confessions of a foodaholic

sharing my life through food

is it friday yet?

on February 28, 2013

ever have one of those weeks where you feel like everything is going wrong? it started out innocent enough with a great clinical day on monday, but it quickly took a nosedive when we had our second exam on tuesday….yeah….our whole class save for like 4 people failed it. WHAT!?? yeah…i walked out of the classroom and went straight to cafe to get myself a croissant, toasted, with extra butter please.

which leads me to the core of who i am….hi my name is taryn and i’m an emotional eater. i eat when i’m bored, i eat when i’m happy, i eat to celebrate, i eat to mourn, and i eat when i’m stressed and upset. am i hungry? usually no. do i know this isn’t healthy behavior? yeah sure. do i care? at the moment i’m eating….not really! now, i know i’m not the only one out there that does this. shoot….you can’t be in nursing school without the occasional binge. but if i’m ever to truly get control over my health, i have to break this cycle. besides, how can i ever educate future patients on the importance of nutrition if every time i’m stressed i head straight to food?!

so…tomorrow is another day to make a change, right? here’s to making healthy choices, and starting fresh….even if you’re starting fresh everyday!


as a recap on what today was like…here we go….(and it ain’t pretty….)

breakfast: started out innocently enough with a fruit smoothie made with OJ, mango, peaches, strawberries, yogurt and spinach (yes it was green, and yes it was delicious) and then a piece of wheat toast with peanut butter

snacks: this is where i get a little out of control….i munched on some ritz with sharp cheddar….and then i had some dark chocolate covered espresso beans…

lunch: i did up some szechuan noodles….wicked delicious….wicked high in sodium, awesome

more snacks: figured i’d go ahead and have some raspberry chobani yogurt, and then why not have some chips and salsa at my work meeting

i sort of balanced it all out with an hour long R.I.P.P.E.D. class at fitclub, but i could feel myself dragging, and i felt like i had sabotaged myself.

my redemption? a healthy herbalife cafe latte shake with soy milk to replenish my muscles



here’s to hoping tomorrow is better!


how do you combat emotional eating? i’ll take all the help i can get!
