Stopping and Water!
Sunday, June 22, 2014
I'm proud of myself because I stopped eating the day before yesterday. Not altogether, of course, but I'm noticing that even if I eat a lot at one point during the day and feel freaked out about it, I can just stop and let that be enough for the day. I can also let myself wait to eat until I actually do feel hungry again (the old rules on never skipping breakfast are apparently out the window; new rules have to do with periodic fasting).
I did okay yesterday until...(drum roll)...my usual downfall, which is coming home late at night and thinking I need "something."
New solution: A) Remember that drinking water is part of the plan! I let myself get dehydrated, and if I had been drinking water that certainly would have helped B) if I really, really think I need something, let it be bottled water! and C) Keep driving PAST the grocery store and the gas stations. Yes, it only takes a moment of will power 'cause once I'm past the shop I'm on the way home to a glass of tea.
