I know one thing I do to allow myself some breathing room is trade-off snacks. I snack more often than I eat actual meals- especially after work. When I snacked, today (Around noonish) I wanted to eat some Chips Ahoy (Walgreens brand, really) Chocolate Chunk (which they might as well just call choco chunk with cookie crumbles because NONE of the cookies held together very long.) What I ate, instead, were corn chips and salsa (Tortilla chips, I think... something like that.) I figured that was a little better- particularly seeing that I like to bring the cookies to work!

This is how I work, for the moment. I want to keep track of what goes on in my mind when I'm gearing up to eat. I'm not sure if I really did myself any favors (Besides staying close to the Serving suggestions.) I think this kind of journaling can help me tweak my mindset and get closer to achieving my goals.

I'm usually much better at setting goals and going for them. Lately, in the last year or so, it feels so different. I feel like I have less enthusiasm for my goals. Less... room to move. I might explore this and see if I can sweep it away and get back my energy and flexibility.

I used to write a lot more steadily, somewhat more clearly. I'm feeling less interested in coordinating my thoughts. This is particularly troubling. I'm not sure what I can do about it, but I will find a way to rebuild my writing capacities.

Thank you

    It's your blog- it doesn't have to follow any order. It is for you. You can do it...I have faith in you. I have to be very careful when snacking because I will go overboard.
