The easy as 1-2-3 approach has gone well this week, I'm feeling pretty good that I'm working on it and not over-complicating it.
Yesterday I took a rest day, and this morning I didn't get up in time to take my walk. I did a video instead. I really really didn't want to! Haha I used the "snooze button" approach, once I got past 10 minutes I talked myself into 5 more minutes, 5 more minutes, until I was up to 30 and I just didn't feel like doing anymore.
Today my eating isn't going so great, it will be a tight squeeze to keep in range! Trying to think up what to have for dinner that will be filling enough but still keep me within range. I have a big appetite today! Or I just want to eat for no good reason. Whatever, I'll track it and tomorrow's a new day.
I'm really working on keeping that "big picture" in mind, so what I want in the moment doesn't overshadow what I really want overall. It's that mental push and pull, if I gratify my desire now, I'll grapple with regret later. I know I don't want to do the grappling part, it doesn't even burn any calories! Sometimes I convince myself it's just easier to give in, then I don't have to face the conflict anymore. I'll still face the consequences though, whichever way I decide!
