I Didn't Eat My Emotions!

I did it!

Yesterday was a pretty rotten day. It started with someone trying to scam money out of me on the phone, followed by cub scouts and a very moody 9 year old, and a trip to the grocery store (in the middle of my liquid diet), making pizza's or should I say smelling pizzas made for the kids and their friends, watching the kids decorate and eat cookies (I just wanted to use up what was left of the candy!), major teenage drama from my 13 year old, and a sad sleepover buddy who needed to go home.

Typically I would have consumed MASSIVE amounts of junk food over the course of the day! And after the sleepover went awry I probably would have sat up for another hour eating, just because I could. But today I realized that I didn't.

I shopped quickly off of my list at the grocery store, I took a deep breath before dealing with emotional children, I prayed about my problems and I hid in my bedroom when I was ready to explode for no reason! I did it! I did it! I dealt with my emotions instead of eating them away! Score 1 for Grace!

Until next time....Hugs, Prayers & I Can Deal With Emotions!

  1. Great Job Grace....I need to take after you. I always eat when I'm up set and I never take the time to just step back and let things cool down before I find something...Thanks for the post
