Yes, Another Post About Eating

You wouldn’t think that food would be such a complex thing but it really is. It should be simple but it’s far from it.

Today I felt relatively in control. I didn’t have any major binge sessions but I still overate. I need to get my mind out of the habit of eating a lot. Since my emotional/stress eating was going on for weeks, now I’m in this habit to eat like crazy even if I’m doing fine.

I did really well at work listening to my body for most of the day. The afternoon is where I slipped up but it’s ok. It’s better than doing bad all day!

Tomorrow is a new day where I can try to be better at ignoring my desires to eat more than I need.

What triggered my eating today was being bored. I can get so bored at work if I don’t have a pressing deadline or a busy day. Even if I give myself pretend deadlines, they don’t help because I made them up so I can break them and it doesn’t matter. I try to keep my mind busy but it doesn’t always happen.

I’ve been in a fog at work. It feels like my eyes glaze over and I could fall asleep right at my desk. I don’t know if I need motivation or more coffee but something has got to change because I can hardly get through a work day.

How do you all get through a boring day at work?

  1. I eat when I’m bored, too, so I know what you mean. It can be really difficult. While I don’t have a perfect solution, there are two things that sometimes help: 1) drinking something (like tea) instead of eating and 2) setting a timer to work like 20 minutes, then getting up and walking for 5 minutes, then repeating that process. Probably the best real solution is to find work that isn’t boring!

    1. Those are some good tips, thank you! Haha I have periods at work where things are busy (which I prefer) and the summers are always slow. Once September starts I’ll be busy again!
