Impulsive Eating vs Mindful Living

Monday, May 13, 2013

I've done that impulsive eating thing again this weekend. I didn't bother tracking food Friday or Saturday - I couldn't remember half what I put in down my gullet.

Senseless - nibbling at everything in sight won't shorten the path to my dreams, nor will it make my pains and frustrations go away. It only undermine my greater goals and elicits self destructive responses - false guilt, self deprecation, feelings of inadequacy... These are all old things from my past which are not welcome in my present, let alone my future.

I'm intelligent, I'm capable - so what's the deal with the nutty nut mindless moments? I puzzle even myself. It's not like I don't know any better. Oh well - moving right along...

Monday's motto: Eat Mindfully! ...and I will!!! or ELSE! (or else I won't because I don't know what else I would do... :)

    Lol, I understand. I am trying to determine in my mind that this is a life long battle, but one I intend to win, then stand on guard for the rest of my life. One thing I know I will probably have with me until the day I die is... (drum roll), lol...a food diary. Why? Because I swear the second I don't use that puppy I derail! If it's my prescription medication so to speak then I guess I just have to accept that. My emotions just won't ease up sometimes so I know I need it at the very least as a steady companion. Oh, well, I guess, lol, what's the worst of it, pulling it out at my favorite restaurant, or taking notes of what I'm eating at a party. Great attitude dear! You will conqueror this thing, but it sure stinks when the "forces" re-mobilize to attack again! Glad to see you've given yourself an ultimatum, lol. I do too. Dear Lord, I've written more than your blog! o.O Oh, well, you know me a little better now, that prob doesn't surprise you, lol. Have a great day!
