Frustration leads to bad eating habits....

Sunday, February 09, 2014

I noticed this week that I had a higher level of frustration than in the past two weeks that led to poor eating decisions. In other words, rather than finding the appropriate way to relieve the frustration, I ate the following: pizza, chips, lots of wine and chocolate.....not all together, mind you, but over Thursday, Friday and Saturday I felt like I was having an out-of-body experience watching myself become more and more frustrated and make more terrible food choices.

I knew the foods (and the quantities, really more about the quantities because I generally don't deprive myself of Friday night pizza!) were a mistake, but I literally could not help myself, I was like: one more bite, one more bite and I will be done...No, let me get up and have another serving instead, then I will be done...

The only positive note I can report is that I didn't eat enough to make my belly hurt, or to be uncomfortable...sure, I ate too much...but at least I didn't make myself sick like I usually do. And, at least, for this I am happy because I have come to realize that feeling sick for eating is just plain old ridiculous.

I should have made better food choices, and I should have been on the treadmill working out my frustration....but I didn't do it. I am still working on the willpower I need to both of these things. So I am here on my blog, writing to remind myself that this is a lifestyle decision and I will continue to work towards my goals, even when I slip backwards a little bit.

With that said, I'm off to exercise, I have a great motivating playlist....and let's hope I can relieve some of this frustration on my own. I plan to work myself over today!

Thanks for listening, as always! Happy Sunday!

    I love making new playlists; it makes me want to workout just so I can hear them:) It sounds like even though you feel you slipped that you are forming good new habits that will stick with you

    I went through that this weekend as well, letting frustration and stress lead to not so great food choices. But keeping yourself from going back to that place of eating until you feel sick is a huge step in the right direction! We won't always make the best decisions, but by keeping our goals in mind, we can always keep going.

    Here's to a less frustrating week with a healthy balance of good decisions!

    I can relate. I have felt like that before where I was almost on auto pilot, and kept having another bite. I'm so glad we have blogging though, I think it helps to us to remember things and to keep making progress. Its like you said, it's a lifestyle change.You can do this!
