I wish I could tell you...

...that I had a perfect weekend of eating and non binging. I cannot.

Saturday we had a very fun day at the Wisconsin Renaissance Faire. The girls had a blast. Of course the food choices weren't very good, so I just ate my girls leftovers and had an ice cream cone. We walked a lot, so I wasn't too disappointed with this.

Saturday night, my cat got out (she is an indoor cat)and she has not come back yet. We live with a lot of woods around our house with a lot of foxes, coyotes, deer, etc. I can't say I'm terribly optimistic for her return. This made me so sad.

Sunday. I ate probably 6 Hostess Cupcakes and maybe 10 graham crackers. I did however, forgo the Chinese food and didn't eat dinner.

This really is the most traumatic thing that has happened to me since March. We've had this cat for 7 years. It's just so sad. I am not proud of how I dealt with my emotions, however I am proud that even though it was my suggestion to get Chinese, I didn't eat any. I am proud that I got up this morning and walked 4 miles, then went and did Body Flow. I am proud that I have maintained eating healthy all day today.

I'm still sad, but these little victories make me realize how far I've come!!

  1. Oh, girl. I am so sorry about your cat! I will pray she is safe & sound after all!?! I know how pets are like family. {HUGS!}

    No worries - back to healthiness tomorrow! :)

  2. I'll light a candle and pray that your cat returns. We've got two indoor cats, and I'd be devastated if one of them got lost... they're way too stupid to survive on their own.

  3. I'm so sorry about your cat, lets hope she is somewhere safe. I can't imagine how upsetting it is. You did respond emotionally to a very emotional situation but have learned - and exercised restraint all of which are positives to move forward. I too respond to difficult emotions by reaching for comfort foods...how to learn not to? I haevn't worked that out yet.
    Hoping for positive news on your cat
