Something happened at work today that bothered me more than it should have. It’s work stuff, nothing related to weight or food, but has me feeling anxious and/or stressed when I really shouldn’t be. I’m sure once I talk it over some with husband my nerves will be calmed. The only reason I am mentioning it now is because 1) I don’t really have anything else to say and 2) it has me wanting to seek comfort in food.
So far today I haven’t made any bad food choices, but it has been a struggle. I want chocolate and I want it NOW. Well maybe it doesn’t need to be chocolate, something salty sounds good too, oh heck everything sounds good. Fortunately, I am aware of the situation and realize hunger is not the issue. Stress has me wanting food. I will try to keep myself busy with things other than food until the feeling passes.
The sun is still shining and I love it. The seven day forecast only includes sun. Do I believe it? No. It is rare to have a sunny, warm day in Seattle on the 4th of July. I will believe it, when I see it. I would love this year to be an exception and will enjoy the sun while it is here. We plan to spend the 4th with my sister, brother-in-law and cute little nephew up at the campsite. We have trailers parked next to each other less than an hour from our home in a private campground. It will be nice to spend some time outdoors, and I am sure my nephew will keep us busy. Playing with him will help keep me from snacking or grazing all day.
I don’t really want to talk about it right now, but I am playing catch-up again this week. Meaning, I overate the first two days of this week and my weight is up since my last weigh-in. It happened. It’s done. I’m working on it.
Like I said I don’t really have much to say today, just wanted to check in and keep my hands busy for a bit. Only one more work day this week for me and I am excited to have a four-day weekend. Hope your week is going well.
