Fighting the Desire to Eat Because I’m Lonely

I really, really, REALLY want to go out to eat at the Chinese Mega-Bar because I’m tired of everything in the fridge. It’s a matter of HALT. I’m hungry, but not really. Not angry. Definitely lonely. And tired/unmotivated to cook.

I can’t really afford to go out to eat. If I’m honest with myself, it’s going out to eat because I’m bored/lonely/unprepared/ uninspired that has me in my current financial pickle.

Or maybe the Mexican restaurant for a Chicken Fajita Taco Salad, all the way, with a basket of chips and a large side of guac.

UPDATE: It’s an hour later and I still want to pig out somewhere so here’s what I decided to do. I will NOT do my grocery shopping this evening. The temptation to stop somewhere will be too much. Besides, I need to wash my hair.

I’m cooking one of my pre-made hamburger patties (that I’ve been living off all week) with some Vidalia onion. I’m gonna make a big ol’ homemade cheeseburger, with lettuce and tomato, on a sandwich round. I’ll use lots of sauce, maybe make some honey mustard, so it tastes really rich. I’ve got some Crystal Light orange drink made. Later tonight, if I want something sweet, I’ll make a strawberry banana smoothie, with almond milk. That’ll put me at the upper end of my calories but WAY better than grazing the food bar.

UPDATED UPDATE: The burger filled me up. Didn’t have the smoothie and stayed within calorie count.
