Today is Day 8 where I’m tracking my calories, and have been under 2K for each day this past week. And today – I feel like I want to eat it all!!! I’m not even hungry. I’m just either anxious, or bored, or stressed – or all of the above, and I want to EAT, to distract myself, to busy myself, to soothe myself.
I have to find another way to cope with these feelings, rather than turning to comfort, processed, and EASY JUNK FOOD, that will munch those feelings away. I usually talk myself into having something that is not good for me by saying: I’ll just have a little. Or I’ll just eat all this, and then eat good going forward. And that never works. No need to continue to lie to myself. A little turns into a lot, and one meal turns into two weeks of crappy eating – and crappy feeling.
So first, I went for a walk. It was going well, until my high school friend stopped me on my route and chatted me up. I haven’t seen her for a decade+ so it was nice to connect, but my walk was cut short – because I spent a lot of time talking with her.
Now, I’m getting right back into my work day and staying productive. I’m also fueling up on WATER, and I also have bananas, apples, and strawberries available to me – if hunger is truly an issue.
I’m going to stay strong, and I want you to stay strong as well. No binge eating. No overeating. No crazy eating. No eating the whole wide world.
