Last night I felt stressed and tired. I’d stupidly not eaten enough during the day and I was facing an evening with the girls by myself. I’ve been very spoilt with Dan getting home to put Matisse to bed and not having that crutch along with the lack of energy I overate.
With Willow asleep in the carrier and Matisse screaming at me that she didn’t want green (spinach) pasta I wondered why I even bothered to cook.
I didn’t even enjoy it. My fave food is pasta, probably one of my problems but I threw it down out of necessity not enjoyment. I felt bad for it. Hours later I realised that I forgot the pesto, now I know why I didn’t enjoy it. As I said I was tired.
Not only did I eat my serve. I ate Matisse’s and then the leftovers after the girls went to bed. Luckily I hadn’t made too huge of an amount otherwise I could of been in big trouble.
It didn’t end there. Willow decided tonight was the night to have a party, I’d put away the Mount Kosciuszko of laundry and I felt like I deserved a treat. Three vita wheat and some Kraft Cocoa spread later I was done. I can be honest with MyFitnessPal, my calorie intake is probably going to be over today.
It definitely didn’t feel like a positive food day. This is a good example of when my brain switches off and I don’t get full. It’s good to see that in this time of stress I didn’t look outside of my meal and a snack. Normally I would have a cupboard full of sugar ready for the taking so I’m making positive changes in that regard.
The overeating made me feel even more tired and a bit down.I’m looking forward to a fresh start today.
