Timing Is Everything
Thursday, October 18, 2012
Today is Thursday, the fourth day of this week of being Mindful again.
I have a cold, and I'm mid-cycle, neither of which is really helpful in being Mindful. Last night I got a roasted chicken from the grocery store, and scarfed down half of the bird for dinner, and realized: Roast chicken is my feeling-sick comfort food.
I could do worse.
But I did go to Dairy Queen for a Chocolate Extreme. I realized when I was eating *that* that I am mid-cycle, and true to form, that's when I crave massive amounts of chocolate. Knowing that now, I think I'll go to Trader Joe's this weekend and see if they have those chocolate wedges... that might satisfy my chocolate monster without breaking the bank.
Sick as I was - including leaving work two hours early- I got my afternoon walk in.
Baby steps, Day Four.
