Baby Step - Planning my Meals
Saturday, February 04, 2012
I'm not sure why I've been having trouble lately with compulsive eating. It's so strange that I just keep eating even when I'm not hungry or even that excited about what I'm eating. It leaves me feeling awful not only mentally, but also physically because I'm full all the time.
Every night I've been telling myself that I'll start tracking my food tomorrow, but then can never actually follow through. The next day I'd eat something that I cooked and then think, "Well there's no way I'll ever be able to figure out the calories in that."
Last night I finally decided to add all my foods the night before and make it work by balancing everything nutritionally that I knew I'd want to eat. Today, having a road map made it so much easier. And I had the added motivation that a too-snug pair of jeans is so good at providing.
So I will try to track food in advance and then hopefully only have to tweak it a bit here and there as I go.
