My Emotional Eating Hit a Huge Road Block!
Friday, January 19, 2018
Let me start out by saying, "My name is Patsy and I am an emotional eater.
This morning I ate a great healthy breakfast. An applesauce oatmeal muffin (which I made a batch ahead and keep in the fridge) 2 microwave poached eggs with a little shredded cheese and salsa and no sugar added fruit cup. A total of 336 calories and I was full.
Fast forward the day and I had a really big disagreement with my husband. Which left me emotional. So, I wanted buttermilk biscuits, coffee with cream and sugar.
So I made out of coffee whipped up a batch of biscuits and I was determined to eat at least 6 of them with lots of butter and syrup!
Now all I can say is that when the time came to have it out with those biscuits, I ate two biscuits with a little butter and a little syrup. I couldn't believe it! I sat at the kitchen table looking at them and I just couldn't do it. (road block!)
I'm not 100% sure why but in the end my lunch consisted of 397 calories without the coffee. I think I won this battle but the war still rages on! Hopefully next time I'll decide to just go exercise.
I decided to blog about this experience to remind myself in the future that I do have the strength to overcome emotional eating and win this war to be healthy and loose fat.
One day at a time.
