Well friends, I have to tell you that today has been a rough one for me. I have fallen prey to stress eating or emotional eating and it wasn’t pretty. First of all, breakfast was completely skipped. I got up early because I had to take our new puppy to the vet but my stomach was not feeling up to par so I didn’t eat anything. By the time we got home from the vet I was in full-on gastrointestinal distress. I will spare you the gory details, friends. So later on, I’m in freak out mode because we have some new unschooling friends coming over tomorrow and I want to make a good impression. Well, Ryan had come close to blowing up the playroom yet again, after I spent at least and hour and a half yesterday cleaning the whole thing up. I was furious and let everyone within earshot know it. For my RU friends, you know this is not what we practice but unfortunately I allowed my emotions to get the better of me. It just got uglier from there. Remember this meal on Saturday?
Well, with complete and utter disregard for the agony I was in earlier, around 2pm I added to my torture by repeating this plate of food. Boy, am I regretting it now. There really is a connection between nourishing your body and just feeding an immediate need. I’m calling it a day, my friends and will start with a clean slate and healthy plate tomorrow.
