I have been having a rough day today with my food. It started with a lunch meeting. I had no idea what the menu would be so I had a yogurt and some nuts ahead of time. Good thing, too, because it was some very oily-looking veggies, a chicken breast in some kind of cream sauce, white bread rolls, and rice krispie treats. Everything tasted good, but it wasn't what I would have chosen. The meeting was boring one of those "bobblehead meetings" where we are supposed to sit quietly and listen to updates, and I was still hungry, so I went back for a second roll.
Then when I was grading papers, I got very snacky and had some tortilla chips and dry cereal. I knew I had healthier food available, but I didn't want it. Grading papers is no fun and I wanted to distract myself.
I'm not angry with myself, I understand what triggered me. Boring meeting, skimpy lunch, grading papers, being sleep-deprived (my husband and I were both wide awake at 4 a.m. today, and I'm suffering for it). The SuperBetter Willpower for Weightloss pack would call this "Kryptonite."
Once I had a real dinner, I felt better. I haven't logged anything because I know my calories are all out of whack and I didn't eat healthy. Not logging, though, is just making me feel worse, so when I publish this post, I'm going to log my food and move on. Lesson learned. I think I will bring my own lunch next time. I wish I could just skip the meeting.
