Gee whizz

We are currently on a camping trip. Our very first as a family. Two adults two children. Gee whizz how stressful. Subsequently my eating has gone to pot. Stress equals stuff my face with well anything really.
It’s 09:30 and I’ve been up since 06:30. To put you in the picture I’ve eaten 12 Jaffa cakes, 2 sausages, 2 rashers of smoked bacon, a large spoonful of baked beans, 1/2 slice of fried bread, a peach and 2 packets of 19g crisps. Oh and a coffee.
I don’t need all that food, I don’t even really want it. But all I can explain it as is emotional binge eating. Trust me I could of gone to town a whole lot more but I decided to blog about it to stop and control it for now.
So all should be perfect right; a family holiday. Oh man; I’m telling you it’s a trial.
I had spinal decompression surgery last October and I had serious worries about coming and camping. Okay we are in a van with an awning but very nervous.
Last August following a holiday staying with many different friends I woke one morning and I couldn’t walk. Scary, painful and irritating. My whole disc between L4 – L5 was herniated. Pulls on my spinal cord and nerves. I had surgery in Oct but I’m still left with a half a numb foot and a weakness in my back.
Being 21st 12lb (guessing poss even heavier) is not great for it.
Nor is sleeping in a cramped position on a futon mattress in a camper van. My son slept next to me but could sleep still. I couldn’t stretch out properly as too smaller space.
So my husband decides and I completely agree that we should sleep in the awning. So this is when it kicks off, we both get irritated with each other and he gets cross at the children. He swears at our daughter and I get mad. I mean mad.
It’s embarrassing. It’s a camp site. I mean everyone can hear and he’s swearing at our daughter. What a ****!
So he has gone for a walk. The children have followed and I sat and ate 2 packs of crisps.
Who’s the fool? Me!
