Lifestyle Change Strategy #5: Is Emotional Eating a Problem?
Sunday, November 19, 2006
Action Step 1: Get regular sleep this week, 8 hours per night, and get up without snooze.
---HA!, I've already committed to seven, that's the best that I'm willing to do.
Action Step 2: Do the Support System Exercise.
---double Ha!, I don't have that many people in my support network. It's Glen & the people I've met on Spark... and that's about it.
Action Step 3: In your online journal, write about a life issue that might cause emotional eating.
---I'm not really a classic emotional eater. It's not triggered by depression or anger but I do know that I make bad food decisions when I don't feel well. Like tonights Grillburger from DQ. 570 calories later I'm regretting every last bite I took. Worst part is, it wasn't even that good. Not to spend this much time feeling bad about it anyway. And now I'm still hungry but I'm over calories by 100 so I won't eat... it's going to be a long night.
