If you're stuck in the middle of emotional + binge eating...
I got your back, Girl.
I know you're beyond tired of those Outta Nowhere cravings for food.
This happened to me yesterday.
I had a crappy meeting at my bank.
Driving out of the parking lot, here were my thoughts:
I want some donuts.
I have time to pick up some.
No one will know.
I can eat them all before I pick up Thor from school.
I can start over tomorrow. #classic
These cravings are just an ALARM.
Something is off in your world.
It manifests as an Outta Nowhere craving to eat.
You have a choice.
CHOICE 1: Eat.
Eating a problem doesn't solve it, it makes it worse.
When the 6-pack is gone, you still have the problem...
plus guilt, shame + a sore belly.
CHOICE 2: Welcome the alarm. Inquire.
Oh hey craving for donuts....
What needs my attention?
What am I actually craving?
Alarms call you for all sorts of reasons.
Maybe you need to:
-ask for help with the kids
-make that uncomfortable call to your aunt

Monday begins beautifully.
You've got your new plan, your groceries, your lists.
You're losing 5 pounds this week.
You sail through Monday.
Yes! Finally a plan that works...
And you're only a little hungry.
You do your naked weigh in Tuesday morning.
Thank you Jesus.
You've lost 1 pound!
It's Tuesday noon, you confidently cruise past the lunch room donuts...
Nope. Not today, Suckers.
You've got your plan.
Tuesday night the kids need homework help.
You forgot it's your turn for carpool.
It's 11:28pm and you're still gluing macaroni to poster board.
You're so hungry you could eat the macaroni.
You have one little off-plan snack...
That's OK. T'was tiny.
You hit snooze 8 times Wednesday morning.
You rush the kids to school, cereal bars in hand.
Verging on late, you rush into work.
Your boss asks where...
