A quick check in...
I'm planning to write a longer blog about this later, when I have more time. I knew I would forget if I didn't make some sort of note
I had an "Ah Ha" moment this weekend. We were very busy both days and I ate out of ranges for sure. Sat night as I sat down to visit SP I went to the tracker and *ALMOST* did not fill it in. The inner dialog started (you may recognize it..)
"Ehh, I KNOW I ate badly today, there's no need to fill it in.Why does it matter for ONE day.." (it would have been 2 days actually)
In the past the little "conversation" would have been so natural and normal that I would not have even REALIZED it. I would have listened to the negative dialog and finally gotten to the *all hope -for the weekend-is lost* .
This time as that negative thought process started-a soft, but growing stronger voice said-
" NO, you are only lying to yourself if you pretend/lie/ignore this. It was not a nutritionally great weekend-but it happened-that's ok. Besides, you are looking at these logs and data as RESEARCH-to learn your own nutritional needs! Real research does not omit data."
--mind blown--- I tracked without further "commentary"
Soon I hope to write more in depth about this.
I am off to buy groceries-or FUEL.
