One "off" week
Saturday, January 18, 2014
Well, I broke my good streak of eating well...and one over indulgent meal turned into a week of going over calories, daily.
It's not a total loss. My weight didn't go up much, but I didn't lose either. More importantly, I think I have a better idea of how to reign in those indulgent habits during times of stress.
1. Have a plan for those times when I will be tempted to "take care" of myself with food and treats. I'm thinking of making a box with reminders...like cozy socks, hand cream, a yoga DVD, scented candles, herbal tea...
2. Review my goals!!!! Maybe multiple times a day!
3. Spark, call or email a friend, journal.
If you find yourself tempted to eat extra calories when stressed, how do you cope? What's your plan? I'd love to hear from others!
