I’m having issues blogging again because I’m embarrassed that I flubbed up. And by flubbed up, I mean, it’s not too bad but I have found myself self-soothing with food a lot more lately. I really need to put into practice some different techniques for when the “going gets rough.” Do you have some ideas or tricks?
I’m still using my Advocare products and in combination with eating healthy and on schedule (hypoglycemic here!), my cravings have severely diminished. Speaking of low blood sugar though, you would think by now, I would have the hang of things and eating on a schedule. Really easy to do at work! On the weekends, oh my goodness! I have found that setting alarms for when to eat next is what helps me best stay on track.
Oh and then take this evening…I get home from work. I could eat, I’m hungry-ish, but the girls and I had a couple of errands to run. So we get home at about 6:30pm and I’m famished! I mean, shaking hungry….annnnnnnddddd, I dipped into the soup the kids were eating while my dinner was cooking. I also dipped into the belated Valentine cookies I made for my hubs. Shhh, don’t tell him! I started to beat myself up, but I did eat really well at work today and even turned down a treat from the Dairy Queen run that my coworkers made.
Note to self, don’t run errands after work unless you’ve eaten dinner.
Don’t let me stay away from blogging again so long. Pester me on facebook, k? Oh and share your tips for not self-soothing with food. Pretty please.
