When you are trying to lose weight, you watch what you eat.
Last night, I watched an entire pint of Ben & Jerry’s Froyo enter my mouth.
Technically, I didn’t watch myself eating. I didn’t sit in front of a mirror and eat. Maybe I should do that next time.
What I did do, was sit in front of the TV watching Sherlock Holmes on Netflix with a brand new pint of Half Baked and a spoon. As I watched the season 1 season finale (where we finally meet Moriarty) I just kept on eating. And eating. And eating.
Next thing I knew the pint was all gone. Empty. Fin. Done.
I usually have restraint while eating Ben & Jerry’s. For one, it’s not cheap. Eating it is truly a treat for me. I like to savor the flavor.
Not this time. I don’t even remember what the flavors taste like. I do know that the container says it’s chocolate with brownie pieces and vanilla with cookie dough. But I don’t remember even eating bits of brownie or cookie dough.
So the question I have for myself is WHY? Why would I eat that whole pint of FroYo?
Was I stressed?
Not more than usual.
Was I depressed?
I don’t think so.
Happy? Sad? Glad? Mad?
No. Non. Nein. Nyet.
Was I hungry?
Hmm. Good question.
I guess I was hungry. I only had the smallest piece of vegetable lasagna and a little salad from a potluck dinner. I should have had more salad.
I should have ate something healthier when I got home.
But I didn’t. I have to own the fact that I got chip faced last night and deal with the hangover today.
