So last evening at work I realized what a challenge it is to not snack. Working with patients and their families we get a lot of treats - appreciation for the care they've received, cookies, candy, donuts, muffins, bagels and cream cheese. It nice but it can add up to a lot of mindless munching. The funny thing is a few of those treats I don't crave or miss but they're just there infront of you so you just grab something. Plus I have coworkers that take something for themselves and bring me something. I didn't eat anything - but I was watching others grabbing candy cookies whatevers available knowing I've done the same thing. And its crazy how you want even though its something you normally don't eat. Kind of like the other night when I was frustrated and came home and ate brownies - I ate them because I was frustrated but they were just there (sabotage?) If they weren't there I might have grabbed something else. I guess what I'm getting at is I think that ive done a lot of mindless eating. Also emotional eating.
I hope I can stay on top of the mindless eating and if I don't on occasion I hope I can be excepting of it and not become so frustrated and make even more bad choices!
