OH…how I am dreading writing about this week. I gained 1 pound. There, I said it…and it’s true.
Week four has been a whirlwind of bad choices. A dessert party + My hubby’s birthday started the downward spiral. My busy work schedule and crazy-running-around-weekend full of fast food finished it off. But those are really just excuses.
I am the only one to blame for what goes in my mouth.
So in desperate search of a ‘silver lining’ I did realize something interesting: My main reason for over-eating is to cope with stress. That’s kind of fascinating to me. Y’see…I can easily stick to a sliver a cake at hubby’s party – no problem! But when the party’s over and I’m still buzzing from the house cleaning, the food prepping, the getting dressed, the calm and collected hosting, smiling and nodding…THAT is when a second piece of cake (much more than a sliver) beckons. And the quarter of cake leftover? Geesh- I should probably just eat that so I don’t have to try and resist it tomorrow.
Seriously – the mind does talk you into some crazy stuff.
So – putting week 4 under the rug and moving on to week 5 (which is cake-free as far as the eye can see) Let’s do this!
