One small bite for me :)

Saturday, September 29, 2012

Today before work my roommate and a few other's wanted to go to Chili's for dinner, and invited me along. I didn't get off work until 9:30, and had already eaten half my daily calories. I really wanted to go because it's not very often I get to hang out with everyone.

So at work it was horrible, customers and my boss put me in a terrible mood.... And I wanted to eat everything in sight. I was sooo frustrated. But I kept reminding myself "keep going.. You knew it would be hard. Don't eat, it'll just frustrate you more". And it worked!!

Afterward at Chili's it was the true test. I was super hungry because I hadn't eaten since noon, and it was a light lunch. Buuut everyone knew I was on a diet, and I wasn't about to indulge when I had been victorious at work. So I got a bowl of chili :) Only 360 calories, I win!! I also drank a lot of diet soda before the food so I wouldn't be starving.

Today was a phenomenal success for me, even though it was my first real "struggle". And before this I had never realized I was an emotional eater. But as soon as I got mad, I realized I wanted to eat everything I could just for spite. So dumb!! So I will definitely keep that in mind next time I want to eat everything in stock!!
