Every so often I get what I call "hungry days". I just feel hungry all day. Yesterday was another one of them. On my hungry days I usually eat about 2000 calories. I decided to stop and analyze yesterday to try and get a handle on what happens. There are a bunch of factors. One is that my calorie count has been on the lower edge of my range for about a week. Another is that it has gotten very cold suddenly. I am bored at work and didn't do my noon day walk at work because of the rain and cold. Another reason is that I didn't drink enough water or fight my urges to eat when they came. I also had a fibro day and hurt all over. Now, I could use all these things as excuses (which I did) or I can just push thru and do what I need to do (like one of the articles on SP that I read today said). I am not going to beat myself up over these days, but I can handle them better. In this life journey I am on, each day is important and each choice is important so I need to pay attention and not slide. I was supposed to do my fasting blood sugar today, but since I ate chocolate and peanut butter yesterday I am going to wait another day and eat a more typical menu today so I can see what my reading is when I am eating healthfully because that is the way I am going to eat daily. Right? Right!
