So, I had a rough day. I'm a training coordinator (think I shared that before) and we've been training about 200 people for almost two weeks. It's a tough gig (but I must say a little off topic that I'm enjoying my job so much more since I've lost weight. I have more energy, I feel more comfortable in front of people and I'm just happier overall, I think.)...but it is tough, emotionally and physically. The days are longer, require a lot of running around, lifting, I have to interact with dozens of people and address their needs/concerns, act as counselor, negotiator, mediator and a bunch of other ...ors! It gets tiring. And, today on top of having to deal with a lot of people who are as trained out as I am, I had an encounter that wasn't very positive for me with someone who I consider to be more than a coworker and it threw me way off.
I had to stay even longer at the training site to kind of process the encounter and by the time I got home I was really wiped out. All I could do was get a huge hug from my son (he instantly made me feel better) and from my man (he made me cry a little. Well, he didn't. He just held me and let me relax into my frustration and hurt. The tears were release. Two weeks of having to be Ms. High Positive Energy stripped down.)
I went through the rest of my night until a few minutes ago when I realized that through all of it, not once did I think about food! I had to deal with an emotional issue, in a tired state and I did it without feeling like I needed to get my comfort from food. In fact, I got my comfort from my son and his father. I'm calling this My Little Thing but really it's pretty big!
