Trying to Fight to Emotional Eating
Friday, August 07, 2009
I'm bored. It is pouring rain. There is thunder and lightening. And all I can to is think about eating. I know I'm not actually hungry. I had a very filling dinner with whole grains, a lean protein source, and three servings of veggies. I've already had my after dinner cup of tea and something sweet for desert. I'm not actually hungry, but all I can think about is food. There are chocolate covered digestives in the cookie jar, there are leftovers from dinner, microwave popcorn in cubbard, chocolate bars in the fridge (they're not mine), and more. Right now, anything would be good. It is all that I can think about.
I'm writing this blog in attempt to distract myself. I've already planned my meals for tomorrow, made out my grocery list for shopping tomorrow, planned what I am going to serve to some family friends on Sunday when they come for lunch, and checked what local produce is available at the local market. As a last resort I guess I'll have to start cleaning, which is never my first choice for a distraction. Even reading isn't helping.
Once the rain stops I'll try to go for a walk to distract myself and keep me occupied. It is looking like the sun is breaking through the clouds right now. I think once Coronation Street is over I'll take the dog for a long walk. That should kill about an hour and hopefully I will be able to focus on something, anything else.
