I eat when I'm tired
Tuesday, December 07, 2010
Something I've noticed in my weight loss journey is that when I'm really tired, either because I haven't slept or because I've been doing something physically exhausting, I EAT. And I usually go right for the worst food I can find.
Like yesterday. We had a huge amount of snow dumped on us overnight, so I worked for an hour shoveling out the driveway. I came in totally exhausted, and couldn't resist the red velvet cupcakes. I had one and decided that I'd put the rest in the freezer so I couldn't eat any more.
Then I had a frozen cupcake.
So I think from now on, I'm going to try focusing on taking a nap when I'm tired, rather than eating. It's way more satisfying anyway.
