I ate a Milky Way candy bar last night, a totally emotional response to a completely out-of-my-control event.
For some people faced with a stressful situation, the automatic response is a clenched stomach along with, “I’m just so ____________ I can’t eat a bite.” Me? Not so much. Food is the automatic go-to-source of comfort and calm when things get tense.
So today I’ll get back on the horse. I have a big day planned, full of activity that will take my mind off food. Dinner will be a simple salad of romaine and salad vegetables topped with goat cheese and grilled chicken.
Who knows … maybe by dinner time I’ll be so tired I won’t be able to eat a bite. Heh.
