Look at myself/Really look at myself

Friday, January 31, 2014

I tend to avoid at times. I will avoid logging every food I eat because hey, it was only one chocolate kiss.

I am very aware of how far I have come but not quite paying quite enough attention to the particulars that can help me get further.

I have learned so much. I should be able to stop and think when I am reaching for food. Am I hungry? Do I need comfort? Am I lonely? The issue seems to be that I do not do this on a regular basis.

I really want to learn mindful eating. I am doing so many other things right. For some reason, mindful eating scares me a bit. I am not sure why. Fear of failure? Facing some real emotions that I should face? Not really sure.

So along with my other goals this year:

Walking 500 miles by some point in March

Drinking my water daily

weighing and measuring my food

strength train 2 x's per week

eat my fruits and veggies

track my food

I am adding mindful eating. At least one meal each day should be with absolutely NO distractions. This will probably be one of the hardest ones for me but I really want to do this.

Sunday: 3 miles
Monday: 3.6
Tuesday: 3.7
Wednesday: 3.8

154.42 to go!!
