Facing the Music...
So, why do I feel so bad?
I guess it's because of WHY I ate the pizza. I've been fighting this cold for over a week now. It has wiped out all my energy. Nothing is getting done. And I've been getting depressed about it all.
Tonight I gave into that depression and ate pizza. Too much pizza! I ate out of emotion, not any other reason! And, while the pizza tasted good, it wasn't worth it.
The only thing to do at this point is to acknowlege what I did and move on. Make a mental note: eating did not help me feel any better. I still have a cold. I still have no energy. I'm still not getting anything done. I am still depressed.
But I refused to be depressed about eating. This is a learning opportunity. A little reminder of what doesn't work. Probably a bit of a setback in my next weigh-in. I can begin again. Now. This moment. Every moment is a chance to start fresh. I forgive myself. I have weekly points. This, too, shall pass.
His mercies. New. Each morning.
