Not a good enough day to have a witty post title.

I don't want to go into the details. I was supposed to hear about a potential job, and I didn't. While that's annoying, I also am dealing with increasingly challenging problems in my family life. Without disclosing anything, I can say that things have been very hard today.

And I am responding by eating. Are there better methods of coping with stress and fear and uncertainty? Certainly. There are dozens of things I could be doing instead of eating. I could take a bath. I could just go to sleep. I could meditate or read (can't do yoga, and can't exercise, since I hurt my legs by doing lunges. For some reason, I keep forgetting that those always, always hurt me for days).

Also, I'm dealing with the residual feelings from weighing last weekend. While I haven't been "obsessing", I'd be lying if I wasn't starting to think about cutting calories and dieting. And, as always, that has backfired.
