Well, it seems I’ve had a relapse in my compulsive eating ways and it’s not pretty. It’s weird to actually even write that sentence, like I don’t want to admit to it and it feels all wrong. But this blog is a way for me to document both victories and mistakes in order to learn from them, so it is what it is.
After lunch yesterday I registered for classes – most of which are filled up already I got into one class that I needed but it’s on Friday night/Saturday 8am-12pm. This is not good as I was planning on taking a volunteer position that requires Saturdays soon. Plus I would have to re-do the training program I just wrote out. And Ben and I had road trips planned… Uh.
Then, I busted out the leftovers… the pictures aren’t pretty either. But the addition of crackers and cashews to my lunch salad were beautiful
I saw that I was on the road to Bingeville so I grabbed my phone and got out of the house to call my friend Lisa for a chat. That was good. And Lisa totally got a new car this week so it was an exciting call!
Ben and I had a date at Ikea last night that ended with $.99 fro-yo. Kate totally called it on twitter. Oh, and there’s not way to make half eaten frozen yogurt look good…
We finally got a dresser so if you see piles of clothes in the background of my pictures call me out on it – now there’s no excuse!
We also got 2 more chairs for our kitchen table. Now all we need is 2 friends and we can have a dinner party!
It was just one of those days where I knew I wanted to eat well into the night, so I made hot cocoa and popcorn to satisfy that chewing need. When I feel an eating rampage coming on, sometimes I try to get out of the house to avoid it, but sometimes I just try to avoid too much calorie damage with smart choice foods.
Now I am supposed to be doing a long run, but it’s raining. Boo. I’m off to brave the elements. This is going to be as wet as my Golden Gate Bridge run, but not as fun because Bobbi isn’t’ here to talk with.
Question: What do you do when you “just want to eat” – be it out of stress, fatigue, boredom or anything else? How do you handle it?
