Emotional eating / after dinner eating
Monday, March 03, 2014
I hit a couple of snags in my food program late today.
I am in the middle of the worst ice storm I've ever seen. It looks like we have enough snow to cover the grass well - but it's all ice from freezing rain and sleet - 10 hours worth and still going strong. THEN the snow will come. My back door is almost frozen shut. I can open it just enough to let the dogs out. One of my dogs had waited a week to go to a specialist vet in Memphis because she's been having nose bleeds for years, but really bad the past couple of weeks. We won't be making it to that appointment tomorrow. I have to ask my cousin to postpone her chemo to help me get to that vet as she knows where they are and I haven't driven in Memphis in 30+ years. The disappointment over missing the appointment and my worry over a much loved pet sent me into the pineapple sherbet - a food I will have
to not have around until I get a better control over my eating. That was the emotional eating.
The after dinner eating was a result of my not knowing I was going to start working on my eating habits yesterday when I planned my food for the weekend. The meal I planned for lunch (pizza) was too many of my calories too early in the day. I was genuinely hungry when I went to bed. I finally had some peanut butter and crackers and a glass of milk. I was not full after that so that also contributed to the sherbet.
All I can do know is pick myself up, dust myself off and go chart my over-indulgences. Tomorrow is another day.
