Don't beat yourself up because you may have been eating a bit more than you wanted these last few days. You've been under a lot of stress. No one would fault you for turning to food for comfort. You're human, not a machine. Don't look at good health or weight loss with an all or nothing mentality. If the only healthy thing you did for yourself today was to drink 8 glasses of water, that's still a step in the right direction.
One less than perfect day or even weekend of eating WILL NOT make or break your healthy lifestyle. We really all do have times like these. You don't have to be perfect to be healthy. All things in moderation and if we have days we aren't too moderate, we don't beat ourselves up. The next day, we do our best to be more mindful again.
What you might try doing the next time you feel really stressed out and want to take a nose dive into the treats is to take a walk instead. Walking is not only wonderful cardiovascular exercise, it's a great way to reduce stress too. I'm a firm believer that if a person could reduce their stress, they'd automatically reduce their waistline.
