Food is On My Mind

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Today, I'm focusing on noticing my moods around food. For the last week things have been going well for me in body, mind, and spirit. I have really started to understand my food as fuel, and think about my body and what it needs before I eat anything.

But tonight, I want more food. I ate a small but decent breakfast, then had a reasonable lunch at a Mexican buffet (really!), then ate a balanced dinner. But for the past couple of hours, all I can think about it what we might have in the fridge or cabinets. I want to munch, but I know that I don't actually need anything. What my body needs is water (not enough today) and some movement.

So I wanted to write it out instead of perusing the kitchen. I feel better already, and it's time to get my daughter to sleep anyway. G'night, Spark Town!

    Did you make it all the way through the evening? Someone told me once that you know you're hungry if you're willing to eat nearly anything. You're not hungry if you're thinking about something specific or if the thought of eating fruits and vegetables doesn't sound appealing. That has stuck in my head and I use it as a guide to tell whether I'm actually hungry or not. Sometimes I'm actually hungry, though, and I'm just too lazy to make something. lol... we all do that, right?
