It has been a TOUGH week. If you look up the term "stress eater" in the dictionary, you will see my picture with a blue ribbon because I was the champ this week! Here's a sample of some of the things that were eating me, causing me to eat everything in sight.
1. My house (and everyone in it) had to be treated for head lice.
2. My microwave has been out of commission for 11 days now and looks to be down for at least another 7 days thanks to the perpetually crappy service that Best Buy provides. Have I mentioned recently just how much I despise Best Buy? And just how much I use my microwave on a daily basis?
3. My youngest child was diagnosed with her 2nd UTI this month and is now awaiting further tests to determine if she'll need surgery to fix a potential kidney valve issue. She's been vomiting up her antibiotics and running a fever that is worrying to me.
4. Thanks to a lot of unexpected expenses (and lack of work hours available), I'm afraid we're not going to be able to pay for our big Disney vacation payment that's due next month. (And yes, I realize that this is a "first world problem". It still sucks.)
5. Aunt Flo decided to visit early this month. That bitch.
I wish that was everything going on, but sadly, it's not.
This week just has to be a better week and I have to figure out a way to manage my stress that doesn't involve my eating habits. So, let's try this again. My goals for this week are:
1. No more than 3 carbonated drinks this week.
2. Exercise at least 3 mornings this week.
3. Try to eat at least 1 serving of fruit every day this week.
I'm hoping for a much more upbeat and positive report next Sunday!
