Even though today was my first day back from vacation, it was a stressful day for me. The news that was stressing me out was delivered early in the day. And with my “just back from vacation” swagger I took the news well. But as the day went on and I began to absorb the ramifications of the change that I would have to endure, I began to feel the stress roll in. I also began to recount the news to my husband and other co-workers, this manifested the level of stress. By mid afternoon the news was completely stressing me out.
I am a stress eater and I comfort myself with food. I also reward myself with food. Today I did not choose to sooth myself with food. Wow! Well I’m not completely through the day, but I’ve made it through dinner and I am in control. I feel funny writing this but I am being completely honest. I am mindfully choosing not to sooth myself with food. I’ve convinced myself that the food will in fact not make me feel better and if it does it will be for a short period of time, so why do it.
Wow, I make sense. Is that voice in my head changing it’s ways?
