For some, allowing ourselves to eat certain kinds of food is a way of rewarding ourselves; however, whether it’s because we overindulge ourselves with junk food or break the diets we work so hard to keep, often times we end up feeling guiltier than we do rewarded.
A lot of times we end up feeling physically sluggish, bloated, and even sick after these rewards, too.
Apparently, this is something both Jessica and I dealt with this week. While she was treating herself to cocktails and tortilla chips, I was stress eating nearly everything I could get my hands on.
(More on that, later.)
While our reasons were different, our overall rationalizations were the same: We deserved these things.
