I'm stressed out right now with work. I just got home and I really just want to order a pizza and not cook dinner. Someone please help me not fall OP. It's SO easy for me to just order a cheese pizza online right now.

I wish Subway delivered. I just don't feel like cooking food. I'm also very nervous about a job interview that I have tomorrow. My emotional hunger is kicking in full force. Please say/write something to encourage me to not to order that pizza. Any quick and easy ideas?

Maybe I can order a salad? Hmmm...let me take a look at grubhub.com and see if that's possible. I'm just too lazy to cook tonight.

Don't do it! It's not worth it and tomorrow you will feel regret, shame, etc. Eat a lettuce salad, get your protein in if you haven't had your portion today, drink some ice cold water and breathe.

You can do this and not go OP!!! Distract yourself, stay OP and savor the victory when you move past this urge to cheat.

It's not worth it.

It's an emotion spew. That's all it is.

Bust out a shake, slug it down, put your feet up for 15 mins and then see if you want to risk the bloat and brain-fog for your interview tomorrow.

NOT worth it.

Thanks Julia. I'm going to suck it up and run over to Subway and order a chicken salad. That means having to get out of my comfy PJs and put on my regular clothes. Not fun, but I have to remind myself this is for my own good. Argh!

Man, I had these same feelings tonight! But I scrounged through my fridge and found my chicken leftovers and had a chicken salad anyway. Even though I didn't want to. Two bites in an I'd changed my mind, I wanted that salad and feel so much better for having it!

You're making this too complicated. Breathe. Do you not have groceries in the house? Make a salad and throw some protein on top then take a bath and go to bed.

I know I'm exhausted at the end of the work day too...I prep veggies and meat once a week so I can always make my dinner in 10 minutes or less.

It might be a good idea to do that so when this happens again (which it will!) you will be prepared!
