I’ll say it again…
Hunger is NOT an Emergency
That’s what I say to myself when my stomach is growling and I’m not prepared. It’s bound to happen, I’m going to get hungry.
Today I just had a HUNGRY day. Maybe I didn’t pack enough snacks for work but by the time I got home I was famished. I just wanted anything and everything I could get my hands on! But, did you hear me, BUT I didn’t cave! (can you tell I’m proud?) I repeatedly said to myself “Hunger is not an emergency, hunger is not an emergency”. It helps, it really does. I was able to hold off until dinner.
Unfortunately, I didn’t like the turkey breast I made. It was one of those pre-marinated ones. Way too salty for me! I don’t know about you but I’m not wasting any points on food I don’t like! So I skipped it. The Noodles and broccoli hit the spot for me anyway.
So here’s the food journal. If you are wondering where I got the “Hunger is Not an Emergency” thing check out this older post. It’s from an article in Prevention magazine I read a few months ago about naturally skinny people. I used to treat hunger like an emergency and thought being hungry gave me license to eat anything I wanted. Now I try to be a “bit” more sensible.
