This is what a binge worthy day looks like:
- add stress
- and more stress
- then, just add pizza, that you didn't even have to PAY FOR
- minus a lunch break
- and there you have it!
(I'm an optician) we had this kind of day: we have 23 appointments, everyone is showing up PLUS we are taking walk ins for exams, then we're also taking outside scrips who want to buy glasses from us and it's so busy we can't even take a lunch break.
This is perfect breeding grounds for a binge, or at least, some unhealthy eating. Especially since the manager wanted to be nice, (which it was really), and buy us all pizza since we wouldn't get a lunch and this way we could eat on the run. But today was different. I knew last night today was going to be insane, it's the end of the year and everyone has waited until the last possible moment to get their glasses, tomorrow will be equally crazy I'm certain, if not more so.
So this morning I get up 15 minutes early, so I can make breakfast. I have two eggs, a banana, a handful of nuts/sunflower seeds and a green juice. Also, I take with me little already portioned baggies of nuts and seeds. Once at work I buy some cottage cheese for later. I snacked on my nuts and seeds throughout the day, I'd sneak away and have a handful here and there. I was able to sneak away twice for a little longer, so I was able to eat my cottage cheese, and drink my blue machine naked juice. I wasn't hungry ONCE today! I wasn't cranky either. I get hANGRY easily when I'm hungry. It made the day go so much more smoothly!
In the end, I didn't eat any pizza, the the best part is, I never struggled with it. I was perfectly happy with what I had. I FEEL better already, physically, mentally...I didn't want to sacrifice this good feeling for a piece of greasy pizza that would make me want to nap after. Boooo!
Oh, on a side note, I made kale chips the other night, and it came out really good. I'm going to make it again soon and tweak the recipe, then I'll post it here. :)
