Score!

This has not been a fabulous week. Disastrous traffic jams eating into my flex time, husband away on business for 2 days, annoying crap to take care of at The Middle Child's school, medical tests taking up more of my precious time, The Abdominal Pain That Would Not Quit, a broken wedding photo frame, house issues still not resolved, and a sleep-deprived and stressed husband. There was more, but I think it's so traumatic, my brain has blocked it out.....

BUT - in spite of all the dramas, annoyances and stress, I did not miss one training session, and I stuck to my good nutrition. I didn't even feel like eating chocolate.

There was one particular moment of triumph on Tuesday during the Great Traffic Drama, when the kids and I couldn't escape from housing estate hell. We were trapped with gridlocked streets at either end. So I took a deep breath, got out of the car and took the boys into a cafe. They got cookies and hot chocolate. I looked longingly at the bottles of wine lined up behind the bar, the chocolate macadamia cookies in the jar on the counter ....and ordered a long black.

Emotional eating? Pah! Take that!!
