(Homework for my challenge)
My trigger foods are chips, sweets, and fast food. The most common situation that I find myself in when I eat these things is 1 of 2 things. Either I'm at a fast food place and feel pressured to eat with friends/family or I'm in an emotional spiral and eat to "fix" it. I eat to sooth myself and when I'm bored. I should be walking or exercising or journaling instead of eating to make myself feel better. But I do feel better until I realize what I've done. The more convenient the food the more I eat of it.
To avoid eating these things I need to stop putting them in my house or putting myself in the fast food restaurant. That way I don't have access to them to binge on it. I'd have to do something else for my feelings. Then I need to go for a walk, journal, or play with my dog to make myself feel better instead!
