Friday WTFs

All I have to say today my friends is TGIF & Go Vols! Well that's not really ALL I have to say...but the only nice thing really.
 
Yesterday was a very stressful day for me. My work life is very hectic and high stress right now - and yesterday I collapsed under the pressure. I ate 2 cupcakes, M&Ms, drank like 5 Diet Cokes and several snacks from my desk stash - that was in on top of regular meals. Then I got home and I ate some more, including ice cream, and cried. I should have come home and gone for a long run, but I didn't. WHYYYYYY do I stress eat? Why did yesterday just dominate my ass? Why can't I control it? I've had a really positive two weeks with eating and working out. I had lost 2 lbs, and I felt great. Yesterday just made me feel awful about myself and miserable because I caved under that stress. For the next 3-4 weeks I have projects at work that are going to be stressful and will monopolize my time, and I must learn to control these triggers. I've never struggled with these problems until after my engagement ended back in early November...which is a whole different level of frustrating to understand. Lack of control is a huge theme in my life right now....as sad as that is to admit. If you're the praying kind, then please just send a tiny one up for me.
 
Today is a new day though. I cannot will not allow the stress to get the best of me.
 
THEN, I realize that my Facebook layout has changed completely and I have to switch over to BlogLovin' because Google Reader is going away in July. I created a BlogLovin' account wwwwayyyy back when and now when I try to claim my blog it shows my recent posts as ones from Feb 2012. I can't even begin to deal with that today....so I'm not going to. If anyone has easy tips on how to make the BlogLovin' switch, please let me know and I will try to work on that this weekend. UGH!
 
My Vols are playing Game 2 today in the SEC Tourney. This makes me feel a little happiness! And I see a glass of wine in my future this evening so there's that glimmer of hope too...
 
Here's to a HAPPY WEEKEND!

I hate that you had a bad day yesterday! I wish I could have been there to help last night! But you are right, today is a new day! You can do this, we all have set backs- I had one yesterday too! Things will get better! And we'll get through this together!

Rachel Silski said...

I am not even stressing over this blog lovin stuff...also...I hope your weekend rocks and you de-stress!

Love you my little TN Love Muffin!!

XOXO

Girlfrand, stop being so hard on yourself. You had a bad day...today is a NEW day and it will be GOOD!! You are so stinkin' pretty...two cupcakes, m&m's, and ice cream isn't going to change that. Just watch your calories today and you'll be just fine!

Now I want a damn cupcake. Happy Friday, beautiful friendddd! xo

Forget about yesterday! One day isn't going to make or break you! You got this girlie. Just get back on the wagon this weekend!!

First of all, we all cave every now and then. I gave up sweets for Lent and ate some chocolate chip cookies this week. It always seems like a great idea at the time but then after I was saying, "Why?!" As far as the whole blog thing, I'm super annoyed. So you are saying that when you pull up your blog in BL it isn't showing recent posts? I don't know what that's about. Email them. They can help you. And you can easily export the blogs you follow via Google into Bloglovin. Hopefully everyone will do that!

i am so sorry you had a bad day yesterday, but we all do sometimes! don't be so hard on yourself, love.

and this bloglovin stuff has me stressed out, too. im going to try to figure it all out this weekend, but i have pinned a couple of posts that i think sound helpful!

Audra said...

Don't beat yourself up!!! You are awesome and beautiful, and seriously.... those diet cokes are NOT going to kill you. I promise. If so, my co-worker would be deader than a doornail. You've been through enough, why focus on those little M&Ms that don't really count anyway? I hope this weekend is rejuvenating for you!

Cassie said...

whew - deep breaths.

drive home with the windows down lady. go for a run. and then enjoy that game and some MUCH deserved wine.

Whitney Leigh said...

sounds like it was just one of those days. I'm so sorry. Just remember, we are allowed to have bad days. we just are. :)

and bloglovin' is going to break me. I had a fight with my computer last night just trying to sign up for it. grr.

Tracy said...

