I need to take this assignment from a different direction it was to be about trigger foods but for me its more about situations that cause a trigger! This is an area I still have lots of problem with.
It has very little to do with what room I'm in or at a restaurant but much more how I am feeling inside stress at work oh my there are days once its time for my meal break I have to have a pint of ice cream instead of my planned meal
My #1 trigger situation to binge is STRESS
My #2 trigger situation to binge is BOREDOM
My #3 trigger situation to binge is if my day doesn't go as I planned for it to go.
Yes I binge to soothe the inner beast in me. To keep my big fat mouth shut so I don't regret something I may say.
NOw I will have to admit Fridays at work is donut day in the break room and i have a very hard time resisting the donut monster Everyone else is indulging so I feel the need to.
Stress I crave Ice Cream
Boredom its something salty
When my day doesn't go as planed everything Sweet , salty, carb loaded, cold ice cream
I have been trying ot work on a good plan for Fridays I have been trying to walk for half of my meal break and try to make myself eat my planed snacks
Boredom trying to redirect my attention some where else. like read or play a game.
When my day doesn't go as planned well I'm still open for suggestions on that one..
As example today wasn't a bad day but did not go as planned had ot attend a meeting after work so I had ot miss the gym went ot the store to pick up my flat bread and well I purchased some ice cream some chips and donuts. I did fall prey to the chip but only a hand full did not touch the rest I have no clue why I got all that junk tonight .
Thankfully lent is coming up and this will be my first lent in years that I will practicing. so I am hoping this will be a start to a new health habit.
