This over stressed single Dad almost gave in tonight 

I know that this won’t register with everyone as being a truly positive thing because in the grand scheme of things, especially in my life, there are much bigger fish to fry.  

That being said, for me personally, this is something that I’m really proud of.  

I have been struggling with stress eating, especially on nights I can’t fall asleep.  I find comfort in it and I always think that I’ll feel better enough to finally be able to fall asleep.  Of course, that never ends up being the case and if anything, I feel worse because I didn’t have the self control I needed to make a better choice.  

Tonight was heading in the same direction once again.  

It was a rough day and I’m feeling a great deal of stress and pressure. All I wanted to do was slap together a couple of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (my guilty pleasure of late) and try and eat my stress away.  

Having said that, for some reason tonight, I was able to find the strength to resist and I didn’t give into temptation.  I’m feeling really good about this right and I’m hoping to continue this trend moving forward.