OMG girl, we ALL have those days!! Just don't let your mind go to "well I've already screwed myself for today, so let's just keep on going!!" I have done that TOO MUCH and that's the "fat girl" inside us all, lol.

I know I don't "know" you, and I don't want to offend by ANY means but...I do want to say that I went to a counselor my church recommended only 3 times after my VERY emotional break-up and it help SO incredibly much!! Some people are really against therapy, and that was the only time I went, but I would definitely go again. It was just talking about what you stress about like on here, but to someone that actually has steps to get you to where you want to be, answers to your questions, and they are unbiased! It helped me to be able to not measure my self-worth by the flipping number on the scale and/or by the age I'll be when I get married and start a family...but also to know that these are GOALS and to get a plan in place for my weight loss (for me and my health) as well as what to look for in a partner that I want and to compliment my needs. Anyways, I would say just think about it. :)

We all love ya and can only imagine all what you are going through!

I know exactly how you feel about the eating! This whole week has been a "bad" week! I will be glad when Shamrock shakes aren't at McDonalds tempting me with all their minty shake goodness! Even though I beat myself up after eating/drinking something like that I always know tomorrow is a new day! Plus the weather this weekend in TN is looking pretty Springy so I'm sure you'll make up for not running! Happy Friday!!

Jordan said...

Dude we all have those days where sometimes we just need a fucking cupcake. Don't beat yourself up! You've been doing amazing and one little slip-up is nothing to worry too much about. Hopefully you get a chance to just relax and wind down this weekend in order to prepare for these projects. Enjoy your wine and spend too much time in sweatpants. And go for a run if you're feeling up for it :)

Jessica Manning-Garner said...

Go Vols!

I hear you about stress eating. I'm like that, too. Try to remember that one bad day doesn't cancel out 2 weeks of good days.

Happy weekend!

Stephanie said...

I'm sorry love, days like that suck. You have to give in to them once in awhile though, so just consider that your one time and now you can move on! Don't beat yourself up.
And bloglovin is way difficult, sorry I can't help.

Erin Rethemeyer said...

I am sorry you had a bad day yesterday! I understand how those days can happen. Remember you are strong and you can conquer anything!!! Keep plugging away at your goals - stress eating happens to everyone.

Hope your evening gets better and you can enjoy your weekend. A glass of wine is needed ASAP!
Once I go off the deep end of eating bad, I can't stop. I've already busted it, so I might as well have another brownie, cookie, cupcake, etc. But today is a new day and you can start over.

"Friday WTFs" is a link up I could so get on board with ... I'm so over google's stupid ass shit. They KNOW that people have spent their forevers being OBSESSED with how many followers they have, and now they are taking it away. I just deleted my follower thing altogether. If people care what I write, I guess they will have to follow via dang email. So stupid.

Have a magical weekend!

Erin Keene said...

Aww ): If it makes you any better I ate so much raw cake batter on an empty stomach while cooking for a bridal shower earlier that i puked...gross! But we all have those days where food makes us feel like shit, don;t beat yourself up about it! Have some wine (or a lot) tonight and have a good weekend!

Janna Renee said...

Look up "Binge Eating Disorder" or BED. I know it sounds daunting and not fun, but understanding it is really helpful. (Obviously I have struggled with this at times)

I also HIGHLY recommend a book called "The End Of Overeating", and journaling when you overeat or want to overeat. It's the best way to "pep talk yourself" and to learn to keep yourself accountable. {{Hugs}}

It will get better! 1 bad day can't undo all the good days you've had. Change your WTFs to Wow, That's Fantastics! xoxo

You can go to http://www.bloglovin.com/import and it will import all your google reader blogs into your blog lovin account. . Just like one good meal doesn't make you skinny one bad meal won't make you fat. Keep your chip up tomorrow is another day

Don't feel bad my friend I do great all week and for some reason on Sundays I eat all day. I have to figure out a better way. Just say I will not do this! But in the meantime I love you! Stay tough!
