One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident

JOURNAL

Crash.

5 Comments 2153 views

The past few days I felt like I could take on the world! I was juggling everything LIKE A BOSS. managing the inbox, juggling the conference logistics, spending time with the family, even keeping my food journals and posting here on the blog (the other two blogs not so much but hey, something’s got to give).

Today, however, I fell apart. I was crippled with stress while waiting on emails. I got some bad news about the conference and my contractual obligations. I had to send out more reminders to the same folks I’ve been waiting on for weeks.

All of a sudden everything I was juggling seem to crash to the ground. I just stared at my computer screen paralyzed.

I mushed through as I always do — as we all aways do — but I found myself turning to food, moping around and just, well, not managing it all too well.

So I called a few friends, got some stuff off my chest, took the kids to the gym, enjoyed some ice cream and took a deep breath.

Now that I think of it, I guess that was my way of  dealing — #wycwyc style. :)

No journals tonight. I just didn’t keep it all day and I don’t feeling like posting from memory. I will, however, leave you with this.

The OT (Original Toddler) has finished 4th grade! This was our He-Got-All-A’s celebratory photo.

Love him.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Your ability to juggle and persevere is unmatched! You are a rock star despite any crashes that may be taking place.

    It sounds like you had a rough day! I appreciate when bloggers share that though– it’s sometimes seems people only share the perfect. It’s encouraging to see others tough it out through hard things.
