Stress eating can bite me

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

(pun intended)

I've been so freaking stressed out the past couple weeks and as a result eating everything in sight. I even KNOW I am doing it as I am doing it and that doesn't stop me. Am I do determined to cause myself to fail that I can keep justifying more and more crap going into my body?

I caught my reflection this morning as I walked through my bathroom and was dismayed at how awful I look. I know that's not a very positive attitude, but it was kinda a wake up call. I've been doing mini-ST workouts on my breaks at work today and I plan to get an hour long walk tonight. I am going to eat well today. I have GOT to find better ways to cope with stress. I know things that work for me, I have to do them.

Do you deal with stress eating/emotional eating? What do you find helps you in place of food?

    I have tried to build this habit into my life...before I eat anything I ask myself, "Do I really want this?". It has really helped me with my soda habit.

    I have a little list on top of a pile of stuff next to my computer at work. It's in my line of sight. I take a peak at it and move on.

    Home? Not so easy.
