Veggie Fried Rice

Sometimes I don’t think when I eat.

And I accidentally eat two whole sweet potatoes + a can of chickpeas in a span of 15 minutes.

Like I did just now.

I have GOT to start eating more mindfully. AKA not grab my food, plop in front of the computer & work while eating. Mere minutes go by & all my food is gone & my stomach is distended from all of the carbs I shoveled into it. I’m physically ill right now. I cannot get comfortable on the couch. Every position reminds me of the deep shame I feel for being a trash panda. I think Garrett is going to have to actually roll me into the bedroom and put me in my pajamas for me.

Seriously, can someone come over & pop me like the balloon animal I am?
