Really wish I hadn't done that

I had a long and toxic day at work yesterday (again). There seems to be far too many of them recently.

Long story short - I didn't finish work til gone half 7, and I was tired and fed up on the way home, so I stopped and picked up a takeaway. Just chow mein and some prawn crackers. I had the points but, same old story, when I'm really hungry I get full really quickly. Did I stop when I was satisfied? Hell no! Did I keep going til I felt fairly sick? Err, yes.

I didn't actually finish all the crackers but I felt horrible after, and this morning too. I still haven't learned that lesson, and I'm disappointed in myself for not making better choices.

Why didn't I stop?

Why did I even bother with the takeaway when I didn't really crave it at all?

Tell me I'm not the only one!

I think it's all to do with the stress and effort of a massive day at work - you feel you deserve a break and/or a treat as you've worked so hard. So .. shouldn't have to cook ergo takeaway and we also tend to see takeaway as a reward since no effort is required. All absolute crap I know but our minds (at least mine - and it sounds like yours too) don't work that way. Anyway damage contained for you - well done - and tomorrow is another day. Zxx
