What to do ??????

I am sitting here at work just dying to go out and feed my face. While I realise that this will not accomplish anything more than making me feel guilty and adding to the kilos that I already want to lose – I want to do it anyway ! I have had a few situations at work (yesterday and today) which are pushing my stress levels to the absolute limit and I want to deal with that by eating. Unfortunately the voices in my head are telling me that that isn’t the way to deal with the stress. I also have a T-shirt (which I love) which says “You’re just jealous because the voices only talk to me” which proves that there really are voices out there that talk to us – especially when I am shopping !!!!! (You girls know who you are and I want to say a big thank you for coming out with me !!!)

But, back to my problem. I can either sit here and stew or get out there and hopefully avoid the food which is sure to be screaming my name from every food shop in Australia Fair. Maybe I can go and do some clothes shopping instead.

I went to pilates last night – I can definitely feel the difference between the two classes – I am glad that I decided to work around the inconvenient time and change to the advanced class – it is much more beneficial for me.

Well – ONLY 1 SLEEP TO GO – I am not sure who is more excited – Al or myself. I did mention that if he missed the plane not to bother getting the next one he could just stay there and work and I would stay here and collect his pay but he assured me that he won’t miss the flight. I have a feeling he will be at the airport well before he is meant to be ‘just to make sure”.

I am off to see if I can find any clothes to buy – but promise to stay away from the food while I am out.

Take care everyone and have a great Wednesday.

TFTD : Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.

TIAGF : The voices in my head

Update : I went out at lunch time and managed to stay away from food of any description but I did buy myself a beautiful long sleeve top. It is another item which is way out of my comfort zone in terms of colour and pattern (normally plain solid colours and occasionally stripes with one floral sleeveless top which I wore to the Sydney lunch) - so it is all still good. Thank you all for your support - it is much needed right now.

Much better to buy a nice top than give in to temptations of eating when stressed. Well done! Hope the stressful situations calm down.
So glad Al is nearly home to you.
Have fun!

Take care.

Sounds like we have all been shopping (as I put my hand up), its those little endulgences that really make the difference and just doing something special for ourselves can really help turn your outlook. You have always been such a wonderful support to me and my journey, thankyou.

Good morning Linda. Well done for shopping and finding some nice clothes. We must have been shopping around the same time I think LOL.

It's good in a way that the issue at work is now in the open because at least the fear of being caught out is now gone. And well done to you for avoiding the chocolate and the munchies.

Have a fabulous day today. We'll understand if we don't hear from you for a while - but know we are thinking of you.

Talk soon xx

I like your style... instead of buying food you went for the clothes option.... much safer!! enjoy your time with Al while he's home:)

Well done on resisting the food temptations. As for dealing with work stress - my preferred method is to roll up a newspaper and slap someone round the ears with it. If you can't do this - picture it in your head. The voices will enjoy it.

Welcome home Al, and well done you for avoiding temptation!!

I hope you are thinking of me whenever any urges hit, because I was sure as heck thinking of you when I was staring at the Starbursts in the vending machine this afternoon!!

Hope the work situation improves soon.

Those voices man, sometimes...LOL. Sorry to hear about work still bugging you but glad to hear you went shopping and bought clothes instead, and something out of your comfort zone! I hope you had a brilliant Thursday and have an even better weekend now that your best friend is back. Paint the town red girl!!
