Today was easier because I was working all day and I brought good food choices with me. It is when I am at home all day that I walk past the pantry and think about food and sweets and then I start wanting something even though I am not hungry.
I ate a good dinner and I had planned to make ice cream for dessert. I only had one cup of dessert. It was really good, but I feel like more.
When I was looking for something I could not find, I started feeling stress because it was not mine and I was worried about what to do. Then my mind shifted into thinking about the ice cream in the freezer. I took out the ice cream and had one medium size spoon of ice cream. Then I put the lid back and sat down to write what I am feeling. I am not hungry. I am not mad that I had another spoon. I am within all my goals for the day. So, I am not feeling guilty, just sad that food is what I turn to when stress hits. Even minor stress has the same effect. I am just thankful that it was a good eating day.
It's time to go to bed before the night time desire for munchies hit. As I sit downstairs by myself I realize how easy it would be to have more. Nobody would know except me. So, I am going to log off, turn on the dishwasher,and go to bed.
