Dot to Trot

My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking!

I’m Off Track Thanks To Lots Of Emotional Eating

I did a pretty good job eating right yesterday. Heck I even made a turkey and a few veggie dishes to ensure healthy eating for the next few days.

Then at about 9:30 p.m. my husband opened a gift box of chocolate and vanilla yogurt covered raisins.

I couldn’t resist.

We shared the whole box. Ugh!

After beating myself up for 30 minutes I promptly ate 3/4 C of vanilla ice cream.

Clearly I was out of control. So I drank a big glass of water and went to bed.

While it hasn’t been a complete disaster I am struggling right now.

Christmas has always been a festive time for me, but it’s a little tough this year. It’s the first one without my dad. I’m noticing when I feel sad I’m reaching for the chocolate, ice cream or any other comforting snack.

Clearly I’ve got some emotional eating going on.

So I’m chopping up bell peppers and cucumbers this morning and making some hummus. Hopefully I’ll reach for an easy healthy snack rather than the junk food next time.

I noticed I’m more of a slacker this week, spending too much time in front of the TV. And that’s when I’m more likely to eat badly. So we’re breaking out the puzzles today!

Finally I’m increasing the exercise for the next few days with daily 5 mile walks. I always find walking is a great way to focus my thoughts…something I really need to do now.
