The struggle is real...

I am beyond exhausted today and all I want to do is eat. My 2 biggest eating triggers are anxiety and being tired. Last night, I had a work crisis that caused me to briefly lapse in my eating plan. I was so worried about how to handle the situation that I found myself munching in the kitchen. But, I was quickly able to recognize what I was doing and redirect myself out of the food. I did end up about 300 calories over my plan, though. That was a bummer.
The stress of last night combined with the residual cough I have from a head cold, ensured that I was up most of last night. I tossed, turned, blew my nose, and coughed until I had to be up at 5:45 this morning. All I could think about as I drove to my morning meeting was swinging in the drive-thru. I think I could actually taste the biscuits and soda. I am proud to say that I made it to my meeting, stuck to my plan, and ate my breakfast while my coworker at her Dunkin Donuts. One big success for the day.
