So, I’ve been going approximately 2 weeks straight with eating well, without cravings, without overeating, etc. etc. I’ve also had 2 weeks straight of a fairly stress free environment, and just feeling happy and sane.
Yesterday, after my job interview (of which I got very nervous during) I…immediately started to eat. I felt hungry, I wanted food (but I had eaten lunch just before the 20 minute interview, shouldn’t have been feeling this way). Luckily, I ate WELL but I did snack and I haven’t even been tempted to snack or anything. I went over my caloric allowance yesterday, but not by too much. I ate a handful of raw walnuts and sliced an apple with sunflower butter spread on the pieces. I was still hungry but I had plans so I was forced to leave my house (and food) which kind of made me cool off, but I feel as though I probably would have continued eating up until dinner.
Even eating the nuts, and apple, and sunbutter all together was incredibly filling and made me nauseous for the following hours…which is exactly how I felt all winter long. The winter that I gained 20 pounds. Which, coincidently was the most stressful winter of my life.
I just need to recognize “cravings” for what they’re actually related to (emotional eating)…and acknowledge them, and drink water, and breathe and let them pass. That’s the only way I’ll get back.. because, let’s face it, my life’s not going to be stress free forever.@1 year ago
