Eating By The Clock

Monday, June 17, 2013

I am definitely a creature of habit. Everything I do is by my inner schedule, regardless of outside influences. Almost robotic, if I think about it. But eating by the clock (today's challenge) threw me for a loop. I eat 12.5 seconds after I awaken in the morning (slight exaggeration there) and my breakfast is a BIG meal (biggest of my day). Sometimes, however, within an hour my mind is consumed with "I think I'm getting hungry ... what can I eat?" thoughts. Nope ... my stomach is NOT growling. Nope ... I'm not really hungry! But I want to eat something. There have been days when my snacks (I do 3 each day) are gone before lunch. So today I've actually scheduled my snacks/meals (breakfast, of course, is history) and I see that I'm not really too far off for my daily schedule and regular meal times. I'm hoping this works today. If it does, I'm going to use my little schedule just to keep my brain from feeding me "those" thoughts so often. Yep! It's going to work!!! I AM in control! emoticon

    For most of us our minds have had control over our eating for a long time. Although not easy to do we can "retrain" them. I use the clock as a gauge. Eat breakfast nothing more until at least 3 hours go by.....I do the same for lunch and dinner usually having a sack between lunch and dinner. So far so good. Have a successful day. emoticon

    It gets easier after time. If you keep yourself busy with something you enjoy, it keeps your mind off food.
