The View From My Window

The world as seen from my window and through my eyes

Got to get back on the wagon! May 19, 2008

Last week was the week of ice cream binging. I guess every healthy eating regimen goes through a crisis now and again. Mine was last week when I hit Dairy Queen twice for a heavy dose of some massively calorie laden ice cream, hot fudge and browning concoction in a chocolate dipped waffle bowl. While comforting and enjoyable at the time, it’s definitely not a habit I can sustain for long.

This week, it’s back to bringing my lunch, chicken on the grill and salads for dinner and the gym. I think I’ve taken to falling back on old habits like “comfort foods” to help treat my anxious moments. There’s a lot of change taking place at work right now, another daughter getting married in a few weeks and the vote on a new pastor coming up at church. When stressed, I have always turned to food. Pasta, burgers, ice cream. BAD! BAD! BAD!

This week will be better. I’ll definitely get a handle on my weakness and start hitting the exercise trail again. By this time next week I hope I will have dropped a couple more pounds. On the plus side of things, at least I’ve maintained my weight despite all the binging. Now, I just need to lose some more!
