My hubby works long hours, he's gone for an average of 11 hours on a day when he works, and in that time I do nothing but watch TV, surf the internet and eat. I lost my job in late August so I no longer have that Monday through Friday routine, it helped me control my weight because it kept my mind busy, with my mind idle I get bored and being bored makes me want to eat even when I'm beyond stuffed.
What I need to do be doing is moving - Sweatin' to the Oldies, walking on the treadmill, doing household chores, etc - but instead I stay in my PJs and sit in my chair with everything at my fingertips.
But when he comes home I change, I wash the dishes, I clean the kitchen, I wait on him as far as food and drinks, I turn into a 2010 version of Donna Reed basically. LOL It's a shame that I haven't figured out how to sustain that mobility that he inspires in me.
I'm also very lonely and a little depressed when he isn't home...making me less likely to move and more likely to eat my way through the day. *sigh*
So let's recap: I am -
An Emotional Eater
A Bored Eater (Is that an emotion btw?)
Someone who derives intense enjoyment from eating
OK I think I'm done beating myself up for today. LOL
