Old habits die hard

It just goes to show you how easy it is to fall back into old habits and coping mechanisms. Today, we got some not-so-good news about my mom. ((And F-you, cancer. I hate you.))

And what did I do?

I proceeded to eat a bunch of crap in an attempt to self-soothe.

Lindt truffle balls? Yes please!

Sushi with rice and tempura shrimp and edamame? Sounds great!

Salted caramel mocha from Starbucks? With whip? And caramel drizzle? Sign me up!

Chocolate chip cookie leftover from the weekend? Why not!

The end result being that my mom’s cancer didn’t magically disappear and I am not any calmer or more capable of dealing with the whole situation. I do, however, have a pretty wicked stomach ache.

Sigh. Back on the Paleo wagon tomorrow and back to working on healthy coping mechanisms.

  1. You were eating the chocolate for its many health benefits, the shrimp for its antioxidants and mineral content, and the edamame requires no explanation. The mocha was the necessary boost you needed to get through the rest of the day and the chocolate chip cookie would have gone bad soon. šŸ™‚

    Huge hugs. Don’t be too hard on yourself.

    • That is hilarious! (And diabolically clever.) Now if only I had had some red wine or beer for the heart-health benefits, I would have been set!
