There seems to be a disconnect in my mind between losing weight and eating. I thought at first that I needed some new goals - but I have goals - I just don't seem to connect the fact that I keep eating to why I have trouble meeting those goals.
So, let's clarify some goals:
I want to run a 5K. Didn't make it before I turned 60, but I still want to do it. Maybe it's too big a goal for today? Ok fine . . .
I want to run at least 1/4 mile 3x a week for one month.
But that still doesn't stop the fact that I'm eating like a fullback. How the heck do I make POSITIVE goals for that . . . yeah, yeah - eat more F/V - eat more mindfully (I really think that might help, but I have a LOT of trouble sticking with it.)
GOAL: 1 meal a day - eat mindfully. Define mindfully: when there's food in your mouth, nothing is in your hands. No fork with the next bite, no bread, no nothing. Eat, chew, breathe, take another bite. Ok, I can do that for a month - 1 meal/day.
Water - blech! 6 glasses a day -
I'll try (truthfully, I have no belief that I can do this - but that may be my depression talking)
