  I tracked all that on MFP and came up with 1160 calories for the day with WAY too much sugar.  Is this a better fuck up day than before?  Absolutely.  Is this why I got cut open again?  Absolutely NOT.  I've got to find a better way to deal with my emotions.

That being said, today is a new day and my meals are planned.  I'm going to power through any hormonal urges to drown sorrow in food.

Hi! I found your blog today through Mary Fran's blog. I tend to stress-eat a lot too, and that is something I am fighting to get under control too.

Me and you both, sister. I do appreciate the Garfield cartoon. My plates are totally bad!
