@Omgbunnies:  This website! lol. I get so caught up in answering peoples posts that I don’t even think about food.

That doesn’t sound like much–everything mentioned prior to the lean cuisine sounds like a typical amount I’d eat just for breakfast. Maybe it SEEMS like you’re eating more that you actually have.

Like a PP said, this website.

Go for a walk, play Skyrim…..things like that.

Looks like you’ve eaten ~700 calories, that isn’t much. I wouldn’t be concerned.

Haha, yeah, I’m with others in thinking you’re fine :). 

But I’m terrible about bored eating! I’ve started  always keeping water and gum at my desk at work. It gives me something to do without adding tons of calories. 

At home, I try to either be cleaning (so…no eating, because eww), or playing video games. That keeps my hands busy. If I’m just surfing the internet, I go back to the water/gum thing.

I suffer from bored eating too, I work from home 4 days a week so its easy to hit the snacks!  I would suggest eating more protein to keep you fuller longer.  Also, increasing your water intake helps a lot!

I *try* to grab a bag of carrots or something similar to munch on.  Somedays… I just have to eat and eat and eat (stress, anxiety, whatever)… and I really try to make it healthier food.

@Omgbunnies:  You’re doing better than me, so far I’ve had a blondie, two cans of soda, 3 handfuls of cheezits and chili cheese fries.  It’s one of my “I want to eat what I want to eat” days.

Gum. And the internet. But I usually fail and eat anyway. Ugh. good luck!

@LibraryBlondie:  +1, and I drink lots of herbal tea since it tastes like something and is hot so it really keeps my mouth busy when I don’t feel like water

Water, gum, going for a walk, going shopping. Also, writing down what I eat is good because it makes me think before putting that cookie in my mouth- “Do I really want to have to write that down?” Keeps me honest, mostly…
