Friday blues :o(

Friday, January 04, 2013

Today started off as a great day. I felt positive, with tons of energy and raring to go. It is now 5:30pm and I'm completely spent! I still have a ton of work to do, I can't focus and I need to think about making dinner (I work from home for one job, so at least I don't have to commute today). These are the type of days that cause me to graze through the kitchen (several times) until I feel satisfied.

Instead of grazing this time however, I've decided to sit and exercise my fingers while I come up with a healthy eating plan BEFORE I enter the kitchen.

When I take the time to make a proper meal, I am MUCH more satisfied at the end of it and in all honesty - it really doesn't take that much time to prepare something healthy. So why do I graze? Here's my theory (for me anyways)...........I don't have to think when I'm grazing. I just eat my way through the kitchen until my head says yep - we're done! Notice I said head and not stomach? I'm an emotional I can quite easily eat on auto pilot. So when I feel like I do today, I don't want to have to think anymore. So, a positive change for me is to not be a lazy eater and take the time (no matter how tired) and take care of me. After a great meal, with no guilty after taste, I will feel SO much better.

Ok - convinced to the kitchen to prepare dinner......properly!!!

Enjoy your night peoples!

    Thanks for the support! I am happy to report that I took the time and made myself a nice meal (sausage & peppers) - filled with LOTS of veggies (peppers, onions, mushrooms, garlic) and a healthy portion of sausage. I topped it off with a nice glass of skim milk and a mandarin orange. My energy is back to a level where I can finish what I need to before I crash for the night (which includes logging my dinner into nutrition tracker). emoticon

    Thoughtful planning before thoughtful cooking and then thoughtful eating.
    Sounds like a winner to me.
