Personal experience proved the rule...again...
Tuesday, January 29, 2013
You know how it goes when you KNOW a "rule" but don't seem to be able to apply it until you try it the other way yourself and learn the painful way? ...or is that just me? Well, seems like I've read five or six blogs lately about how being tired can lead to extra hunger... or whatever that feeling is in the pit of the tired belly that just will not be denied.
So, information acknowledged. But then today was a bit difficult, with a tough day at work, not much sleep for the last couple of days, and not feeling very well. So of course I remembered all I'd read...well, no, not really. I ate nearly double my planned food. I DID just record everything I ate, though, and didn't record any exercise because I didn't do any at all today.
I'm not whining. I'm not asking for sympathy. Acknowledging lessons seems to help me. So I've learned this lesson now, and will handle things better the next time I get tired. Right now, I'm here "keeping it real" with myself by telling you. I know you'll care for me, understand, and then give me a good swift kick in my sense of commitment. :)
I'll have a much better day tomorrow, but am feeling a little subdued right now. Thanks for being there, everyone. You make the hard changing work.
