P.A.W.S.E. Week 1
Wednesday, April 30, 2014
P -- PLAN, PREPARE
A -- ACT
W -- WRITE
S -- SET
P - I am going to try--for at least two weeks and perhaps longer--a modified oatmeal diet. I will have a half-cup of whole grain cereal for lunch and for dinner (along with plenty of freggies and some protein). It seems really counter-intuitive because I am a diabetic but I can adjust my insulin.
A - I've made some oatmeal that is steel-cut (it takes about 30 minutes to cook).
W - I think I do better with food when I have fewer choices. When I am in a "never say never" mood, I abuse my diet. If I have about 30 foods I can eat (mostly freggies) I might do better. Writing is an issue with me. My blogs here are a sort of push-me pull-you thing with no clear identity. Sometimes I write my deepest thoughts and they can be gloomy. Other times I feel a need to entertain. I must take this writing space and make it productive for me.
S- Set--I don't know what this means (I will have to read other PAWSE reflections written by others). I need to set new goals; I need to set my plans into practice; I need to set aside some old, bad habits. I need to get to bed early and get plenty of sleep.
E - EXECUTE--the past few days have been a good mix of reading, working out, decluttering, and pondering. I should also execute my will (I keep putting it off). Or perhaps I should just let the default happen. I have been loyal to tracking my food and that will help.
