Cravings and Emotions

Today was an emotional rollercoaster for me. I am PMSing incredibly bad, and have been so tired and hungry all day that I felt like I was just going to fall apart. I had a huge bowl of popcorn with butter this afternoon, and for some reason or another it made me feel better. Once I was able to get back to my normal self I was able to make some better choices around food. Oddly enough with all my emotional eating today I was able to keep my calories under 2,000. Jon even asked me if I added everything I ate, and yes I did. I can’t continue to write here if I’m not honest.

I remember craving taco bell and burger king through this, and I was so close to just getting in the car to get whatever I was craving. I’m not even sure what I would have bought. I don’t remember the last time I had such intense hormone changes, and I think I will research it some more. But, my main thought on it is that I have made this huge changes in my diet in such a short time that my body may have just reacted to this.

Total Calories: 1,814 Total Burned: 195.9


  1. PMSing is a bad time. I go though it and don't realize it until I am done with it. I have had a hysterectomy and don't have periods (but still have an ovary, so I still have "cycles") so it often catches me off guard. I turn around and think: "Why have a been a total witch the past couple days??" and then I remember. But, you stayed under 2000 anyway. Good job!!!

  2. Thanks for your comment Two, it certianly caught me off gaurd this month.
