The last few days my food intake has been very good as far as good goes for me, but I have to wonder if this would be good in a person’s world who doesn’t struggle with food?
Monday went out to lunch with a friend, ate half of my sandwich and a bowl of soup. It was one of the healthier choices on the menu - a vegan panini with roasted veggies and roasted red pepper soup (toot toot). Realized half way through that I was full so put half away for later. Get back to the office, an hour has passed and I go to grab the other half of the sandwich. What a second, what am I doing? I know very well that I don’t need this, but I have a huge urge to eat it. It’s a very physical sensation, like I really want to bite down on something. As the day passes the urge grows every time I read a stressful e-mail. I know I have been an emotional eater, but it’s never been so obvious to me. Yes the sandwich is still on my desk, and maybe I should move it, but I think it’s a good test.
Close to 3:00, I give into the ‘wich. I’m not sure if I waited long enough, or if the hunger I was feeling was legitimate enough, but I resisted the intense emotional urge and dove in. I’m not going to beat myself up too much here, it is after all a vegan sandwich.
