Today, we are dealing with quite a LOT of Nasty weather across the Southern United States. Wind gusts of over 75 mph and tornados galore. At 3 AM, this fine morning, my parents lost their home to the storm. The same storm that roared through my town and caused power failure here and downed trees was more fearce where they lived; it ripped through their town in Mississippi and brought a massive tree crashing down upon their home. They are well in body but slightly broken in spirit. I am frustrated because I cannot get to them to be with them as they struggle through this.
I tried a Very short jaunt across town to give my daughter something before we knew the extent of damages in the surrounding area. I was stuck in traffic for over TWO and a HALF HOURS! Never made it to where I was going. Completely stinks! Our internet is down and Mike’s “HOT SPOT” phone is barely limping along enough for me to post this with NO pics or anything else.
I suppose you can discern the agitation in my writing … forgive me please … I will return to my normal happier self. I am normally only angry about fat, but I don’t do fake emotions. When I am happy it shows. When I am not it shows. When I am Angry … Get out of the way. I am only agitated right now. Why? Because I can do nothing to help my family. I know they are going to be fine. They will move on and get going as they should.
Why do I mention any of this? Do I think you all can cyber-space me help? No, I am just frustrated, and this is my blog, and I just figured I could write about what is buggin’ me. It does affect how you view eating.
I am also concerned because I can’t exercise today, and I am dealing with Massive hunger issues. It is probably left over from working out, but emotion is not helping. I am not an emotional eater per se, but today I think I am battling wanting to eat things that make me feel emotionally satisfied. I have substituted my cravings for comfort food with real food that is good for you, and is according to my eating plan. However, I am using more real food than my OptiFast products, which IS a HUGE break from the norm and cause for concern. I believe I am making wise choices, but it makes me nervous even so.
I know I will be fine and all will return to normal in a day or so. Life happens somedays, and we just have to roll with it. I am not gonna beat myself up because I am hungry for real food, or that I am eating more of it than usual. I am just going to make wise choices and move on.
Y’all be safe where ever you are …S
