Today I planned my meals as I've been doing for the last few weeks. Had breakfast, had lunch and then my day went crazy. I had so much to do to get ready to leave to go on vacation tomorrow... and it was HOT and on top of that, I was having annoying hot flashes so I'm sweating like a freak,in the car, in the grocery store, etc. Just sooo annoying!
It was getting late so the chicken I was going to cook got left in frig and I had picked up a rotisserie chicken and some fried chicken at the store. I just did not want to make dinner on top of the macaroni salad I still had to make and the last minute half sheet cake for my (soon to be) son in laws last day at work. So I opened up a can of beans, had the chicken and some grocery store corn bread and that was dinner. I was just getting into that screw it head space where you really don't care what you're eating, you just gotta keep moving. When all was said and done and I sat down and tracked it, imagine my surprise when I subconsciously had eaten within range! I figured I had gone way over but nope. I count that as a victory.
So I was thinking about the F it headspace I was in. We all do it. We just say F it or screw it or I dont care and we binge or we don't eat as planned. I was happy that the real ME was still staying on track while stressed out me was throwing it all out the window.
Which got me thinking about the ABC"s of this journey.
A where it is ALL going well, you're on track and its easy.
B, where you're doing pretty good but that BRAT starts talking, wanting things, craving things .
C where you have CHALLENGES that you either let derail you or you stay strong
D is where you are having THAT kind of DAY, the one where you DONT even try to stay on course
E. You are one step away from EATING everything in sight
F is the F IT! You lose, food wins.
G is where you GET up the next day and get back on track
H is where you HONOR yourself and your commitment and you keep going.
I is where you are the only one who can do it. I is the beginning and the end. It all starts with I. I will. I can. I did. I do.
I will stop with I. Because it is up to me.
Have a great weekend kids, see ya when I get back. Hugs, Jan
Don't stay in the F zone. You can visit, just don't stay there.
