12 More Days of Summer School!

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Ug, I think my whole food day is going great and then I go crazy right at the end. Today I wasn’t even hungry, just lazy. Pigging out on chips and chocolate – there’s just no reason for it! Bleh. I guess the good thing is that one meal out of control is better than ALL the meals out of control.

In any case, I feel like I’m getting a much better handle on eating reasonably, not letting myself get too hungry, eating a good mix of protein and carbs. That’s the bad thing about eating poorly, it creates a negative feedback loop that’s hard to get out of it. The body gets deprived of nutrients and has more cravings, which leads to more overeating. But I did have two great, nutrient-packed meals today. I know I’ll track this day and move on, and I’ll eat better tomorrow.

I’m trying to be a little gentle with myself since I am still working (I’m a teacher, so my summer will start when summer school is over at the end of June). For example, I don’t like to make a habit of drinking Diet Coke, but if having a Coke can pacify me so I’m not tempted to order lunch out, I’ll do that. If I have to buy the more expensive individual yogurts, fine for now. If I wait to exercise until 8pm and then only get in a walk, at least it’s something. I’m okay with this because I know I’ll be able to fully devote myself to being healthy in just a couple of weeks. I’m just trying to build momentum right now.

    The first couple of weeks are always the hardest but once you get the "hang" of it/get back into the groove, it gets easier. So keep up the good work. Might not totally seem like good work but it is =)
