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) 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.

    Kudos to pushing through! The other thing that I need to remind myself of more these days is that "hunger does not = an emergency!" It's okay to go to bed a little hungry, especially if one knows, as I always do, that I've had at least "enough" calories for the day. I don't always heed my own advice, unfortunately...

    The videos of Vermont looked just like rural upstate New York to me...felt very, very comfortable "riding" along virtually through Vermont...would LOVE to get up your way someday! Especially isn't is Lake Champlain between NY & VT? Isn't there an awesome bridge up there? It's on my list! :-)

    I guess even if it's an old journey, it's always a new journey, isn't it?
