Is it silly to be excited?

Thursday, June 02, 2011

Seriously? Is is silly to be excited about logging my calories? I haven't eaten the best today but I have been really honest about it and that makes me feel so proud. For some reason, logging the calories does something different in my head. It feels more subjective. So instead of getting into my head and beating myself up for my choices its kind of an action/consequence kind of thinking process. So I say, well you made this choice so now you have this many calories less.
I'm surprised by this. Like I said before, I am also doing another program and counting the calories has really helped me mentally reset for that one too. So instead of tripping out because I've made some not so healthy choices I'm looking at this list and assessing the choices. Seeing where I can make changes.
One thing I am going to try to make myself do more often -- go for walks. I really noticed today that I like to eat when I'm bored, even when I'm not hungry. Also, when I get frustrated. At first it comes out in this weird transference. "Blah-blah-so-and-so is driving me nuts today. Why can't they just stop?" But then it becomes a 3 year old reaction, complete with whining. Instead of putting myself in the corner, I figure I'll take a walk around the block. It takes my mind off the eating and it helps me reach my 10k steps a day goal. And it saves my co-workers from having to put up with cranky Cyndi.
