Day 4 - Observed
Friday, January 04, 2013
Observed so far:
• You know those really annoying people who are all, "I forgot to eat! Tee hee!" Yeah, well, yesterday, I was one of those people. I was working along and before I knew it, it was 1 PM and I needed to eat lunch. Usually I have some sort of mid-afternoon snack, but yesterday at around 4:30, my stomach started to growl and I realized I never had a snack. I finished out my work day and wound up eating dinner around 7. Physically I was hungry, so I enjoyed my food, but my brain wasn't like "We have to eat RIGHT NOW or we will die!" like it often is, so I was able to wait and get my work done and not focus on what I was going to eat next.
What this tells me is that in only 3 days I've managed to fix my brain a little bit, and adjust my mental obsession with food. All by cutting out sugar and grains. Amazing!
• My mood has improved about 5,000%. Jason has asked me a couple of times why I'm in such a good mood. I don't really think I'm in a good mood particularly, but that's how I'm coming across now. I'd much rather have a reputation as the happy wife than the sourpuss wife. Jason, sorry for being such a pill lately. I can't guarantee I won't ever be in a bad mood, but it would probably be in your best interest to keep encouraging me to stay away from the crap food.
