I'm Back...

I apologize for not posting much lately...I think I was just mentally worn out. But things are better - the sun is shining, the sky is blue (although it's rather cold), my kids are doing ok and we are moving ahead.

Interestingly, with all of last week's stress, I didn't find myself overeating. Now that's not to say that I didn't think about food - brownies, especially - but I guess I realized that overeating wouldn't make it better. And I probably would have felt worse, physically. So there's that. I also kept up with my workouts. Again, not going wouldn't have helped anything. Old me would NOT have behaved this way, I assure you! I guess healthy eating and exercise really are becoming more and more like *gulp* habits for me. Who would've guessed it?

I'll post more this week. I have a new jeans story that I know y'all just can't wait to hear about! (Yes, I must be feeling good as my sarcasm is coming back!)


  1. I do want to hear your jeans story!

    And I am extremely impressed with your ability to get through this difficult time without overeating. HUGE BRAVO to you!!!!

  2. never apologize (though you do have me wondering about the jeans now :))

    hang in there---GREAT JOB on the not turning to food during all your stress.


  3. I think someone said it at WW recently:

    If food isn't the problem; food isn't the answer.

    I keep running that thru my head.

    Sounds like you have a similar sound track!

    Good job fighting stress eating.

  4. You are a rock star getting through that all without over eating! Glad you're back. I was missing the sarcasm:)

  5. Glad things are better. I'm really impressed that you were able to stay on track with your eating and exercising with all the stress you were going through. You're my hero!!

    Can't wait for the jean's story :o)

  6. So glad to hear another person express what I'm feeling.

    Glad you're back!! Vee at

  7. Glad you're back. Looking forward to more posts.

  8. Glad to see you back. Good job not numbing out with food! Learning to cope with stress in healthy ways is a big step.

  9. Congratulations for not falling into the food = comfort trap, especially when dealing with so much trauma and heartache.

  10. Glad your back and things are getting back to normal - that was a stressful week last week and kudos for not reaching for the brownies!

  11. glad you are doing so well!! Looking forward to hearing about those jeans ;)
