Here are some things I'd like to do:
eat more slowly
start cooking/preparing my snacks instead of eating ready made snacks
notice my satiety level better (stop eating when I'm satisfied)
notice muscle tension and relax more often
find a new doctor
get rid of more stuff
cook and eat more vegetarian meals
I will add more as I think of them, but this is a good start. I just need to pick one and get started!
I had been tracking my food for the past few months, and got back into my goal range, which makes me feel good. But I really don't like tracking, I want to get to a more intuitive eating, so on that note, I think for the rest of August my goal is going to be "notice my satiety level and stop eating when I'm satisfied but not stuffed." Being a "clean-plate-club" eater, this may be difficult. I think I'm going to have to start with smaller portions knowing I can always get more if I'm still hungry, and knowing that I'm unlikely to throw away food I've already put on my plate. I noticed this at breakfast this morning, Larry made his delicious omelette, which I had with my favorite everything bagel, and I made a concerted effort to eat slowly, to savor each bite and really taste the deliciousness of the meal. When I got to the last few bites, I did notice that I was satisfied, but with only a few bites left I did not want to waste that food, so I finished it. I think if I had started with half the omelette and half the bagel, I may have gone back for the rest, or I may have decided to save it for later. This is what I want to monitor, and see how it goes.
