If there is one thing I have not mastered, it is how to avoid stress eating. Something in my brain just craves sweets when I have a lot on my mind. And today? Well, today my mind has been on overdrive and I allowed myself to slip.
I had a Three Musketeers AND five Chips Ahoy chocolate chip cookies. 516 calories and 21 grams of fat on complete junk. I know it's just one day. One slip-up. I know tomorrow is a new day. I know that, in the past, I would have eaten that PLUS some and not even have thought twice. But today, I feel guilty. I feel fat(ter). I'm disappointed in myself and I'm embarrassed to be posting something I've slipped up on on only my second post.
My new goal for the next time I start feeling super stressed? Spend five minutes exercising and spend five minutes making a new game plan for whatever is stressing me out. Then? Back to work. Chocolate may taste good but it will not fix my problems.
