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.
