I went off the rails for a few days this week. Life got chaotic, and I reacted by ignoring my food tracker and eating more carbs. Which, for me, just leads to eating more carbs.
But it's a funny thing. On Friday, I cleaned my house, upstairs and downstairs. It took over five hours, but when I was done, I felt in control again. I filled out my nutrition tracker and made my healthy meal plan and stuck with it.
It all goes together for me. Chaos = Chaos.
I need to stay in control of my eating even when life goes off the rails. And it's not just emotional eating for me...it's sheer boredom.
It's not that I don't have things I need to do, but they just feel...boring...and somehow shoving carbs in my face makes it all better? I think not.
So, that's where I'm at. I'm making myself accountable here and preparing for a busy, but in control, week!
