I always thought I was a stress eater but after losing close to 50 pounds in two years, I've found out I overeat when I'm bored. With all the stress and work of getting divorced, I've had little time to be bored. I had a little melt down last night as we get one step closer to selling the house. I'm really sad to lose the house that I love so much. My listing agent is great and as she hugged me during the melt down she said "be strong and stay positive so you can attract more positive energy to you." Kathy is very wise.
Good smells coming from the kitchen always put me in a good mood, even if I'm not hungry. One major advantage I have is that I have a commercial kitchen at work. So early this morning I fired up the crock pot to make some apple confit - really a fancy name for apple sauce. Not so much that I plan to eat it but is sure smells good.
To follow the lead of my buddy Toni here are some things I'm thankful for today.
1) Great kitchen to cook in now that I can't at home.
2) Happy puppy at my side waiting patiently for someone to throw her tennis ball.
3) Nice warm bagel being delivered any minute from a good friend.
4) Triple berry scone with my triple chocolate mocha this morning.
5) All my skinny jeans are now too big for me along with the rest of my clothes.
6) To my buddies who know when to call and check in to make sure I'm still moving forward.
