Shopping on an empty stomach
Friday, February 25, 2011
My day yesterday was so busy that once I left my house after eating breakfast I didn't get back home until supper time. I knew I had to eat something before I went shopping or I was going to buy every little thing my heart desired. But I was honestly afraid of stopping at a fast food place because I have no willpower when I am eating at one. It's like my mind shuts down and it turns into a food free for all. This time though I made it through ok. Did I choose all of the healthier versions of the foods I could have...no. But! I kept my calorie intake to 500 which was my goal. In a way I'm glad I ended up going to the restaurant, because it let me see that if I am thinking about what and how much I order I can infact control myself. Now do I think I've gotten that far in the restaurant I work at, no I don't. I'm still afraid to eat there, because I'm always distracted at work, and stressed even if it's a small stress factor. I'm worried I would just eat blindly, so I'm still going to brown bag it to work each day. So I made it to the grocery store shopped and followed my list and didn't feel any guilt when I got home.
