There has to be a reason I’m having a bottomless pit kind of day.
No, I haven’t had any forbidden carbs. But I did snack on a handful of nuts, a slice of cheese and two sugar-free peppermint patties when I got home from work.
Stress at work? No more than usual.
Skimpy dinner? Maybe. I had green beans with Alfredo sauce and pepperoni.
The main culprit is more likely the bad news I got on the writing front. The contest scores I received were a lot lower than I expected. None of the judges seemed to like my heroine.
I keep trying to remind myself that this was the first feedback on my first draft. And convince myself that it gives me something to work with …
Still, it’s hard not to feel discouraged — and to want refuge in food.
Then again, maybe it’s just about that TOM. That’ll make me crave snacks every time.
