Emotional MUNCHING - SCORE!!!
Thursday, February 02, 2012
Home from work - somewhat stressed out and definitely HYPER!! Ranting at DH about a problem at work and I see in may hand a stalk of celery dipping into Hummus!!!
I was actually stunned at how quickly I had attacked the refrigerator and working on eating. Before I put much thought into it, I finished the celery and now had my hand in my almond jar.
It really all never totally registered until I was sitting at the table. Hummus put away, no food in sight, my ranting is continuing and I looked from the table to DH and announced incredulously that I had just "inhaled":
One stalk of celery
less than One TBSP of Hummus and
So, I've been here at SP since Nov 15. I've l've dropped quite a bit of weight, I average 60+minutes of cardio a day but never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I would make it through an emotional rant and mindless eating with absolute control. You know what I mean. I had my afternoon snack exactly as I should have. Noting more, nothing less.
So I then told DH what I had just accomplished and because the emotions were still not under control - I grabbed the dvd and did an 4 mile cardio walk.
All to be rewarded with a one pound drop the next morning.
Hey - I think I've earned a REWARD!!! WOOHOO - there are three wrapped in a basket, just waiting for me.
