|make that tacos, and that's been me|
So the good news is that I was able to identify last week that I was in my stress-spiral, and tried to yank myself out of it. I stocked the pantry with healthy-ish vittles, and tried my best to be strong! I have learned (see also: been reminded of) a couple of things:
- I LOVE grapefruit. Cut it in half, with a packet of faux-sweetener, and go to town. Delicious.
- Plums are yummy. That is all.
- Crystal Light might actually be saving me from having complete organ shut-down
- When you stop eating a lot of salt, and simultaneously go back to the gym - your pancakes come back at full-force!
- Job hunting is like dating. You wait by the phone (or computer) wondering if they'll call (or email). You wonder if you said the right thing. You wonder if they'll like you.
I guess I was just feeling stress about the job hunt. But maybe I need to get some perspective. I have been hard at it for like two weeks. A number of the jobs I applied for didn't even close until last Friday. I have moments of extreme positivity, where I'm sure there is someone out there that is going to realize what a fantastic employee I will be, and how much value I will bring to their company. Then I have the lows - which is also tied to my need for immediate gratification - when I don't understand why I haven't heard from them within 24 hours of sending in my resume. I just need to take a chill pill, and trust that something fantastic is coming my way.
- 1 heaping scoop of (VegaMixx??) protein powder (I am using vanilla, because they didn't have chocolate - and it is still delicious) = 100 calories
- 2 Tbls powdered peanut butter = 45 calories (SERIOUSLY!)
- 1/2 sliced banana = 55 calories
- 1 cup almond milk = 60 calories
- ice cubes/water = 0 calories
Do you notice you eat more based on certain emotions? How do you control it?
