Confessions of a stress eater
Saturday, February 15, 2020
Day 3 of our glamping vacation thwarted all my resolve to maintain my current weight on vacation. It was the third day of plumbing issues in the kitchen. The faucet wasn't working despit, multiple attempts to repair by DH.
We ultimately had to call a mobile service man to replace the faucet, who then discovered that the water lines were clogged with calcium deposits. He "blew out " the water lines into an old towel, and it looked like an old dry river bed in the towel! Yuck!
Three days of this meant that my tiny kitchen was in complete disarray. All of the contents of the cabinet were on the counter, taking up precious counter space. I could still use the sink, but I had to haul water from the bathroom.
After the sink was fixed, we ran some errands and were gone about 3 hours. And came home to a disaster. The pups decided the camper was tasty!
Needless to say, it put me in a real funk! Our dream was to retire and go glamping across the US. I resorted to old habits... binging on chips, cookies, and ice cream.
Not all was lost tho. I was well aware of what I was doing, and why. And I allowed myself to munch through 3000 calories in one day, with only 2000 steps for the day! A real pity party! But I held myself accountable and tracked every single morsel that I shoved in my face. That, my friends, is the difference I've made in my journey. I held myself accountable.
Yesterday, I resolved to have a better day. And it was! We took the pups shopping at Petmart and they picked out a new crate, bedding, and Kongs. After lunch, we crated them with stuffed Kongs, and hit the tourist sector. I logged 8k steps, and only 1500 calories for the day. Further, we came home to content, and crated (!) pups. A much better day!
By the way, I highly recommend touring The Fountain of Youth in St Augustine!
