I have been challenged to write down my meal plan and to write out a plan for when a bad day strikes.
Both of these are tough tasks because they require me to be honest about my intentions with food. I know, choose your hard, right?
This weekend started with a small plan: healthy omelet for Saturday breakfast; homemade wonton soup for lunch; pork ribs, steamed yams, Brussels sprouts for supper. Great.
The unplanned was cake and ice cream afterward.
The next day was all emotional turmoil. I skipped breakfast. Homemade pizza for lunch. Skipped supper except for eating DD's leftover mac and cheese, boiled corn and peas.
Today was bran flakes, skipped lunch, homemade chili for supper.
See the pattern?
My bad day is every day, like in "Office Space," every day is worse than the one before. So I have no rainy day plan.
My plan for a bad day is always the same: junk food, fast food, sweets, drink too much -- whatever I can get my hands on at the time. Usually I can't afford such luxuries, but I always find a way to be unhealthy.
I need to get honest with myself and focus on replacing the bad habit by adding a healthy habit.
Is that too honest?
