One of those days...

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

I can see the way this day is headed! People are on my case, deadlines are approaching and I am really starting to feel the pressure of work and school... but this is NOT going to interfere with my goals! I just want to curl up in a dark corner and block out the world. Just long enough to avoid the temptations and my habitual overeating to cope with stress.

I cant do it to myself... not anymore. I think I am going to just slip out of the office for about 15 minutes... and take a time out! Maybe sit in my car listening to a relaxation tape or some positive music. I have to change the cycle of my behavior. I have to learn to use other coping skills rather than eating. Even though a bag of salty chips sounds really good right now... I WONT! I will walk away from the chaos hanging over me long enough to collect myself and regain the strength to avoid temptations.

UGH! but why do there have to be so many vending machines around here.. HAHA!

    you are hysterical!! also, I've been taking deep breaths, in those moments when I would normally go to a cookie, deep breaths where I literally picture my breath coming in and out ofmy body and how important it is to breath. then if the moment doesn't pass, I drink tea.
    I drink a lot of tea.

    Thats a good point about having money at work. I am not really tempted by sweets but sometimes late in the afternoon I can hear those salty snacks calling me... but I am doing good so far! :)

    Instead of sitting in your car, take a 15 minute walk. And it might help if you stopped carrying money at work, so the vending machines are beyond your reach.
