Still an emotional eater

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

So I usually don't have problems sticking to my cal range.

Except last weekend, when I came home from work on the saturday, there had been an accident at my appartment building. A woman had accidentally fallen out a 4th floor window, hit the 1st floor awning for the shops (which had probably saved her) and was laying there crying in a pool of blood as people waited for the ambulance and police to arrive.

Not nice to see. Anyway I went to my apartment and was waiting for my private student to arrive. She was going to arrive in moments, I had done a quick tidy up and I stood there, then grabbed a packet of baked potatoe chips a few days ago as a treat for some time, and just started stuffing them in my mouth mindlessly.

Luckilly, my student arrived before i finished but later I thought why did I do that? I'm guessing I had been shaken up a bit by what I had saw.

Then the next day I had the impulse to graze all day. I ended up eating over half a packet of bran cookies. I'm usually pretty good with limiting myself to a couple of day.

So I wondered why? Because I was worried about whether my bf would meet me or not, turns out he did so it was all ok. So those two days I went over my cals by about 200 each day. Not so great. But the emotional stresser has been removed, and since then I've been on target.

So I get unexpected feeding urges, best to stop and ask myself why before it goes into my mouth.
