Ate Like a Pregnant Lady

Tuesday, July 06, 2010

Spent the weekend in Oakland with my pregnant friend. She's in her second trimester (thankfully) so the crazy out-of-control eating has simmered down into a healthy abundant eating. lol.

I planned for the week and ate towards the lower part of my daily caloric intake and worked out as much as I could.

I think I ate about twice my daily intake two times this weekend. I figured out that when we went for coffee, it was coffee then breakfast was soon after so don't order a scone thinking that that will be breakfast. (I'm not a big pastry person and was afraid of skipping breakfast.)

Bought yogurt and jam for subsequent breakfasts. Also, lots of hipster cafes in Temescal don't carry non-sugar. It's bad for you and the organic cafes don't carry it. (So I stole a few packets at SFO.)

I've learned that I will basically always eat when we are somewhere to eat. I have this paranoia about being hungry and bored. I think I should be more mindful about carrying snacks.

I am also a super emotional eater. I eat when I'm bored, sad and I eat junk food as a reward. I treated myself to a chocolate milkshake for deveining 675 ti leaves. I didn't need to add the burger and fries to it but I was afraid I'd be hungry. HHAHAHAHAHHAA. Um, yeah.

Just read a board post about parties and overeating. A lot of the advice sounds great. Half the time, I know I'm doing wrong and I do it anyway even if I know I'm not going to enjoy it. (IE second helping of potato chips when the first one was too salty and meh.)

    Oi! I ate a lot during the weekend as well.
    I don't eat because I think I will be hungry, but because I can't pass up something that is great~ and if it is good, I have to have seconds...
