Ok, today just confirmed what I have known all along.. stress makes me want to eat and today is a doosey.
Nothing like a rotten nights sleep because you DH has bronchitis and refuses to sleep in the other room and coughs all night. Then I get pulled into an 8:00 am call with the Global President for my division at work and am put on the spot to come up with answers to a significant problem.
Then 30 minutes later I find out my two capital projects at work are not going to get their financing approved unless some paperwork being held by someone who is currently on a flight from Scotland to Boston submits it by noon... uh but the plane lands at 2:00 pm. Response: that's your problem.
I WANT TO EAT and I WANT TO EAT NOW!!!!.
But no, the disciplined and banded me, said hmm.. stress, I think I will have a protein shake, when I really wanted to eat a half-gallon of ice cream. This my friends is how I got fat...stress eating and lots of it. So I try to rationalize all of this.. how is a bag of Fritos going to make my problems go away. It won't. What a genius I am, I figured this out.. eating does not make the problems go away.. No Sh*t... Hmm. I didn't realize that .. it took me 52 years to figure that out.
So I did the smart thing today, instead of working from home, I got myself dressed, packed my high protein low carb lunch and went to work to lock myself in my office. No temptations, no access to snacks, I either eat what I have or don't eat at all.
My God, this is a milestone for me.. and I am going to win this battle, in hopes of winning the war on fat.
Wish me luck1
