Default Totally just stress ate

All day I've been actually hungry, but also SUPER constipated for some reason. (sorry, TMI, I just mention it to indicate that I don't really NEED to cram more food down my stomach right now.)

I'd been worried all day that I didn't see how I'd stay on plan because I've been hungry and then I found out something pretty major happened at work and my employees didn't tell me about it and it really pissed me off and I ended up having a protein bar that I didn't plan on. (and I wasn't really hungry for it at that point.)( Even when I went to the fridge to get it, I said, "I'm totally stress eating" and did it anyway. This is in addition to an extra 200 calories I had earlier. Right now my food diary is saying 1677, and I aim for 1600-1650/day, so at 4:00 I'm already over my limit.

I do know from my FitBit that I'm burning about 2200-2300 per day, so even if I have a 300 cal dinner and end up around 2000 I'll still be at least breaking even, basically.

Still. I'm pissed. It's not a binge in that I didn't shove a ton of crap in my face for hours and hours but it DID have that horrible emotional charge associated with a binge.

I know I'll get past it. I'm just mad at myself. What I need to NOT do is the classic, "well, I've already blown it for today...." Nothing good EVER comes from that.

Anyway, thank you for listening.

I understand how you feel. I've been trying to stop my stress eating in college and it's difficult. We'll pull through it! Sending you a big hug!

I certainly feel your pain!! I had a huge, gross binge today and I STILL fel sick from it (it was this morning) but I feel better reading all the forums and everything. I was so tempted to say I'd start tomorrow but I didn't allow myself to do that..I started the very next meal :-) We can do this girl! By the way, you didn't have a horrible, terrible sabotage was quite a baby binge The good thing is you realized the mood/trigger that set you off.

Dust off and get back on the horse NOW, not later, not tomorrow. You'll feel much better :-)
