The other day after a heated argument between my partner and I, I found myself sitting on the couch eating a Coconut cream pie. Yes the pie, I didn’t bother with cutting just one piece, but literally y popped the top off of the pie and grabbed a fork. It was open season. Poor pie, I killed it. It wasn’t until my partner removed the pie tin from my hands that I felt the reality of my situation. For one my stomach hurt and then there’s all that sugar….talk about a sugar high. More like a sugar headache for me. I went to bed and stayed there for the rest of the night.
Why did I do that?
Emotional eating. I was in distress due to the argument and it wasn’t even over anything bad. Good lord if it were something serious I am pretty sure Jack n the Box would have my life savings.
But the point of this post is that emotional eating is a real thing and I have it…errr do it…
So …..I guess I need to work on that…
This week has been a wash. I didn’t go to work and completely went off of my routine when it comes to eating right and working out. As for homework, it’s been a pretty lax week for that’s well. But while I sat back and observed the world pass me by I learned a few things; posting things on face book about your family can lead to lots of drama, once a user always a user, and I am addicted to food.
I’ll start with the last statement. I always knew that I was obsessed with food, but this week I confirmed my deepest fear (okay I’m being dramatic), but I am addicted to food. My girlfriend and her mother went to the new pizza place in town while I was at home “sick” and I flipped out. Okay I didn’t really flip out as much as I became really angry and irritable. Plus when she got home I wouldn’t speak to her, because how dare she eat “good” food without me. So therefore I have decided to break it off with my long time love of food. It’s just not working out. I must replace it with something else. More healthy.
There’s no point in talking about the drama, we all have it. Just be there for your friends and support them.
No, I didn’t do any writing this week. I had a ton of ideas and thought about writing fan fiction, still might. Just don’t have a solid grasp on a solid idea yet. I need one that flows. Maybe I’ll write a new novel based off of my characters. Should be interesting. Would it still be considered fan fiction?? I’ll write this novel in February!! I’ll have 28 days to create a work of fiction. That’s my goal and it has to be at least 50,000 words long. I’ll keep track of my words via this blog! And if you want to read it at the end just let me know.
So that’s all for now before I tell everyone I am going to write a poem or something I can’t do.
