My problem lately emotional eating. It seems I have been an emotional wreck a lot lately, little things setting me on a downward spiral of attempting to eat everything in the house in one sitting. I am taking back control, one solution photos of my food I think the action of having to stop, take a picture, and then eat will either make me have second thoughts about the plate full of garbage or at least make me see a pattern of destructive emotional garbage. I will be taking timeout prior to putting anything in my mouth and declare why I am eating it (outloud if I'm alone at work ppl might think me a bit crazy if I were doing that). I will utilize exercise as a buffer before I open the fridge, an example would be 50 crunches before I open the fridge. This will give me time to think about what or why I want to eat and will help me work on my abs which I neglect far too often. I will ensure that I am eating my meals regularly and frequently enough so emotions and hunger will not be confused.
