Dreary Day

Last night was Pizza Night for the family and even though I was "good" and planned and ate my own WW Smart Ones pizza, I still found myself grabbing a big gooey slice of their cheese pizza and devouring it right before bedtime. What the hell? I wasn't hungry, I didn't need it and it wasn't even worth the calories so what happened?

Emotional Eating. Plain & Simple. We've all been there, right? It's rainy & dreary outside, my house is a mess, work is stressful and unfulfulling and to top it all off, tomorrow is the first anniversary of my mom's death and I'm feeling very weepy and melancholy, missing her terribly. It's not an excuse to binge, I know that, I'm just being honest with myself and acknowledging what drove me into the pizza box.

Anyway, it's a new day and I'm going to get through it the best I can. Since watching Julie & Julia last night, I have an intense urge to cook something but it's surely not going to be duck! *shudder* Instead I am going to spend some therapeutic time cutting up veggies and tofu.

Have a Beauty-Full Day,


  1. Sometimes we can't help but devour a big gooey slice pizza but it's the decisions you make after that slice that matter.

    You should honor your Mom by living the best life you know she would want for you. I don't think it ever gets easier but we learn how to cope with the loss a little better over the years.

    I loved Julie & Julia (the book - I haven't seen the movie yet) but I don't think anything would give me the urge to cook. Have fun slicking and dicing.

  2. Ah yes. Emotional Eating - false friendship
    Love the Julie - Julia story!!!! Hugs to you

  3. So sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. I hope that you can continue to get healthy and consider that an honor to her memory.

    Speaking of pizza, I will soon be blogging a recipe for an easy pizza crust. Sometimes making your own healthy pizza makes it much easier to resist that goopy, gooey Pizza Hut/Dominos monstrosity!

  4. MB, you are so right! Thank you. :)

  5. Thank you, Fallon. The last argument my mother and I had was related to my weight, will have to blog about that someday. :-(
