The past couple of days I have had to work extra hard to fight the Snack Monster. I just want to snack all of the time. I try to pull from my arsenal of coping methods: I lean on The Nine Rooms of Happiness to get to the root of what might be causing this and Women Food and God to try to identify any self sabotage that might be happening. I think it's a combo of actually being hungry (since over the last month I've jumped head first into vigorous exercise), being dehydrated, being frustrated by some geneology research I am doing and some emotions it is tapping into, and being a little bored. I don't do well when my life pauses. I have a couple of things on hold and/or not moving forward career wise and my bio clock is going nuts (but that must be put on hold as well). I am trying to enjoy this mundane time (because goodness knows things will get hectic again at some point), but I think I'm feeling a little empty and that is driving me to want to fill it up with food. I am fighting the good fight with lots of decaf green tea, water, healthy eats like apples and carrots and daikon and trying to breathe. It's a tough battle though, considering all I want to do now is find the doughiest most gigantic bagel of all time and eat it.
Are you fighting any snack wars on your turf?
