Eating my cuppa pineapple..
Friday, January 25, 2019
..and have a few minutes lunch break. Been working on limiting my snacking. When I get to work at 7:30 am and see the work load, my mind must go into overdrive and I THINK I am hungry. "Haaamina, Haaamina", as Ralph Kramden, a.k.a. Jackie Gleason, used to say. So I habitually ended up eating all my snacks planned for the day early. And I felt out of control and upset with myself.
I took a look at this and decided not to be a passive victim of my own bad behavior. I've been bringing extra raw veggies to eat in case I feel a need to munch. And I am keeping closer track of my water drinking. I actually drink about half as much as I think I do. So I am using a timer on my computer and drinking water every 15 minutes.
These small efforts have had a big impact on my self esteem and sense of control over myself. After eating more than I should of the wrong things over the holidays, I felt caught up in an addictive behavior spiral coming back over me. I made myself stop and become more aware of this process. And so the small steps, which will lead to more steps.
And more water. Always, more water.
