I love to eat, and sometimes, I just don’t know when to stop. There is so much to do and so little time to squeeze it into. Last night I could not sleep. I had turned on the Impeachment Trial and got sucked into the drama. I watched, and I ate. First, I ate celery and hummus. Then I ate ice cream from the box that is never a good thing. I know that I am an emotional eater.
I ate because of stress, then I ate because of sadness for our country. Next time, I’ll have to get on the stationary bike and pedal away from my sadness and stress. If I do something to distract myself from the food, I do better. Also, I find that when I exercise or have a cup of tea, I am not as hungry. Sometimes I just need to have a good talk with myself, and tell myself;
”You really don’t need that! You really don’t want that! Leave the ice cream alone!” I know that I don't have to give in to the temptation to overeat. I want to be a good example to my grandkids.
