Emotional Eating - it doesn't solve anything
Thursday, January 10, 2013
I found myself a little emotional yesterday, thrown of kilter and out of my day to day life. My brain's immediate reaction was to by a treat for myself at the store when I was out. It was the first time I even thought about doing that in close to two weeks now. As soon as I thought it I realized my brain was trying to compensate for the stress that I was feeling. I recognized these deceiving tricks, realized that no chocolate was going to solve any problems and drove right by the store.
I was quite proud of myself for telling my cravings to go to hell.
