I Never Realized That I was an Emotional Eater Until Today

When your child is sick, it's GAME OVER.

We were awoken every hour by our son who is getting in his large molars. He had a fever and was a bit uncomfortable.

Lots of cuddles got us through the night and he eventually slept from 5am-9am after his fever broke.

But when my alarm went off at 5:30am to be at the gym for 6, I was not feeling the greatest having been up every hour prior.

I had that moment of, screw it, I could just try to fit it in later, but deep down inside I knew my day was packed and it wouldn't happen.

The old me, wouldn't have skipped a workout, but I mostly likely would have done some yoga.

The new me got my butt out of bed, got dressed, and powered through a workout at the gym.

I had back to back meetings and classes today, and by the time dinner hit, I was exhausted.

The thought that came to my mind was, " I could totally go for a glass of wine and some take out."

But suddenly it hit me. I really wasn't craving that food or needing wine.

I was tired. I was mentally done. And I would have been feeding my emotions.

Despite the craziness of the day, I stuck to my meal plan to a T.

Why blow it now?

So we decided to stay the course, and I had my chicken breast, squash, and avocado.

I chose to be proud of myself for making the best choices that will get me closer to my goal.

It's not that any choice is wrong or right, I just wanted to eat to match my goals.

My mind is really starting to change in how I view food.

It really is fuel.

I don't have any emotional attachment to it at all.

I'm proud of my hard work today!

Day 29 of 168.. DONE.

OH-- and my competition shoes came in the mail today!
