Last night I worked for two hours studying a dry certification textbook and became bleery eyed and dejected and had an overpowering urge to reward myself/escape/lash out at my sorry state. God forbid I should work!
Instead, I ate half an apple and fresh peanut butter, lightly salted. If you’ve never gotten fresh ground peanut butter at the store before you should try it – it’s absolutely wonderful! This wasn’t exactly a low-fat treat, but eons better than the alternative!
You can’t just quit things without replacing them with something else.
