I sidestepped a major temptation today and I'm feeling good.
I had to buy refreshments yesterday for someone else's meeting and was told that the group didn't do "healthy". So, cookies and chips it was. Alas, I made the major mistake of buying one of my favorite bakery cookies, triple chocolate chewies. That rotten group DID NOT EAT ALL THEIR SNACKS. I had to clean up the meeting room before I left for the day and a whole tray of cookies were left, including SEVERAL of my favs. I did eat half of one yesterday, and then forgot about them.
Today was MAJOR stress at work and then I realized that the wrapped tray of cookies was still in our work room ... calling my name .... I finally asked my co-workers to PLEASE take care of the cookies or I would eat them all. And they did. And I didn't!
I also had it confirmed that I am a major stress eater. My lunch was filling (grilled chicken, green salad with avocado) and, since giving up soda pop, I haven't really had a snacking urge. Stressful situation hits at work, and I feel like I need to eat a whole bunch of "goodies" ... I didn't but I can't believe how strong the urge was. I said a prayer, grabbed a fresh glass of ice water and a cup of ice and enjoyed half a can of Starbucks Energy+Coffee drink (100 cals). All better!
