The new job sounds like a great opportunity, cblasz, so I hope it works out for you if it is what you want. Will be quite a change moving to older students of course. And might not be lollies on the table at each meeting??! That reminded me that lollies on the table used to also be practice for day long meetings that I went to when I was working, if you had external reps at the meeting - I think that practice stopped however?? Certainly food is used as part of many "interactions". We are surrounded by temptation...
Despite Margot's warning about not comfort eating after an accident, it is proving impossible to not resort to eating due to boredom... I am still so limited in what I can do. But hopefully in another week or so my hip bruising and my general health will have improved enough for me to go for walks without risk. Will still be a while before I can do things that require fuller use of my left arm. I can sort of manage two handed typing, but have to be careful not to move my shoulder.
Oops, about me again...
Best wishes cblasz for making the decisions that you want when it comes to food!
I've decided that it is not the right time to give up diet soda! It's a small pleasure that I have, that doesn't have any calories. And I have never found that it makes me hungrier or crave sweets. I find it quite filling with the carbonation and it satisfies my sweet tooth. I will keep trying to get more water in. My goal this week will be stay under 50g of sugar again. I did well the week I did that before.
I have 2 evening activities at school this week, which means I'll get home kinda late and it makes meal planning hard. There will also be food at the events that I will try to avoid.

Thought I did well yesterday. It was a very long day, but I resisted all the food at the event, including the cake! Today will be even longer. Tonight is a ceremony that I'm in charge of. I should be too busy to eat though! After tonight, the rest of the week should be a little easier!

Well, as I stated, it was a long day yesterday! I didn't get home until 8:30. I honestly wasn't even hungry for dinner then, but I ate a little something. (I did also have a small brownie at the ceremony.) I'm very tired today and feeling a little down, so I'm not sure how today will go. There is breakfast provided at school today that I will have to resist.

So, I was having a lovely day yesterday and then right at the end of the day, in just 2 seconds, I accidentally deleted a quiz I had given my 8th grade students from the website that I use, and lost all of their data. This was a quiz based on work we'd been doing all year and that was needed for my own year end evaluation. It was very hard for me even to administer it to them, as I only have them once a week and the last 2 weeks they'd been on field trips. I was devastated. I emailed the help desk and they tell me they can't restore it. (I feel that the data must still be in the database somewhere!) My principal said that we will work it out, but still. The kids are going to be upset too, as they worked so hard. I do believe that even though it was my own fault, I do believe the website is poorly designed and didn't properly warn me that the quiz I was deleting was the same one that I'd assigned.
Anyway, I'm still sick over it, and of course, I turned to food. I ate a pastry in the teacher's room right after. Luckily since I had sort of fasted the rest of the day, the damage wasn't quite as bad as it could've been. But the scale is still up.
And how do we learn not to turn to food for such emotional reasons?? The Precision Nutrition article that lovemyparrot posted does give some ideas - though, as she said, we are probably aware of these strategies. So why don't we follow them? Because it is easier to eat than think and reflect - and take real responsibility for what we eat??

Had an ok day yesterday, but didn't get a walk in. Today I'm going to see U2. It's a bit of a drive and we will be getting there early because we have GA seats, which means we don't actually have seats. We just stand, so we need to get a good place to stand! I'm sure eating/drinking won't be very healthy, but I will get a lot of steps in! I have a lot of errands to run before we go, but I will try to get a regular walk in too.
@Sassy1 - I use a website called Edmodo to post information for my students, as well as create and administer quizzes. That's where it was. So, the data is in their database somewhere. But I have no way to get to it, except to correspond with them via email. They did not respond to my last email where I asked again if there wasn't any way to get back the data.
