I'm travelling again and I'm overating. I treat the necessity of having to eat but being on a trip as an excuse to have desserts every night, eat 3 full meals even thought I spent a lot of time just sitting in an airplane or a car, stopping at fast food outlets and eating things I know are not good, they don't even taste good. What is wrong with my thinking? I have this old tape playing in my head that says to try new foods, I might not get another chance...it's the experience of a new place or season or people, not food I need to focus on. I don't need to eat so much, I'm going over 2K calories a day!
The truth is, it's stressful to be away from home, from the familiar. Waking up in a hotel can be disorienting and living out of a suitcase, carrying things to and from an airport and car, wondering if you've got everything is distracting and food says "I'll make you feel better". NO IT DOESN'T. I feel worse. This stops now.
