It’s been an interesting transition into the working world. The internship I just started is a full-day desk job, that involves sitting in front of a computer all day. So far, I just can’t say I’m loving it – it’s boring, but at the same time stressful, and I’m not getting paid. But I’m trying to keep my hopes up. Send me some motivation? I’ll love you forever! (ps – if you’re reading this blog, I already do love you forever)
Back on topic- What I Ate.
Return of the mug-bowl! Fruit, yogurt, cinnamon, almond butter. Ate too fast, didn’t give myself enough time to get to work.
The fact that my internship is less than a block away from whole foods is dangerous. Drained from my first day, I couldn’t be bothered to make lunch. I’m promising myself this won’t happen often, or my wallet will hate me. But it was certainly delicious.
snacks – another couple of things grabbed at WF. That’s another thing about when I’m bored or stressed – I have a really hard time knowing if I’m truly hungry or not. In that case I try to drink a tall glass of water and keep busy, but today I couldn’t shake it. So I snacked, and told myself I was okay with it.
Trader Joe’s Go Raw trek mix. After walking 30 minutes back to my place from TJ’s, I dug in. It was 6:30pm. oops.
I figured I should make a “real” dinner. Basics – eggs & salsa, toast, sautéed bok choy (ate half of it before photographing).
Then this happened. And I’m not sorry – it was delicious. But I’m promising myself tomorrow will be better – I will take control of my boredom/stress and channel that energy into something other than food.
Still feeling “hungry” (or was I…), I munched on some edamame. Love this stuff.
Do you eat out of boredom/stress?
How do you deal with faux hunger signals?
