Still trigger me, as I learned much to my dismay earlier, today.
Husband brought home a bag of cheesy puff balls. I ate a few. Then a few more and before I knew it... I had downed the whole bag. *sigh* I knew better but I made the choice. I would have been better off with a bowl of popcorn.
It isn't the calories (480 for the bag) that bother me so much as the fact that I allowed myself to slip back into an old, harmful habit. I didn't stop at enough. I went for the whole bag. So, I am thinking that I need more work on dealing with trigger foods. I am doing fine with the sweets. The salty, crunchy stuff in bags is definitely a hurdle. One I will clear. I just need to work at it, think through what I am doing and why and reason out how to deal with it. I'll get there. Until then, salty, crunchy things need to not inhabit my home on a regular basis.
I am gulping water and Crystal light and coffee to flush the salt rush. Blech! My tummy isn't happy. I can still taste those dreadful little puffs in the back of my throat. Hours and hours later. I hate that. It is like a constant reminder of my being an idiot. lol But maybe the reminder is a good thing. Perhaps it will help to teach me that I don't want to do this. That it is just a bad pattern that I need to allow to break for good.
Today, I sucketh. lol
