Comfort Food is Not So Comforting

I am not an emotional eater. Not at all. Sure I want to taste something comforting, but going for the whole "stuff yourself to feel better" has honestly never been my thing.

However, TODAY - I went for comfort food. I stopped by the deli at Publix and picked up the Mardi Gras (herbed flavored wings) and the two sides I picked were mac & cheese and mashed sweet potatoes. I ate quite a bit.

Then I proceeded to consume some ice cream.

I am currently sitting at my desk and wanting to keel over.

OMG. WHAT WAS I THINKING?

Let me just cram as many carbs and sugar down my throat and see how my body will respond.

NOT GOOD.

As I sit here and ponder a crazy week, I am making a promise to each of my readers now. I am cleaning up my personal mess. As soon as I can get through the weekend, I promise to go back to traditional topics on my blog. I do not want to lose any of you with all of this crazy emotional stuff. I do apologize for going down that route. But this is my journal, the one place I go to express (not repress.)

So - with that being said, my action steps are:

1. No more crap food in large quantities on an empty stomach
2. No more whining (outside maybe one post a week or so.)

Okay?

Okay.

the first step towards healing is to map out a plan for it. Sounds like you are well on your way...aside from the overload of carbs and sugar of course. OMG girl, I would be falling asleep. ~Hugs...always here for you

I am a reformed emotional eater. I've learned that eating doesn't solve the problem, so now I eat when I'm hungry.. not sad/hurt/bored/mad/etc/etc.

(But, your lunch did sound yummy!)

I am a lot less concerned with you losing followers and more concerned with you losing yourself. You are about to be facing a very challenging situation. One in which you love and the other person doesn't, but he does have goals and he needs you to facilitate them. Man, that sucks monkey balls. I am praying for you.

I missed the last two posts and just have to say I'm so sorry. Stupid boys. Thinking about you and hoping when he arrives you'll come to a resolution to move on.

One thing I have learned is Blogland friends, really are friends. We can not make decisions for you ...but we can read and let you know that warm thoughts and prayers are being sent your way.

Stay strong.. and tomorrow is another day... a new day , actually.. so you can start fresh each day!!! hugs from across BlogLand..xo HHL

excuse me, this is your journal. Why do you feel the need to apologize for what goes into it? Look at me. I rarely get comments on my blog, because I don't fill it with lame dribble, but it's CATHARTIC. Isn't that what matters?

Don't mind me. I emotionally drank. I save emotional eating for tomorrow ;)

but my opinion stands. Don't apologize for something that's yours :) I read anyway.

Never apologize for getting into the personal stuff. If you lose followers for it, then they weren't your friends, and you shouldn't want them as followers anyway.
