Emotional Eating 101
Wednesday, October 10, 2012
If I ever had any doubts that a lot of my overeating is emotionally based, this week is demonstrating it to the max. What I am noticing is that I am not only not overeating, but I'm not really all that hungry. I was going to make vegetable beef soup for dinner last night, and realized when it was time to make it that I wasn't really very hungry for it. Instead, I had a big salad with some grilled chicken breast on top of it. It lasted me the entire evening (I usually am feeling snackish by 9PM). It wasn't the healthiest diet in the world, but what impresses me is that I'M NOT HAVING THE URGE TO EAT ALL THE TIME!!
I have gotten a few things done around the house, and need to get up and do some more. I have a committee meeting tonight, and haven't even started to get ready for it--but hey, I have the whole rest of the day, right? Tomorrow I am going to lunch with my daughter and have Choral Union rehearsal in the evening, so think I am just going to stay in town and mess around. I have a few errands to run (things like buying kitty litter and stopping by work to check for anything that absolutely has to be taken care of now--blech) but then I am going to go to some of the local art galleries, go to Hobby Lobby, generally mess around town doing nothing much of use except for its enjoyment value.
Guess I should get done with my committee stuff while I am on the computer, then get up and do some stuff around the house. Ho-Hum. Maybe. If I feel like it.
