How do you keep from over-eating?

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

I do not want to beat myself up. But I do want to have a stern talk with myself.

I'm moving my body more. I am challenging myself with every workout. I am sweating!

The exercise component is coming along quite well. I even , dare I admit, look forward to working out.


Now that is a different story.

I'm beginning to think that I am one of those people who need to have every little morsel portioned out for them every single day.

That sounds like big time work! And it sounds like I won't be able to give into cravings.


What, exactly, is wrong with that???

Ummm, I like flexibility and choice from moment to moment.

Self, you can not handle flexibility and choice right now. Remember that frisco melt, fries and cherry coke you ate yesterday???

Or, how about all the other days you went over on your intake???

At first I was eating too little. Now it's too much.

Must. Find. A. Workable. Solution.

When do I do better???

1. When I have one or two crockpot meals cooked and portioned out in the fridge.

2. When I plan ahead when I am eating out and exactly what I am going to eat.

3. When I remind myself why I am doing all this thinking about food in the first place.

4. When I have tons of prepped veggies, ready to grab, at the front of the fridge.

Ok. This sounds like a plan. Get food for crockpot. Make that meal. Portion it out. Also get veggies and portion out.

Self, you will feel better. You will move better. You will look better.

DO NOT TRY! JUST DO!!!!!!!!!

    Great self-talk! I have had this same conversation with myself, too. I always do so much better when my meals are made ahead and I can grab something quickly when the hunger sets in. You have a good plan and you can do it!
