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.

    LOL! Funny how annoying that comment is until you're the (somewhat astonished) one saying it!

    Physiology trumps psychology nearly every time. Beat the biochemistry of eating first and then you'll have PLENTY of time to work out the emotional issues. ;)
