In trying to identify situations in which I eat for emotional reasons, I have found at least one. I eat when I’m tired.
I would die of embarrassment if someone from work found this…and they probably will. But the other night, I was very tired, so I go into the break room, find a bag of tortilla chips, and eat the rest of the bag while trying to wake up. Thank goodness there was only 20 or less chips in it!!!! It’s not the first time this has happened. I work the midnight shift, and have for ten out of the past thirteen years. Sometimes, when I wake up during the day, I’ll head straight for the kitchen and start eating carbs in the cabinets. Chips, cerial, Wheat Thins, Triscuits…whatever is there.
I am going to make a mental effort to not do this anymore. I should run to the 7-11 and get a banana and a hard boiled egg before I start waxing off some leftover tortilla chips in my work cabinet!! I am also trying to bring some snacks to work.
Ugh! This weight loss thing sure isn’t easy!!
