This is a problem that I have, and of course today is Wednesday so everything is just slightly worse. Over the past two days, due to mostly work related stress, I’m having seriously big “eat my feels” moments. Which generally speaking is a bad thing.
None of which is helped by the fact that it’s effing Wednesday, which as we all know is my worst day for foods.
I had a pretty decent breakfast, and generally avoided foods that were going to take me down a bad path, but then I had THE CRAVING.
I went into the kitchen to look for my normal go-to craving stopper, clementines only THERE WERE NO CLEMENTINES IN SIGHT. This is a problem. Because I wanted something sweet for which to satisfy my craving and those usually do it.
But with no clementines I had to go searching. I didn’t have a lot of time before I had to leave to go to my weekly meeting and I wanted something fast to hold me. And then I remembered: There was the last piece of cinnamon pie in the fridge. I ate it in seconds.
Then I tracked it (because its my mini goal this week).
Only problem: It did not satisfy my craving for long. Which can only mean bad things for later tonight. I’m seeing chocolate chip cookies or some other kind of sweet thing in my future along with the inevitable pasta dinner that is being prepared this evening for youth group.
Meanwhile, the trailer for The Fault In Our Stars came out. And if that just didn’t make me want chocolate and a glass of wine nothing does.
Lucky for me there exists nothing edible in my office. I was stuck with just the sandwich I had for lunch (sans fries – I was in a good place when I ordered) and tea.
But I’m still craving and I’m still stressed. I can’t even go to a barre class tonight to work it off like I did last night (which was an excellent plan btw). I’m tired and stressed out about the never ending list of things to do that just keeps getting stuff added to.
I want chocolate and I want it now. I want bread and carbs and sweet things. But I can’t. And it’s exhausting.
I need something that will fill the craving with out taking away too many points.
Clearly, I need to get like four boxes of clementines on the way home…
