Revisiting the Re-do

Ever notice yourself giving other people advice that you should be taking?  I just recommended the re-do to someone who had a food situation over the weekend that could be resolved with a re-do.  I need to re-do it myself.  I had some ice cream but I did give half to my Dad.  I had two burgers, but I had only 1.5 buns.  In retrospect, I should have had a couple of protein shakes and additional chicken for protein.  I could have skipped the buns entirely.  By then, I was so hungry, I could have cried.  Still, re-do and don't beat yourself up because being mean to yourself only leads to sad eating.  That is not a helpful behavior.  Its better to use something other than food to heal emotional wounds.
