Triggers & Mindless Nom Nom Noming

Saturday, May 11, 2013

Caved in again yesterday. emoticon Got carried away with some tortilla chips & salsa... Ended up having about 4 servings instead of 1! Note to self: DO NOT mindlessly eat in front of the TV with a box, bag, jar, or carton of any delicious food substance!!

Around dinnertime I hit a major stress level and opted for a greasy fast food burrito instead of making a healthy dinner with all of the wonderful food I had JUST stocked the kitchen with. At the time it felt like I didn't have a choice since I had been running errands for hours - picking up birthday gifts for 4 or 5 people, mother's day cards (major stress!), grocery shopping, and laundry! By the time I got home I was starving and couldn't handle preparing dinner. Stress has always been my #1 trigger for binge eating and it totally overpowered me.

Yesterday served as a major example of how little pig-outs can lead to higher probability of meltdowns later in the day. I'm trying not to be too hard on myself since I've actually been controlling myself really well the past couple of weeks. All I can do is learn from it and move on.
