Tough week is an understatement. And my eating has reflected it. I was sick and had some personal things going on at home plus work has been stressful, so overall it’s just been a mess. I realized that in all this stress I still turn to food. Now, I didn’t expect it to be completely changed by now, but I had hoped I had some more control over it and I slipped. Food was my friend and yet now I hate it again. I crave sweets, cookies has been my weakness this week. I knew it was bad when I was eating a dozen cookies in secret. Well, I thought that I screwed up, but I can get back on plan….that didn’t work. I’ve been off plan for a few days now eating cookies and cake, I keep saying tomorrow I’ll get back on and yet I sit here eating crap still and feeling bad about it. I just can’t stop….the sugar calls me.
I went grocery shopping tonight and made sure to have things in the house that I can easily make or eat that will help me stay on plan. I am going to prepare my lunch tonight so that I can just grab it in the morning to make things simple and so that I don’t have to try and go out and buy lunch.
Overall, I think I handled things ok in the end, except for the eating portion, but it’s alright, it can be fixed and I can continue on!
