The funk has lifted. I felt so depressed and down today and can't put my finger on why, exactly. I try very hard to be positive and look at things in a clear and present light. But when my mood sinks, I get really hard on myself. Thank you all for the great comments and support. I thank you from my heart for helping me to dry my tears and straighten myself up!
And you want to know the best part? I didn't binge! I left work at lunch fully intending to get something to pig out on. I went to Randall's (like Safeway) and cruised the aisles looking for that just right food item that would take away my blues. But the more I walked around the more I realized that nothing was "calling out" to me. I picked up a bag of pita chips and thought "yeah, these will be great to nash my teeth into." I put them back. I even thought a loaf of bread would be perfect. I went to the bakery section and felt sick to my stomach. I'll be damned if I didn't just get a turkey wrap made on flatout bread and some soy crisps and a diet lemonade!
I came home and rode my bike. The weather was perfect for a ride - not too windy and nice and cool. I felt the blues leaving me as I rode around my neighborhood. It was like therapy, only cheaper!
Thank you again, you bloggers, you friends! I am thankful that today I was able to pull it together and not have to pick up the pieces.
