At home, when I'm eating because of boredom, I usually pick something that takes a long time to eat, like sunflower seeds or cherries.
Aren't you old enough to know better than to put something called "Atomic Warhead" in your mouth? Geez! How do you eat cherries slowly? I've tried around here, basically if you don't eat them fast at my house, you don't get too many.

But my plans for the night were cancelled, leaving me defenseless against the ice cream in the freezer (bought only for the bf to eat) and I know if there were tortilla chips on hand, I'd be binging.
If it helps at all, I had ice cream twice today, it didn't even taste that good and now I'm headed for gastrointestinal issues... We spent the day at the fair, and I was solidly on plan through lunch. Then things started to slide, when the kids got hungry, it was 98 degrees, and the cheapest treat was ice cream. Then we had some cotton candy, and since my body is completely not used to sugar anymore, I got nauseous and shaky afterward.
