I either need to find several extra hours every day or reduce the number of things I am doing.
This is likely a very short entry ... kind of just saying that I'm still here, but I've said that several times before.
This is usually the craziest time of the year for me with the new school year starting and trying to get new drivers ready to drive. This year I have managed to keep some level of sanity despite the escalating tension ... at least so far. This is calmness is helping me keep true to my plan of eating.
One thing I realized is that so much is beyond my control, but affects me in such profound ways.
Often it's little things ...
I realized that while watching television that so many commercials advertise trigger foods.
I mean ... like duh!! I should have realized this like 40 years ago! No wonder I constantly have trigger foods on my mind!
It's truly a no win situation ...
A no win situation I plan on winning!
Unfortunately there is no truly winning this game. We have to eat ... We have to shop ... An unless we are so incredibly observant on everything we consume we will inevitably eat something outside our boundaries ... then try and fight the crave.
So that sounds like a negative little jab, but it's not meant to be. It's my little epiphany on why I always feel so out of control.
This slight sanity and this little thought have teamed up recently. I have been able to turn away from some unhealthy food choices and stick with my plan of eating.
Every little victory alone may not seem like much. Several small victories linked together makes an accomplishment. A few accomplishments linked together equals progress.
I don't need to win this game ... I only need to not give up.
