Thoughts for today
I've always kind of known in the back of my head that I was a stress eater, but it really hit home today. Things got a little hectic and stressful around the house earlier this evening, no big deal, happens with everyone sometimes. But I noticed myself head straight for the pantry for snacks in the midst of it all. I wasn't hungry at all and I wasn't craving anything in particular, instinct just guided me there. I guess because I've been doing all this blogging in the last two weeks, I was able to realize in a more conscious way than ever before that I was in the act of stress eating. I ended up having only a couple Tostitos and quit the snacking.
I don't think there's any brilliant lesson here, but I think as a result of this little experience, I'll be more aware from now when I'm eating for the wrong reason or for no reason at all.
Toasted wheat pita bread with a little bit of County Crock. 2 cups of black coffee.
Logan's Roadhouse. 6 oz. Sirloin Steak, Baked Potato with just a little butter and sour cream, salad with balsamic vinegarette dressing. First red meat I've had all year I think and I loved it.
Chinese takeout. Chicken and Garlic, steamed white rice, and a few won tons from the soup. Portions all fit neatly in their little section of my pentitentiary tray.
8-10 Reduced Fat Wheat Thins. A few wheat pretzel sticks.
